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. For information on the specific pre-quaification (PQ) policies, pleae click here. You can take up your pre-qualification place by first registering your intent to qualify and then by emailing the Team Manager and stating; your name, the race you took part in, the age group you competed in, the position you finished and, by stating that you would like to accept your PQ place.
I think my bike/equipment/uniform might be illegal, where can I find out more?
Age-Group Championships follow the ITU Competition rules which can be found here.
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.
