It gives me great pleasure to announce the East Midlands Team for 2022. The athletes selected will be competing in the Inter Regional Championships (IRC’s) in August this year at Roker Beach in Sunderland.
This is an exciting opportunity for youngsters between the ages of 11-14 years from across all the regions in Great Britain, as they take their first steps into competitive triathlon racing. Over 50% of the current GBR pathway athletes also started their journeys within their regional teams over the years at these events.

The event provides a full weekend of racing with heats and finals on the Saturday (aquathlon’s for TS2 and triathlons for TS3), and the excitement of mixed team triathlon relays on the Sunday (all age groups). If this isn’t an event you considered applying for, or you were unsuccessful this year, please don’t hesitate to contact us when the application window reopens in 2023.
It goes without saying that I offer my sincere congratulation to those athletes who have been successful in the application to be part of the IRC Team representing the East Midlands. I look forward to getting to know you more over the next few weeks.
As always, there are always some athletes who were not successful and it was difficult to decide especially in the TS3 age group who were all very close. Please do not let this deter you from you enjoyment and participation in the sport, or from applying again in the future.
