Latest review changes for organised Triathlon 06/11/20 for new Welsh Government National Restrictions implemented from 09/11/20
The restrictions of social gatherings do not apply in the same way to sport as they do in social situations.
Organised Outdoor gatherings
Up to 30 people can take part in organised outdoors activities, but the organisers will need to take all reasonable measures to reduce the risk of spreading the virus as outlined in the clubs guidance
Children aged under 11 plus those organising the activity (such as coaches) are NOT INCLUDED in these numbers.
Up to 15 people will be able to take part in an organised indoor group activity, whilst individual indoor exercise is still permissible as before the firebreak.
However, there are two important additions to note:
- Children aged under 11 plus those organising the activity (such as coaches) are NOT INCLUDED in these numbers. The number of children aged under 11 who can legally participate is constrained only by the boundaries of the setting (space) and the need for sufficient adults to be present to supervise.
- Simultaneous groups of 15 people will be able to take part in organised activities indoors, using the UK Active guidance to determine the maximum capacity for the available setting (space).
As with outdoor gatherings all activity must follow the guidance outlined in the club guidance document.
The Welsh Government rules around children, permit 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. As long as the activity is organised by a responsible body such as a sports club, a public body, a charity or a gym or leisure centre. The number of children aged under 11 who can legally participate is constrained only by the boundaries of the setting and the need for sufficient adults to be present to supervise.

New guidance to support you through the process
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.
