With the UK and devolved governments announcing or in the process of announcing their roadmaps out of national lockdowns, British Triathlon, Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland and Welsh Triathlon have announced 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, British Triathlon and the three Home Nations 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 the UK and devolved governments announced their respective national lockdowns and, for now, British Triathlon, Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland and Welsh Triathlon await further clarity from their respective government’s on their easing before issuing guidance as part of The Big Reboot campaign.

Andy Salmon, British Triathlon CEO, said: “Triathlon, as with the whole of society, has had its challenges and has had to adapt over the last year and, as all three Home Nations eagerly anticipate the opportunity to get back to organised swim, bike, run, I’m incredibly pleased that we’re able to play our role as the national governing body in supporting this return to action.

“The return will look different in each Home Nation, and Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland and Welsh Triathlon will be organising their own reboot plans to best meet the needs of their clubs, members and event organisers.

“With the encouraging announcements and signs that sport will be returning gradually over the coming weeks and months, it’s time to reboot so that we’re in the best position possible for when Covid-Secure sport is possible at clubs and events across Britain.”
