Age Group

The event I want to use as race evidence doesn't have 5 year age bands?

If you are registerig your intent to qualify for Aquathlon, Aquabike, Cross Triathlon and Duathlon, Sprint and Standard Duathlon, Middle or Long Triathlon and Middle or Long Duathlon, you need to register your intent to qualify by adding race evidence. One stipulation of the race evidence you need to submit is that the results must be split into 5 years age categories. This is to align the results with current ETU and ITU events and is also to compare your performance to those in your age group. You may use age groups other than those in 5 year bands however you should 1) check this is ok with the Team Manager; 2) the results should be freely avaliable on-line.

What if all the qualification places are not filled?

An athlete who finishes outside of the outlined qualification criteria will not be eligible for qualification regardless of spaces available. 

How many qualification places are there?

National Federations can enter a maximum of 20 athletes per age-group into an international Championship. 

How do I find the ITU and ETU websites?

The International Triathlon Union Website can be found here. The European Triathlon Union Website can be found here

Where can I find the competition rules for Age-Group Championships?

Age-Group Championships follow the ITU Competition rules which can be found here. The ETU also have a separate Age-Group section which can be found here.  British Triathlon rules can ber found here.

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.
