East Midlands IRC Selection Trials

Published:

Are you ages 11-14 years? Do you want to represent the East Midlands in the Inter Regional Championships?

The East Midlands IRC Selection Trials for 2022 will be separate from the East Midlands Juniors Race Series.  The athletes for the IRC selections Trials will be selected using a similar format to BTF Regional academy trials: swim & run times. The selection days will be an aquathlon, followed by additional training days to incorporate bike ability.

Before applying, please ensure that you and your child/ren are available for the entire IRC weekend -  20th /21st August 2022. The venue is Roker Beach in Sunderland and is part of the British Triathlon Grand Final Event. Unfortunately transport and accommodation are not provided, and therefore you will be required to make your own plans.

As in 2021, the event comprises of heats and finals (TS2 will be Aquathlon racing while TS3 will be triathlon) and a mixed team relay. Teams will be formed of 4 athletes per age group (total 16 athletes not including reserves).

All athletes must be members of home nation BTF.

To apply for selection, you can submit both swim (200m) and run (1500) times. If the times are not on Power10 or the British Swimming tables then an email from your junior/s coach to verify the submitted times will be accepted. We would also like you to detail the result of your best 3 race results from last season – these can be a mixture of single discipline (swim, bike, run) events, aquathlon, duathlon or triathlon as further evidence. Please also provide the link for these results.

Selection will be based on the results of the selection Aquathlon in May. The final team will be selected by the IRC Team Manager (Hilary Johnson) in conjunction with Jacqui Pearson (Assistant Team Manager).

Details of the selection and training day dates are being finalised as will be published as soon as possible.

All applications need to be in by the end of April.

Please send your application to: hilary.johnson@live.co.uk
