COVID SAFETY PLAN

The safety of our community is our priority and we are always working (and adapting) our plans to ensure safe racing.

All our 2022 events will be run in line with government guidelines and, if required, we have plans in place to run them as socially distanced events.

We ran a very successful socially distanced event at Hever Castle in September 2020. If required, we have safety plans in place so that all events and all venues can be run as socially distanced events. If this is necessary, we keep our community informed and will be in touch with relevant athletes with detailed information.

Our decision making will be informed by announcements from and conversations with the following groups:

  • Government
  • Sporting governing bodies
  • Venues
  • Suppliers
  • Athletes

To plan and run socially distanced events, we are guided by the following five principals:

  • Education Communication
  • Density Reduction
  • Touch Point Reduction
  • Athlete Self-Reliance
  • Hygiene Emphasis

It is vital that as a community, we all take responsibility to keep each other safe whilst preparing and taking part our event weekends. We are grateful for your continued support and understanding.

[Middle distance duathlon] This was a very friendly festival with lots of great marshals happy to answer questions from a novice. The pre event information and the briefing on the day we're very comprehensive. The run was undulating but not hilly, and was scenic through the castle ground and surrounding area. Everything felt well organised and there were good food facilities at the end. The bike ride was TOUGH though. 815m of ascent in 45km and some steep descents on fast, poorly surfaced roads which felt pretty hairy for a first event! The junctions were well marshalled and two hazards red flagged but there were long stretches of road with no marshals and we had no means of contacting anyone in the event of injury or bike issues, in a very rural area. A fun event, and I'm glad I did it. I would race with this organiser again, but probably not on this route (or at least not without a lot more experience on the bike and some extra gears!)
