Register For This Event

Qualification

Athletes who were in the 2021 team at the time the team was withdrawn from the Championships were able to register to take up their 2022 PQ place in the team by 5pm Friday the 27th of August 2021.

Any athletes who had a PQ from the 2021 team but did not register by the date above have relinquished their PQ and need to register with a race result to be considered for the team.

IMPORTANT NOTE

Because the 2021 Championships were cancelled there will be less than 20 places in each age group available. Please keep this in mind when you register for the 2022 Championships.

To check this, scroll the page down and check the number of people in your age group. Age groups are limited to 20. There can be more than 20 people who register per age group but only 20 can be allocated a Q to qualify for the team. If there are more than 20 people with a Q in your age group, please consider that your chance of qualifying for the 2022 team may be reduced although when someone withdraws, we will roll down their place to the athletes with the next fastest time.

  • Places are allocated after registration cut off dates in order of fastest result to slowest result. This may take 2 weeks.

  • After the final registration date, the remaining places will be allocated and if any athletes then withdraw the remaining place will be allocated by rolldown places. 

  • Qualified athletes will be notified by e-mail and will be marked with a 'Q' next to their name in the registered athletes list. This can take up to 2 weeks after the qualifying race. Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4 and Q are all qualifying statuses.
