The reconfiguration of the calendar maintains the main competition venues planned, with the exception of triathlon events in A Coruña and Castelldefels, postponed to 2021 at the request of the venues themselves. Likewise, in the responsible return to the competition, FETRI prioritizes the largest Individual and Club Championships, which will occupy longer days and oblige not to carry out some events, always with the aim of benefiting athletes and clubs to complete the season with meaning and order.
The National Duathlon League remains unchanged to the expectation of the pending days, and in case it cannot be held due to a change in the health situation, it would end with the results of the Spanish Duathlon Championship for Clubs and Mixed Relay held in Alcobendas . For its part, the National Triathlon League is proposed with six days that are detailed below. The 2020 National Club Ranking will be modified to adapt it to the final situation of the calendar, always under the premise of half plus one of the Championships that are held.
Duathlon and Cros Triathlon, and Spanish Sprint Triathlon Championship
The Spanish Cros Triathlon and Duathlon Championship will be the first competition in the resumption of the calendar, on July 25 and 26 in Almazán, Soria. The wide and natural setting of the town of Soria allows us to guarantee, together with the specifications applicable to the championships that you can consult here (athlete's guide) and it is an ideal framework for the disciplines and for the safe celebration of the event, in which capacity will be controlled in the different areas, and security measures and protocols will be implemented depending on the time of the day.

In order to promote the safety of all those involved in the events, in the face of the Spanish Sprint Triathlon Championship in Pontevedra, the criteria for participation in elite and sub23, junior and cadet are modified, reducing the outputs to 75 athletes (valuing expand the starting list in case of exceeding the junior category limit)
Likewise, the participation of the best positioned teams in the National Club Ranking is strengthened by modifying the elite participation criteria; and they are modified for the cadet category, establishing qualifying series on the morning of Saturday, August 22, and a direct final in the afternoon, with a maximum of 50 athletes. During the same day the junior and elite competitions will take place, being reserved on Sunday August 23 for Age Groups and Paratriathlon.

The main objective of these measures is to strengthen the participation of the member teams in the Leagues.
Following the same criteria, in the face of the Spanish Triathlon championships for Clubs and Super Sprint for Clubs in Águilas, various aspects of what was originally planned are modified.
The first day, Saturday October 10, will take place the Club Championship, and the second, Sunday October 11, the Super Sprint by Clubs.
On Saturday there will be two series for each of the leagues, with five athletes from each club in each of the series. The result will be based on the sum of the points achieved by the athletes.
In First and Second Division, lineups between 8 and 10 athletes may be presented, and Third, only six triathletes.
In the Super Sprint by Clubs on Sunday there will be three series of 30 athletes each, with the best ten of each series going to the Final. A round for First and Second is eliminated, due to the impossibility of fitting the schedule in the new configuration.
In the Spanish Triathlon Championship for Relay in Roquetas de Mar, to be held on October 19, as in the Duathlon Championship for Relay in Avilés, on November 15, in case the preventive plan COVID-19 is applied, in The men's and women's competitions would be held two times, with a maximum of 30 or 31 League teams in the first, and a maximum of 50 Open teams in the second, with teams A by club ranking, B, C, etc.
