Dear Cheltenham Tri in the Park Junior and Adult Triathlon Supporters:
Based on the latest government instruction around Coronavirus / COVID-19, and in line with other national governing bodies, our governing body British Triathlon and the three Home Nations (Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland, Welsh Triathlon, alongside the Triathlon Trust) have decided to extend the suspension of all triathlon activity until at least 30th June.
All triathlon events, large and small, across the UK scheduled between now and 30th June will not be permitted. As it currently stands (at time of this email) events scheduled from 1st July are in a pending state, by the discretion of the organiser and their local authorities. Tri in the Park Junior and Adult Triathlon 2020 is set to take place on Saturday 11th July – only 11 days after the suspension is due to lifted.
After much consideration therefore, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel this years event.
This may seem like an early call to make, however we do not want to compromise the quality and safety of our family friendly event.
It it far too early to know and understand the likelihood of the restrictions and suspensions being extended. Training facilities and the opportunities for our competitors to train safely currently remain limited therefore planning, organising and attempting to go ahead as scheduled in these changing times is not without multiple risks, to everyone involved. Ultimately our priority, is and always will be, to safeguard the wellbeing and happiness of our competitors, supporters, spectators and event crew.
All competitors should have recieved an email with further information and details.
We hope you understand that we strive to achieve high standards by offering our competitors a safe, well organised and fully attended event.
Cheltenham Triathlon Club are looking forward to next year and hope that you will all join us in making Cheltenham Tri in the Park Junior and Adult Triathlon 2021 our best event yet!
Many thanks, best wishes and stay safe!
