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;


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



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.


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.
