British Triathlon Membership
You DON'T have to be a British Triathlon member to enter this event! Membership is for those who want to appear in the regional series rankings or qualify for the Yorkshire Inter Regional Championship (IRC) team, in which case each athlete must have their own British Triathlon Membership.
If you only want to race a few races or just dip your toe into triathlon, then you can still enter individual races by purchasing a day membership. For full membership when entering races, choose the entry option for British Triathlon/Home Nation Members and use your membership number. You will then get a discounted entry fee and be automatically entered into the Yorkshire Junior Race Series.
To make this event possible relies on a large number of volunteers. If you're able to help on the day it would be great if you could sign up. If you want to watch your child or children taking part, we'll sort that nearer the time by swapping who is doing what at the various times.

Entries will close at midnight on Sun 16th June. Unfortunately no refunds will be issued after that time for those withdrawing.
