UK Triathlon Race Day Social Distancing

All UK Triathlon 2020 events whether swimming pool or open water swims

Social Distancing
Can we please remind you it is each and every person's responsibility to social distance, wherever they are in this country. The same will apply at ALL UK Triathlon events.

Start Format
Instead of mass starts throughout the day for open water events, each competitor will start at 30 second intervals, giving everyone their own individual start time and space. We run this format in all our pool based triathlons and it works perfectly. Pool based events will also probably have slightly longer start intervals than usual, most likely 30 seconds between competitors.
We will ask you not to unnecessarily bring spectators to the events to help make social distancing easier for everyone.
Only one competitor will be allowed to register at a time. The queue for registration will be separated by ground stakes to assure a minimum of 2 metre separation. We will provide a sanitising hand station which you must use before entering registration.
Transition (in & out)
Competitors will be sent to consecutive numbered cycle racks so to avoid racking cycles next to each other. There will be a 10 minute time limit for racking your cycle and the same for retrieving your cycle after the event.
Race Brief
Race brief will be available to watch online at
There will also be a rolling live race brief at the poolside or lakeside. As competitors will start every 30 seconds, this will prevent groups of people and a 2 metre distancing measure will be in operation.
Finish Line
When you have crossed the finish line, we ask you not to stay in that area for any longer than required. Drinks will be dispensed for you at the finish feed area, please move away as quickly as possible to allow other finishers through.
We will not operate our results screen at the event. Provisional results will be online at later the same day.
Prize Presentation
Presentations will take place throughout the day, please observe 2 metre social distancing if attending the presentation.

The Event

There are two distances to choose from 1.2 mile Lake Swim - 6.5 mile Lakeside Run or 0.6 mile Lake Swim - 3.25 mile Lakeside Run.

One or two complete laps of Alderford's spring fed lake is the first challenge followed by a two or four lap picturesque lakeside run.

Any ability is welcome and everyone receives a prestigious finishers medal.

There are also awards for overall top three male and female as well as first place male and female in 40+, 50+ and 60+ age groups.

Wetsuits are compulsory for the Ultimate Aquathlon and Relay, but not for the Ultimate Half Aquathlon.
