Covid-19 Update ( as of 17/03/2020)
After continued monitoring of the Covid-19 pandemic and the government’s advice, we have made the decision to reschedule the Wilmslow Triathlons until Sunday 13th September 2020.
Yesterday the government did not ban mass participation events. What they did do was say that people should avoid non-essential travel and avoid contact with others. They also advised reducing social contact and increasing social distancing. With this advice we have no other option but to reschedule the Wilmslow Triathlons.
The team are really disappointed as they have been working hard to ensure we were able to deliver a great event. We will continue to work on delivering an exceptional event experience on 13th September.
If you are unable to participate on the new date we also have a Duathlon scheduled on 4th October. We are happy to accommodate you on this date
If we haven’t heard from you before the 6th April 2020 you will be automatically transferred to the new date of 13th September 2020. You do not have to do anything and you will be contacted nearer the time regards the details.
Whilst we wanted to put on a great event, we absolutely do not want to compromise the safety of participants, volunteers and spectators nor the local / wider community. We hope you understand and appreciate the difficulty in coming to this decision, which has been taken out of our hands.
Please accept our apologies for any disruption that this may have caused and we look forward to making your event experience in October one to remember.

P.S. Virtual Events, whilst we are seeing a plethora of these crop up we have a few clever people working on a couple of ideas.. This will be done as a cost neutral activity to us if we get something going:-)
An awesome first timer event with a safe and clean pool based swim in Wilmslow leisure centre with controlled lanes and seeded starts, which as the day moves on turns into an early season opener for the seasoned triathlete. With something for everyone to make the event go forward its a perfect day in the spring calendar.
16 lengths in the pool, get there in plenty of time and watch the swim unfold in front of you.
Undulating but forgiving bike course with a suburban start until you are out on the open roads of Wilmslow and the surrounding towns. Couple of cheeky climbs to keep you honest but nothing that would overly worry novice / experienced athlete alike. Back to the Leisure centre for the Run.
After a quick change you are on the run, nothing too steep, nothing too flat, mixed terrain, but most trainers will be suited to this environment. Follow the signs and obey the marshalls instructions and you will be through the finish to collect your medal.
