Worried that COVID-19 has ruined 2020? Have no fear: with the new COVID guidelines in place, the triathlon season has come back to life. Below is a list of most of the triathlons still happening in autumn 2020 in Britain.

I say most because I have cut plenty out. I haven't included GO TRIs, and I'm only counting triathlons (so no duathlons or aquathons). I have also cut any events in August because we are already halfway through, relays, cross events, anything not on the British mainland and any that are already sold out or closed.
