In light of the Covid-19 crisis, Glasgow Triathlon Club has decided to take the following actions. We have been guided by the UK and Scottish governments and the updated statement from Triathlon Scotland.
We are a community and we must look out for each other. That means taking actions now that help to reduce the strain on our public services and help to support the government’s desire to reduce non-essential contact.
Latest updated actions:
The Big Bobble Hats Bishopbriggs Sprint & Novice Triathlon: The race, which was due to take place on May 3, 2020, is postponed. The race organiser will investigate whether we can rearrange for later in the year. More details will follow for all entrants.
Weekly coached sessions: All coached sessions will stop from (and including) today. This was a difficult decision, given that many venues remain open, however the club trustees believe coached sessions do not fit with the principles of social isolation and until such time that there is greater clarity it is better to take a cautious approach.
Online support: Our head coaches are looking at the support they can offer members over the short term. This may include exercises we do alone, at home or online. More details will follow.
President Sean Webster said: “These are unknown times, however we hope that everyone understands that the actions we take are with the best of intentions to ensure, even in a small way, we offer a helping hand – or elbow tap – to those who needs it.”
