Fees and Entry

  • The application fee to register for an event is £10 and is non-refundable.  
  • Qualified athletes will pay a £20 team management fee in addition to the race entry fee. British Triathlon will provide as much support in the way of bike mechanics and masseurs as the team size will allow.  All athletes will be expected to fund their own travel and accommodation.
  • The race entry fee is to be announced by the local event organisers and will have to be paid via British Triathlon. 
  • The race entry fee will be due to British Triathlon as announced on the ‘Event' page of the website. All applicants who have been allocated a place will see a ‘Q’ next to their name on the website. As soon as the payment system opens, athletes can log on and pay their race entry fee. The team manager will also send qualified athletes an email reminder and announce the deadline of payment. 
  • Once the entry fee and team management fee has been paid and an athlete needs  to withdraw, only the entry fee can be refunded if British Triathlon has not yet paid their fees to the championship organisers.
  • Athletes wishing to apply after the closing date for applications will not be accepted.
