January will see your favourite Adventure Event return to Effingham KGV with Social Distance measures in place! Effingham has been very supportive to host our events during these restricted times.
27th December: TIER 4 and High Risk Evaluation – Cancellation
I have made the decision to cancel this event on the 3rd January. There is widespread covid with no sign of reducing and the event is in the highest Tier 4. Rules indicate that outdoor sports such as golf and tennis can continue in Tier 4, but I can’t quite justify my event, which is socially distanced and spread out to take place on this occasion. I am therefore going to refund all those who are entered and close entries to everyone else. I am going to hold off organising our next Adventure Event. Thanks and I hope you will understand.
23rd December: I can’t keep up with these daily adjustments. With the widening of the Tier 4 area to all of the South East today, it is looking highly likely that this event is not going to be able to go ahead on 3rd January. If you don’t mind, I will hold fire at the moment and leave entries open until after Christmas, once I can be sure. If I can’t I will refund all those entered on the 31st December. I’m sorry.
22nd December: Effingham is in Tier 4 ‘Stay at Home’ where events are non-essential. Tiers are being adjusted on 30th December, 4 days before the event and after the Christmas period. Since I am offering 100% refund on entries. I am going to hold off until I can be sure this event is not allowed to go ahead. I know how much you need your early January events after the Christmas period. Let’s wait and see. I may have to cap numbers if everyone holds off entering to the last minute. Stay safe and have a nice Christmas and New Year, we look forward to seeing you in the New Year! Adam
19th December Update 22:00: I also watched what Boris had to say! I will have to review this new situation. I don’t think anyone saw a Tier 4 coming into play of a 3 Tier system so soon after Wednesday’s announcement. I’m going to hold fire, but to say I am aware.
18th December Update: Following the 16th December national Government update on the Tier system, Effingham, part of Guildford is now up in Tier 3. In Tier 3, outdoor social distanced events are still able to take place and Tri-Adventure has exclusive use of the KGV field and will operate HQ from the new gazebo with access to toilets. Being in Tier 3, a requirement is that the event can only accept participants who also reside in Tier 3, ie we can’t allow Tier 2. I will be dropping an email to all those currently signed up with this development and my Covid-19 Policy, which I have made clear throughout. We look forward to seeing many of you getting your 2021s to a fab start! See you there, Adam
There is 100% Entry Fee Refund should Covid-19 be the cause of a Cancellation or someone not be able to take part.
Event Date: Sunday 3rd January.
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.
ENTRIES CLOSED due to Covid

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.
HQ Location: Effingham Village Hall, Browns Lane, Effingham Leatherhead, Surrey, KT24 5ND
Arriving by Train: Effingham Junction is closest, 2 miles or so North of the venue.
