With all prior triathlons cancelled over the summer, Hever did a magnificent job staging this event which has always been the biggest youth triathlon in the UK and worldwide. The event saw strict social distancing rules applied, with the first discipline, the swim, having triathletes start out ten seconds apart.
Conditions over the two days were cold and windy, which meant the water temperature was only 13 degrees. This forced the swim part of the event to be reduced by 50%. WGEL had no fewer than seven triathletes competing over the two days.
