Event Organisers

Interested in helping to create positive experiences through swim, bike, run? Join our network of permitted Event Organisers! British Triathlon offers a range of support to organisers who deliver permitted events across Britain. Organisers including clubs, charities, local authorities, education establishments and businesses can access support to deliver safe and fair events.

Why organise events?

British Triathlon supports Event Organisers to host events and provide great experiences through swim, bike, run. While we understand your desire to create outstanding experiences for participants, it’s not solely about what you can offer them; you’ll also benefit from the experience in the following ways:

  • Develop or enhance your skills – You may already have some experience in supporting, or even running events, but this is not needed! The network of support will help you to get started with your swim, bike, run event, whatever your experience.
  • Make a positive impact on your events network – As an event organiser, you will help to create positive experiences for everyone engaging. Whether they are a participant, volunteer, or event staff member, you will help to create lasting impact and memories extending beyond just the event.
  • Provide a key offering for the sport - Events represent the lifeblood of the sport, ensuring we have opportunities for entry and development within swim, bike, run. From the joy of seeing a participant cross the finish line for the first time, to providing opportunities for the stars of the future, your engagement and events are central to the growth of the sport.
  • Become a key member of our swim, bike, run family – We have a fantastic network of stakeholders already helping to grow and develop the sport. By becoming an event organiser, you can play an integral role in our community too. From technical officials, volunteers, and even fellow event organisers, there are so many opportunities for engagement and growth throughout the sport.

Why Permit With us? 

British Triathlon supports organisers to deliver safe and fair events through the provision of an event permitting and support service. A British Triathlon event permit demonstrates that an event is safe and fair, and organisers that obtain a permit can be assured that their event meets a set of national standards. 

Organisers that permit their events with British Triathlon can also access a range of support including:

  • An individual review of their events planning and delivery processes/ documentation.
  • Event promotion through the British Triathlon Event Search and regular campaigns.
  • Insurance for participants (for both members and non-members). 
  • Opportunities to host regional and national events including GB Age-Group Team Qualifiers and National Championships.
  • Guidance, templates and resources to help with planning and delivery.
  • Access to Technical and Motorcycle Officials to support on event day.
  • Access to regular webinars, providing the opportunity to hear the latest updates from British Triathlon and connect with other organisers.
  • Regular e-newsletters and access to the British Triathlon Event Organiser Network peer support group.
