Fees and Entry
The application fee to register for an event is £10 and is non-refundable.
Qualified athletes may be required to pay a £20 International Race Fee in addition to the race entry fee. British Triathlon will provide as much support in the way of team managers, bike mechanics and sport massage therapists as the team size will allow. All athletes will be expected to fund their own travel and accommodation.
The race entry fee is decided by the local organising committee (LOC) and will have to be paid via British Triathlon or directly to the LOC depending on the Championship event. The race entry fee will be set in local currency and the race entry fee in pounds will therefore be subject to currency fluctuations.
The race entry fee will be due to British Triathlon as announced on the ‘Event' page of the website. All applicants who have been allocated a place will see a ‘Q’ next to their name on the website. As soon as the payment system opens, athletes can log on and pay their race entry fee in GPB. British Triathlon will also send qualified athletes an email reminder and announce the deadline of payment.
Once the entry fee and international race fee has been paid and an athlete needs to withdraw, only the race entry fee can be refunded if British Triathlon has not yet paid their fees to the championship organisers.
Athletes will not be penalized or black marked for withdrawing. It is understandable that circumstances change. We do however ask that you inform British Triathlon in writing as soon as possible.
Athletes wishing to apply after the closing date for applications will not be accepted.
Your inclusion in any GB Age-Group Team can be withdrawn should you breach any British Triathlon guidelines or policies.
