Register For This Event

Qualification

There are no specific qualifying races for the ETU Aquabike European Championships.

Applicants need to supply evidence of their best Aqua Bike, Middle or Long Distance Triathlon performance at an event achieved between July 2018 and the final registration deadline of Friday 21st February 2020

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. 
 

Qualification events

Aquabike 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 or full resulst from a Long/Middle Distance Triathlon result in which chip timing shows evidence of your swim and bike times. 

If you have neither competed in an aquabike, middle distance or long distance triathlon, you can submit results from two separate events. For example a 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 include the second within the supporting informaiton section. 

 

Qualification evidence

Athletes will be required to submit performances providing the following information:

- Race name
- Race date
- Finish time and position
- Winner of Age-Groups time
- Link to the online results
 
 
 
The event should have chip timing and results that are in age group bands.
 
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: agegroup@britishtriathlon.org. Updating your result is free of charge. 

The qualification process should be completed within 2 weeks after the registration 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. Please do not contact us to ask if you have qualified until after the 2 week deadline.

If you are moving up an age group in 2020, 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 2020. Please note that you may finish in the top four in your age group category but an athlete moving into that age group can potentially push you out of a qualifying position if their time is faster. Please see point 8.3 in the Terms and Conditions.

 

The registration deadlines are as follows: 

  1. 5pm 15th November 2020 
  2. 5pm 10th January 2020
  3. 5pm Friday 21st February 2020

In order to be eligible to qualify and compete in this event you must be 18 on the 31st December 2020. 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.

Pre-Qualification

At 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 in the 2019 European Championship to then pre-qualify for the 2020 Championships. Please contact the Team Manager to take up your PQ place

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 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.

Entry

Entries for the event are through the race organisers website here. 

Once you have qualified, we will provide you with a unique discount code to use. This code will provide you with the race entry fee of €159, if you enter the race without this code, you will not be refunded the discounted amount.

Once you have recieved your qualification email and paid for your race entry fee, you will also need to pay the £20 International Race Fee (IRF) using the button above "Pay for this event" to become a part of the GB Age Group Team. You will also need to book your own accomodation and travel and buy your GB tri-suit.

The International Race Fee is £20 and is specifically in place to cover the costs and expenses incurred by the Age Group Team Managers who volunteer to travel to events to give the necessary support to the Age Group Teams. Late IRF payments will not be accepted, you will be provided with a deadline to pay the IRF closer to the event time. 

Please note, if you compete in more than one event as part of the same championship the IRF will only be charged once for that championship event.

You must pay the £20 IRF AND the race entry fee before the deadline provided to you in your qualification confirmation email or your Q will be removed and you will not be eligible to compete for the team. (This is so we can offer the place to another person and to give as many people as possible a chance to be a part of the team.)
