Designated COVID-19 Safety Officer for the event is Nick Clark.
Audax won't be business as usual this year due to COVID-19 pandemic hence it is very important you stick to the guidelines from Audax UK and follow the behaviour code. By participating in the ride, you're explicitly agreeing that you have read the guidelines and behaviour code and will adhere to them.
In addition to this, the Event Organiser, COVID Safety Officer and Stewards will also require you to follow certain rules on the day as part of the risk mitigation strategy which includes designated areas & one-way systems. To avoid riders congregating at the control, all riders will be allocated specific start times which can be ±30min around the declared start time for the event (those srtarting late won't be disadvantaged!). Riders will not be allowed to enter the control until 10min before the allocated start time hence, please plan your arrival accordingly. Please note that all attendee details that may be required for the UK Government’s ‘Test and Trace’ system will be retained for the required time period.
DO NOT leave home if you, or someone you live with, has symptoms of COVID-19. This also applies to those who have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test & Trace. You are strongly advised to comply with public health restrictions and avoid high risk behaviour outside the event setting to reduce the risk to fellow participants when you join the ride. Wear a mask and maintain 2m social distancing at all times. Carry with you alcohol hand sanitiser (minimum 70%) / alcohol wipes and mask, stored in a protective pouch, to meet your personal needs. Frequently sanitise your hands (NHS guidelines for hand hygiene) using alcohol gel or soap/water, particularly before and after handling food and using the facilities.

We have carried out COVID-19 Risk Assessment for the event based on guidelines from AudaxUK to mitigate risks in every possible way however as the rider, you must also play your part in reducing the risk of transmission to the event organisers, helpers, fellow riders and general public. Safety is everyone’s responsibility !
