Level 3 & Triathlon Training

Covid19 Update Graphic

From midnight tonight (Tuesday, 6th October) until the 27th of October, all counties in the Republic of Ireland will be on Level 3 of the Government's Framework for Living with Covid-19. As a triathlon community we ask that you continue to adhere to the guidance, remain within your county when training, and look out for each other.

What does Level 3 mean?

In terms of Triathlon Ireland Training, the following are the key points for clubs and members when training;

Outdoors

  • Triathlon Ireland members can train within their own county.
  • Triathlon Ireland members can train together outdoors in multiple groups of 15.

Indoors

*UPDATED*

Sport Ireland have approved club pool sessions, however this will be at the discretion of the pool operator. The following must be in place;

  • Social distancing restrictions in place at the pool must be observed.
  • Sessions are individualised rather than group or pod based. The numbers below allow sufficient spacing to be classified as individualised training, with a club coach leading the session. 
  • Each individual should be given their own start and end point to avoid congregation at either end of the pool. 

  • 50m Pool – up to 6 individual athletes per lane 
  • 25m Pool – up to 5 individual athletes per lane 
  • 20m Pool – up to 4 individual athletes per lane 

  • A maximum of 2 coaches per session, working from opposite sides /ends of the pool

No other indoor training permitted.

Pods

Training pods should be maintained and pods should avoid mixing. Coaches & Instructors should be included in the pod sizes. Congregation pre and post sessions should be avoided.
