Covid Guidelines

GTC’s activities are organised in adherence to Covid-19 guidance as issued by the Scottish Government, Triathlon Scotland and sportscotland.

From January 4, 2021, if you live in mainland Scotland you must follow the Stay at Home government guidance.  By law, in a level 4 area, you are required to stay at home except for essential purposes, similar to the position we were in last March.

For the purposes of sports and exercise, the details are:

A maximum of 2 people from 2 separate households can meet outdoors for swim, bike or run activity. Children under the age of 12 from these households do not count towards this number.

The members of an individual household or extended household can meet outdoors for swim, bike, run activity.

You can travel for local outdoor swim, bike, run activity, such as walking, cycling or running, that starts and finishes at the same place (which can be up to five miles from the boundary of your local authority area), as long as you abide by the rules on meeting other households.

Organised outdoor swim, bike or run activities can only take place within a single household group, or a group containing no more than 2 people from 2 different households. Children under the age of 12 from these households do not count towards this number.

Organised outdoor swim, bike, run activity for under-12s can continue. Note: Triathlon Scotland is awaiting further guidance on this area and will provide updates as soon as possible.

No permits will be issued for swim, bike, run events due to take place in mainland Scotland before February 1, 2021.
