September will see a return of your favorite Adventure Events again in Effingham with the new Social Distance measures in place! Why are we heading back to Effingham in September? See below…
Again, it will be a different map to the July and August Event.
Update Wednesday 23rd September:
All good for Sunday! See you there. We have just over 100 signed up so far. The reason I have not actively promoted this Adventure event is that we have limited parking due to the damp weather, Rugby and Football starting back and KGV car park remaining closed. There will be limited car parking at the school, otherwise, it is on the surrounding streets, not on Browns Lane. Please allow time, and remember it is a window start between 08:30 and 10am, so no need to stress!
Update Monday 21st September:
All plans are in place to go ahead on Sunday. I will be monitoring any new guidelines or measures announced by the Prime Ministers’ in his key speech on Tuesday 22nd September. With the return of schools and sports clubs, the demand for the Effingham Facilities will be higher than previously seen at the venue. Parking is a key issue as we will not have access to Browns Field due to the Autumnious weather, the hall car park will also remain closed due to the threat of travelers. So, please allow plenty of time to arrive and find somewhere to park on the streets in and around Effingham, just not on Browns Lane due to the congestion this causes for local residents. The capacity of this event has been limited due to the parking situation/availability.
There is 100% Entry Fee Refund should Covid-19 be the cause of a Cancellation.
Event Date: Sunday 27th September.
Registration open from 07:30am for all events. Start window for individuals/pairs from 08:30am to 10am. Please can the Long Course be off earlier. There will be no mass start!
ADJUSTMENTS I AM MAKING DUE TO CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES:
Expect updates as we approach the event day, this event will be similar to the July and August Event.
Below are the measure/changes I will be putting in place for this event to protect the health of competitors and the Tri-Adventure staff, and by no means are there to impact on the enjoyment of the event.

Why are we returning to Effingham again in September? It has been a challenge to secure venues that first of all have enough space to deliver a socially distanced event, suitable area for transition and then also has enough parking capacity. Parking becomes a challenge as we approach the Autumn months with the risk of now saturated ground being damaged by vehicle use. Venues are not responding to the inquiries I am making or are not accepting any external hires at this moment in time. So, to continue to deliver our monthly events, I have booked another event at Effingham and will again have a different map to previous months.
Email: Sent out to competitors will be linked here.
Below is a clickable map of the venue and Parking. It looks as though Plan A will not be possible, Plan B may be in play, alternative is to park on the surrounding streets, but on on Brown’s Lane please.
