Return to play guidance


Further easing of restrictions sees groups of up to 30 able to meet together outdoors.

Welsh Government will permit groups of up to 30 people to meet outside whilst still adhering to social distancing rules.  This means more social activity can be resumed with friends and family. 

This does not change the rules for organised club activity.  Any outdoor Triathlon club activity can resume under the existing Welsh Triathlon club coaching rules whilst maintaining social distancing, strict hygiene and track and trace protocols.

Welsh Triathlon with British Triathlon has created detailed guidance information to ensure that you have a safe and easy return to competition and training in a Covid-19 Secure manner. Below, you will find our updated guidance for Individual Training, Clubs and Coaches, and Event Participants. 

Currently, and in line with Welsh Government Guidance, Welsh Triathlon can only permit events of up to 30 people including the delivery team. We continue to work with the sector and Welsh Government to return to permitting all events as soon as is possible. 

The Welsh Government has updated the rules around children, permitting children up to the age of 11 to meet without needing to adhere to the social distance rules.  This will make Junior Club activity easier to manage for this age group.   

It is hoped that we will now see indoor swimming pools reopening from the 10th August though each individual pool will need to make that decision as to when they are able to open.  We would ask each club to get in touch with their local pool to discuss access but to be mindful that some leisure providers are having to make very difficult decisions on opening.

New guidance to support you through the process 

Individual training

With the resumption of swim, bike, run activity, it is important to recognise that there are some lasting effects of the lockdown period. This document intends to support you as you return to organised swim, bike, run events and activity, and to help you train safely and effectively.  


Clubs and Coaches

Ahead of planning club or coaching activity, it is vital to ensure that all activity is planned in a Covid-19 Secure manner. The Welsh government has established guidelines to ensure participant safety when they are taking part in sporting activity. The guidance we have produced must be adhered to in order for our clubs and coaches to remain insured. 


Events and competitions

Future events and competitions must be run in a Covid-19 Secure manner, which means that your experience will be different to what you would normally expect. We have summarised what you should expect when you return to competition and created a detailed document that you can download.
