When will the rolldowns begin?

The rolldown place allocations normally start a few weeks after last quailficaiton date or, after the date which pre-qualified competitors from the current season have to register their intent to qualify. There is no need to contact the Team Manager or Age Group Coordinator to ask when these will begin. We understand competitors need to make plans for the forthcoming season and we will endeavour to begin the rolldowns as soon as possible.

How do I register my intent?

You can find out how to register your intent via our “how to qualify” page which outlines the process step by step. 

You can also click on this link to go directly to the GB Age Group ITU and ETU event pages.

I can't register my intent to qualify

Firstly, are you a member of British Triathlon and, do you have the minimum of a Core or Ultimate membership? ?

Secondly, are youmoving up an age group next year and, have you checked or your name in your new age group?

Thirdly, have you already registered and have forgotton you have done so? If you check in your age group further down the event page, is your name already on the list of those who have registered their intent to qualify?

How do I pre-qualify?

People taking part in the current ITU / ETU championships may be eligeable to quailfy for the following years championships if they finish in a certain position.

I think my bike/equipment/uniform might be illegal, where can I find out more?

Can I use the evidence from a race I've just done to qualify for an ITU / ETU race?

Sprint and standard duathlon and triathlon have specific qualifying races so unfortunatly you wouldn't be able to use your own race evidence. Aquabike, aquathlon, middle distance triathlon and duathlon and, long distance duathlon and triathlon need you to add your own race results as evidence to qualify. Please follow the guidelines on each individual event webpage. If you have something which you think might be ok but are not sure, please contact the team manaegr (email is at the top of each webpage) and check with them.

I cannot compete, do I have to notify anybody to withdraw?

Yes. Please notify your team manager and the age-group team as soon as possible in writing via email. Your team manager’s email address can be found within the championship registration page for your event and/or within your team information emails. It is important that you notify as soon as possible – in many cases your place can then be offered to another athlete.
