Guide to the costs of Age-Group Triathlon
Age Group Triathlon is a self-funded sport. Whilst athletes are able to seek sponsorship from local companies and organisation to contribute to their training and racing costs, for the most part, athletes cover the cost themselves.
Below we have listed the anticipated costs that athletes should factor in when competing for the Age-Group team internationally.
This can vary from £50-£400 depending on the event:
- ETU Sprint/Standard: £100-£150
- ITU Sprint/Standard: £250-£320
- Long/Middle distance: £200-500
- Aquathlon: £60-110
- Cross: £60-110
International Race Fee
The International Race Fee is £20 and is specifically in place to cover the costs and expenses incurred by the Age Group Team managers who travel to events to give the necessary support to the Age Group teams competing in international championships.
Please note, if athletes are able to compete in more than one event as part of the same championships the fee will only be charged once for that championship event.
All athletes must compete in the official British Triathlon Age-Group trisuits. These range between £120-£165 depending on the printing option and style you go for.
All other items are optional and there is no requirement to purchase them. The full range can be found HERE.
Travel and Accommodation
Athletes are required to book their own travel and accommodation. This can be through our official partner Nirvana Europe, or this can be booked via other providers. This is completely down to the athlete. We’d recommend either staying in the Team Hotel or very close to it to make the most of the team atmosphere. More information on travel packages can be found here.
We recommend you purchase appropriate insurance to cover you whilst travelling, racing and training abroad. This cost can vary depending on provider. Age Group athletes gain a 20% discount from Yellow Jersey insurance when they qualify for the team.
In order to be eligible to compete, it is an athletes responsibility to ensure their Home Nation membership is up to date. Membership costs vary between £36-85 depending on the package you opt for. Find out more about membership here.
