For further information on how to qualify and view a step-by-step guide on how to register please click here.
Please note, to register for this event you will need your performance details on hand to complete your submission.
Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email and will be added to the registration list below. Please ensure that your registration has been successful by checking the registration list below. Please check this before the relevant registration deadline as we are not able to make changes after each registration deadline has closed. We are not able to let people register after the final registration has passed.
There are no specific qualifying races for the ETU Aqua Bike European Championships. Applicants will be expected to supply evidence of their best Aqua Bike, Middle or Long Distance Triathlon performance at an event achieved between Oct 2017 and the final registration deadline of 29th March 2019. Please note if an Age-Group becomes oversubscribed with eligible athletes then results achieved in the previous 12 months will supersede older results. To be eligible for a qualifying place all athletes will be required to have completed their nominated race within 120% of the winner of their age group.
Aqua bike events need to have the minimum distances of 1500m swim and 50-mile bike to be eligible for qualification.
You can also submit a DNF Long/Middle Distance Triathlon result in which chip timing shows evidence of your swim and bike times without the run.
If you have neither competed in an Aqua bike, Middle Distance or Long Distance Triathlon competition, we shall accept results from two separate events. E.g. 50 + mile TT/Sportive on the bike, and a swimming/triathlon result including a 1500m (minimum) swim time. When submitting your performance, you should enter just one of these results. You will then need to injclude the second within the supporting informaiton section.
Athletes will be required to submit performances providing the following information:
Race name and race date
Finish time and finish position
Winner of Age-Groups time
Link to the online results
Please note that you will be unable to complete your submission if you do not provide ALL the above information.
If you improve your best performance before the final registration deadline and would like to update the result, you will need to get in contact with the Age-Group team: email@example.com. Updating your result is free of charge.
The registration deadlines are as follows:
16th November 2018
11th January 2019
29th March 2019
Places will be awarded after each registration deadline. Please note, if we have 20 athletes that meet the criteria after the first regsitration deadline, all 20 places may be allocated at this point.
In order to be eligible to qualify and compete in this event you must be 18 on the 31st December 2019. Please do not register your interest if you will not meet this age limit, as you will be unable to qualify and compete in the championship.
If you are moving up an age group in 2019, then your qualification will be based on where your finishing time would have placed you in the age-group category you will be racing for in 2019. Please see point 8.3 in the Terms and Conditions.
At a European level, athletes must now finish within the top 10 places in their age group, as well as being one of the first three Great Britain athletes to finish at the 2018 European Championships to then pre-qualify for the 2019 Championships.
Further details regarding pre-qualification can be found within our pre-qualification policy.
Allocation of Places
There are 20 places available in each age group. As many as all 20 places can be awarded during the first selection phase if sufficient numbers apply and meet the qualification criteria. The remaining selection phases will allocate any remaining places.
If more than 20 athletes qualify in an age-group then after places are allocated as per results from within 12 months the remaining athletes will be given a rolldown percentage, where relevant, based on the performance result they submitted at the time of registration and may be eligible for a rolldown place.
Allocation of places will be awarded following the 3 registration deadlines outlined in the section above. We endeavour to complete this process and notify athletes within 2 weeks of the deadline. Qualified athletes will be notified by e-mail and will also be marked with a 'Q' next to their name in the registered athletes list below.
If you believe you have qualified and your name does not have a Q next to it on the registration list and you have not received an email informing you of your selection within two weeks of the final qualification deadline, please contact the Team Manager or Age-Group Administrator to determine why. All Qs and rolldown percentages are inputted on to the website manually so sometimes errors can occur. We encourage athletes to check their status regularly especially within two weeks of each qualifier and to let us know if you see a mistake. Once the two weeks have passed after the final qualifier we may be in the position to offer rolldown places for those eligible and awaiting them. Once rolldown places have been offered we cannot guarantee that places will be available for athletes that did not make us aware of their Q not showing prior to this.
Entries for this event are processed via British Triathlon. If you have qualified, you will receive an email informing you of relevant payment dates and how to proceed with the payment
