CTC Resumes Club Organized Training

RETURN TO TRAINING:

The Cleveland Triathlon Club (CTC) is happy to announce return to club-sponsored outdoor training opportunities. CTC is committed to keeping our members engaged in the multi-sport lifestyle with training and educational opportunities.  The restart of group training carries a risk, but with proactive steps, we can mitigate the risk and train safely. 

CTC sponsored training opportunities will be posted on the Club Calendar, Facebook Page and announced in the bi-weekly e-mail blast.  Activities hosted and titled as CTC has the support of the club and is covered by USAT insurance for club members participating.   The opportunities will be organized by club members and volunteers to help keep the activities safe for everyone who wants to participate.

While some training activities are separately announced by club members, “who wants to swim/bike/run with me?”, they are not officially endorsed by the club, but it is expected that all safety guidelines are followed. 

By applying the basic precautions listed below, you can help reduce risk.  The ABCDs of COVID-19:

Always wear a mask.  We acknowledge that the covering may be removed during training, but please wear them prior to the start of training, after training, and during shared transportation.  Note that masking is not a substitute to physical distancing.

Be aware of symptoms- Stay home when you are sick.  If you have a fever, stay home for at least 72 hours after your fever is gone without having used fever-reducing medicines.

Clean your hands frequently- bring sanitizer with you to use before and after training.

Distance- maintain 6 feet apart as much as possible.  Physical closeness and time both increase exposure.  There is No magic to 6 feet, if you can distance further that’s great.

CTC will continue to monitor information and data provided by the State of Ohio and other health organizations.  At this time CTC is not resuming the monthly socials or post training gatherings.  While we aim to remain physically distant, we strive to remain socially connected.  These activities will be evaluated at a later date. 

Safe training Tips to Consider:

  • Assume you or others may be asymptomatic.
  • Cover your coughs/sneeze:  if you have to sneeze, cough, blow your nose, etc. drop back and ensure that no one is nearby and sneeze into your elbow.
  • Perform training activities in small groups of 3-5 people. 
  • Attempt to “checker board” or alternate spacing rather than directly behind one another. 
  • Don’t share water/nutrition
