Qualifying from the qualifying race

  • To qualify from the qualifying race athletes need to finish the qualification race in a time which is within 115% of the winner in their age group. This includes athletes moving up an age group during the Championship year.
  • Qualifying 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
  • 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.
  • Results will be added to this webpage the evening of the race so athletes will find out straight away if they ave qualified for the team. 
  • Any athlete finishing outside the automatic places but inside 110% of the winner of their age-group will be considered for a rolldown place from the qualifying race. These athletes will be considered first before athletes who submit a race result after each registration cut off date.

 

Qualifying through submitting a race result

Registration cut off dates:

Q1-5pm Friday the 7th October 2022

Q2-5pm Friday the TBC 2023 once the race date has been confirmed

  • Athletes may register with a race result after the 23rd August 2022.
  • Athletes with a finishing percentage of 111% to 115% will be considered alongside those athletes who register with a race result after each registration cut off date.
  • See below for qualifying criteria when registering with a race result

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

  • Race name
  • Race date
  • Athlete finish time
  • Winner of age-groups finish time
  • Link to online results

Race Qualification Criteria

  • Event must have been chip timed.
  • Results must be from October 2021 onwards, older results will not be accepted.
  • Results must be in 5 or 10 year age group bands.
  • Results must be from sprint or super-sprint triathlons
  • Results can be from races that are either draft legal or draft illegal. The Championship race will be not be draft legal.
  • Courses must have had an open water swim, a road or tarmac bike course and a run on road, tarmac or a path course. 
  • Results need to be within 115% of the winner of you age group. If you move up an age group, use the time from the winner of the age group you are moving into. 
  • To work out your % of time behind the winner of your age group you could use a Time Percentage Calculator like the one found here. 
  • Race results with 99 people or less in the results (including DNS and DNF) will be considered at the third registration cut-off date.
  • If more than one competitor has a result of 100%, the most competitive result will be selected by the team manager. This may be the fastest time or the race with the most competitors in the affected age group depending on the race result used. The Team Managers decision is final. 

**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 2023, 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 2023. 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.

Pre-Qualification

To Pre-Qualify for the 2023 World Triathlon World Championship race, athletes must finish in the top 15 places in their age group and be one of the first three British athletes to finish in the 2022 World Triathlon World Championship race.  

Athletes must also confirm their intent to take up their Pre-Qualified place in writing by the deadline date. 

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. This means that at the first registration cut off date, all the places may be allocated in each age group.
  • 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 use a Hotmail, outlook or work email address please check your junkmail, we find these email addresses often send our emails to the junkmail inbox.
  • 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.  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. First though please check that you have not moved up an age group during the championship year.
