Most of the COVID-19 related restrictions have now been lifted and many organized running, hiking, swimming and riding groups have resumed their activities. Each group will have their own protocol with regards to social distancing, wearing masks before and after, sanitization of equipment and washing/disinfecting of hands. Contact the group you plan to exercise before, so that you know their requirements.

For Triathlon training and upcoming events, check with BFIT.

Gyms and fitness studios are open and operating under certain protocols. Contact your gym for details.

Upcoming Races/Events

At this time, there is little information available on the resumption of road or trail running races. In Barbados, there usually is a gap in the race calendar from mid June until mid/late August (because of vacations, Crop Over Festivities as well as higher temperatures and humidity).
With the possibility of the Covid-19 virus reappearing in Barbados after commercial flights resume in mid July, race organizers and sponsors would find it difficult to plan ahead.
