Based upon BTF proposals outlined in 2020, which we successfully implemented with our Cowman Duathlon event, this event will be run in a time-trial format. This means you will have isolated swim times, transition times, run and bike times added together to give you an overall finish time. This is just one of the number of measures taken to ensure a COVID-19 safe event.
Of course, our wish is to host an event as close to 'normal' to our traditional Cowman Triathlon as possible, so if by July/August 2021, social distancing is no longer a necessity and our event permit allows, the event shall take place on the 1st August with a mass start and a non-time-trial format once more.
For now, however, we will be preparing for the event with COVID-19 restrictions in place.
