To qualify athletes are need to finish a qualification race in a time which is within 115% of the winner in their age group.

Places will be offered automatically to the 4 highest placed athletes per age group who finished within 115% of the winner of their age-group and, that have not already qualified at a previous race. This includes athletes moving up an age group during the Championship year.

Any athlete finishing within the 4 highest places as outlined above but outside 115% of the winner of their age-group will only be offered a place at the Team Manager’s discretion.
Any athlete finishing outside the automatic places but inside 115% of the winner of their age-group may still be able to qualify with a rolldown place. Details of rolldown places can be found here

After each qualifying race the Team Manager will go through the results and allocate the places and rolldown % to all athletes who took part. This may take up to 2 weeks. Successful athletes will be notified of their qualification by email.

Athletes who have a % next to their name after the qualification race may be eligeable for a rollodwn place. These will start to be issued approximatly 1 month after the final qualifying race.

**Please Note: As the qualification races take place in the year preceding the Championships, qualification is based on your finishing time compared to those athletes who will be in your age group the year of the Championships. 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.
