Guide to the costs of the Age-Group Team
The Age Group Team 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 £60-£450 depending on the event:
- European Sprint/Standard: £130-£180
- World Sprint/Standard: £250-£320
- Long/Middle distance: £200-500
- Aquathlon: £80-120
- Cross: £90-120
Athletes must pay a registration fee to register their intent to qualify which enables them to be considered for the Great Britain Age-Group Team. The registration fee which athletes pay when they register to qualify for a Championship event is £12. This covers the administration for the Age Group Team, administration for qualifying races, office space, other administration costs and bank charges among other essential items and processes.
International Race Fee
The International Race Fee (IRF) is £23 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 before, during and after events.
Please note, if athletes qualify to compete in three or more events as part of the same championships the fee will only be charged twice for that championship event.
All athletes must compete in the official GBR Age-Group trisuits. These range between £130-£175 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 the British Triathlon Official Travel Partner Nirvana Europe or, this can be booked via other providers and is the athletes choice. 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 athletes purchase comprehensive insurance to cover them whilst travelling, racing and training abroad. This cost can vary depending on provider. Age Group athletes gain a 25% discount from Yellow Jersey insurance when they qualify for the team in 2023.
Athletes are also advised to apply for a Global Health Insurance (GHIC) card to help cover medical costs.
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 £49-85 depending on the package you opt for. Find out more about membership here.
