2021  BUTTERFIELD OLYMPIC DISTANCE TRIATHLON CHAMPIONSHIPS, SPRINT AND JUNIOR TRIATHLONS FOR INDIVIDUALS ONLY

DATE : SUNDAY 26th September 2021 

VENUE : CLEARWATER BEACH, SOUTHSIDE, ST.DAVID'S.

IMPORTANT WHEN ENTERING: AGE GROUP IS THE AGE YOU / YOUR CHILD WILL BE ON THE 31ST DECEMBER 2021, NOT YOUR /YOUR CHILD'S AGE ON THE DAY OF THE RACE. FOR EXAMPLE : IF YOUR CHILD IS 10 ON RACE DAY BUT WILL BE 11 BEFORE THE 31ST DECEMBER 2021 THEN YOU MUST ENTER HIM/HER IN THE 11-12 RACE AND NOT THE 7-10 RACE.

Due to Covid-19 measures we will be restricting the total number of entries to 50 TOTAL for ALL JUNIOR races, 50 for the SPRINT Distance triathlon and 50 for the OLYMPIC-Distance National championship triathlon. All participants must wear a mask when not competing unless socially distanced.

A Sept 9 Message from the President of the BTA about this event concerning COVID guidelines which will be in effect for this event:

The BTA has been granted an exemption permit for the Butterfield Triathlon on the 26th September, and as such is going to be a safekey event for participants, volunteers, marshalls and spectators.

Those who have been fully vaccinated can access their safekey via their vaccine certificate. Those who have not been vaccinated will need a negative test which the BTA in conjunction with the Dept of Youth and Sport can arrange for the Thursday prior to the race in order that the test can be processed in time. You will have to notify us that you require a test.

Your safekey will have to be shown at number pick up as proof of eligibility- no safekey- no racing.

I urge all those who are not vaccinated to get vaccinated and to convince others to get vaccinated.
