With the devolved governments and UK announcing or in the process of announcing their roadmaps out of national lockdowns, we are happy to be part of The Big Reboot which will lead the sport back to activity in 2021.
Having seen in-person swim, bike, run activity much reduced over the past 12 months, Welsh Triathlon and the Home Nations along with British Triathlon are developing and delivering their plans to give the sport a reboot as lockdown restrictions ease across Britain.
Aimed at supporting all aspects of the sport, each Home Nation will be providing guidance, support and opportunities for existing and aspiring athletes to dig out their goggles, pump up their tyres and tighten their laces for when club training sessions and local events can resume.
Support will also be on offer for clubs, coaches and volunteers from across the sport, helping them to deliver their activities safely and make the most of the opportunities to engage their local communities in swim, bike, run.
Organised triathlon activity has not been possible since December in Wales and, for now, Welsh Triathlon and the Home Nations along await further clarity from their respective government’s on their easing before issuing guidance as part of The Big Reboot campaign.
‘The team at Welsh Triathlon has been working all through 2020 and into 2021 to ensure that the minute activity can return to Wales we are ready to deliver, whether that’s through safe guidance, new initiatives, supporting funding applications or just engaging and supporting event organisers, individuals and clubs.
We have started to REBOOT and encourage you to do the same – feel spring in the air!’
