Intention to Qualify
To be eligible for qualification register your intent to qualify by 5pm on the Friday before the registration deadline.
Click the blue 'Register' button on this page and log in with your Home Nation membership number and password. Click here for help.
Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email and will be added to the registration list below.
Check your registration has been successful by checking the registration list below before the deadline. (If you do not appear, check if you are moving up into another age group for the Championship year.)
No registrations will be accepted after the final registration time and date have passed. Athletes who register after 5pm on the deadline for a qualification race but then compete in that race will not be considered eligible for qualification from that race and their registration will only cover the remaining races.
5pm on the Friday 24th January 2020 is the first registration cut off date. After this date all 20 places per age group may be issued. The other two cut off dates are to allocate the remainng slots per age group.
There are no specific qualifying races for the ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships.
Applicants will be expected to supply evidence of their best Cross Triathlon performance at an event achieved between January 2019 to the final registration deadline of Friday 8th May 2020. 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 115% of the winner of their age group including athletes moving up into their age group during the race year.
Athletes will be required to submit performances providing the following information:
Please note that you will be unable to complete your submission if you do not provide ALL the above information.
The event must have chip timing and produce the results into 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: email@example.com. Updating your result is free of charge.
The registration deadlines are as follows:
- 24th January 2020, 5pm - as many of the 20 places per age group will be issued
- 20th March 2020, 5pm - remaining places issued per age group
- 8th May 2020, 5pm - remaining places issued per age group
Any athlete inside 115% of the winner of their age-group that has not qualified due to limited spaces may still be able to qualify with a rolldown place. Details of rolldown places can be found here.
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.

There are 20 places available in each age group.
All 20 places could be awarded during the first selection phase if enough athletes 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. This may take up to two weeks afetr 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.
