British Triathlon & the Home Nations Major Events Bidding Process Launches.
British Triathlon along with Triathlon England & Welsh Triathlon are delighted to announce the opening of the 2019 Major Event bidding process and invite event organisers in England, Scotland and Wales to bid for the unique opportunity to host British Championships, Triathlon England Championships, Welsh Triathlon Championships & Great Britain Age-Group Team Qualifiers.
British Triathlon and the Home Nations annually promote a programme of Age-Group Major Events, consisting of British and National Championships as well as GB Age-Group Team Qualification events along with Elite and Paratriathlon racing opportunities.
British Triathlon and the Home Nations invite Event Organisers of all sizes who permit their events through the Home Nation Associations, to consider submitting bids to host these events. The guidance documents attached below outline the bidding process.
This year, the bidding process has changed for Championships and Qualifiers. Event Organisers are invited to submit their event to hold one of the available major events. Event Organisers are not required to identify which major event they are bidding for. This change has been made to improve the event calendar and to broaden the range of opportunities for Event Organisers. British Triathlon will review all submissions and appoint major events accordingly.
If you wish to host an Elite or Paratriathlon event, please refer to the accompanying Elite & Paratriathlon Bidding Guidance document.
