COVID-19 Measures

We have many measures in place this year to make this event as COVID safe as possible:

- Sanitising stations

- The use (and provision) of face coverings

- Implementation of one-way-systems

- Smaller heats

- Two registrations

 

Toilets and Changing

Due to COVID-19 precautions showers will not be available this year. Hall 2 in the ISE will be used as a bag-drop and changing area, however competitors will leave their belongings at their own risk and we will not be liable for any damages or theft. 

Hall 2 will follow a one way system so please follow this to keep everyone safe, and please wear a face covering whenever you are not racing.

There is a short walk between the ISE hall and the pool/transition area. We ask that you bring flip-flops or something similar to wear to walk over the concrete between these two areas. You will be able to leave these shoes in a separate area next to transition and collect them after racing.

There will be toilets available to use in the ISE. Please wear a face covering at all times and wash your hands after using the facilities.
