When will I receive my membership card?
Since March 2019 we have changed our policy on membership cards and you will now need to opt-in to receive the traditional plastic card that you may have received in previous years. New and renewing members will now default to a digital membership, which can be shown at registration direct from a mobile phone (screenshot or show the relevant page within your online membership account).
For NEW and NON-DIRECT DEBIT renewing members, you will be able to opt-in to receiving a plastic membership card during the purchase process. Those on DIRECT DEBIT will need to login to their online membership account and select 'Update Direct Debit Details' within the 'Manage Profile' section PRIOR TO their Direct Debit renewal in order to opt-in to receiving a card.
Plastic membership cards are normally sent out within 14 working days of joining or renewing. If you do not receive your plastic membership card, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for a replacement. If you wish to receive a plastic card after this point, you can purchase one for £5 by calling British Triathlon Membership Services on 01509 226153.
Please note that your digital membership card is valid in the same way as your previous plastic card and you can access this as an electronic / PDF membership card within your membership account at any time (see 'My Profile'). If you upload an image within your account the image will show on your electronic membership card. You can either print off the electronic card or show it from a smart device.
