Safe Return....


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Triathlon today announced its Safe Return to Multisport initiative, a comprehensive and multi-pronged approach that will outline racing and training guidelines and recommendations for the multisport community to manage the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The first two documents in the series, “USA Triathlon Safe Return to Multisport Guidelines” and “Return to Racing Recommendations for Race Directors,” are available now. 

The initiative has been developed in coordination with experienced race directors, medical experts, certified coaches, club directors, officials, athletes and endurance sport leaders while relying on fact-based recommendations from other expert resources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, Occupational Safety and Health Administration and utilizing sport-specific guidelines developed by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee and the International Triathlon Union. These documents are intended to be used in conjunction with guidelines issued by federal, state and local authorities — including adherence to mass gathering thresholds, physical distancing and sanitation protocols. 

The “USA Triathlon Safe Return to Multisport Guidelines” document uses the U.S. government’s three-phased approach to reopening America as a framework to give the entire multisport community guidance on racing and training. The document is designed to comply with federal guidelines for individuals and employers. It is, however, flexible to allow race directors to adapt their application to guidance from state and local authorities as well as local circumstances, such as population density regulations and severity of COVID-19 outbreaks.   READ MORE
