British Triathlon Paratri Super Series

All you need to know about the Paratri Super Series in 2022

Introduction

The British Triathlon Paratri Super Series offers paratriathletes from across Britain with dedicated racing opportunities and the chance to compete against other paratriathletes on a domestic front throughout the year.

This year our Paratri Super series will be open for all disabled athletes, regardless of whether they have a classification or not.  This is to open up the racing and ensure that classification opportunities are not a barrier to competing in events.  Those athletes who are not classified will not be eligible for Super Series prizes but they will become eligible for any subsequent races if they are then classified.

Incorporated within the series are the British Paratriathlon Championships where national paratriathlon champions will be crowned at Eton Dorney in July 2022.

The races across the Super Series are a combination of Sprint and Super Sprint to ensure that as many athletes as possible can have the opportunity to race, while also testing different elements of an athlete’s skills and fitness.

To be eligible for prizes athletes must be classified; prize money will be available to the overall winner within each category in the series. The winner of each of the 12 paratriathlon categories will be awarded a prize of £300, in addition the winning PTVI athlete will also be given an equivalent award which can be paid to their guide (or shared between a number of guides who supported them during the series.)

If you are not yet classified but would like to be then please send a message to paratriathlon@britishtriathlon.org In addition you can find out more information about our classification system here.

You can find out more about how you score points in the series by visiting our Paratri Super Series Explained page.

Eligibility

To be eligible, participants must be a current British Triathlon Home Nation member. You may be asked to prove your membership when entering and registering at the individual races on the series at the request of the event organiser. Please ensure that your membership record is up to date and that all information on it is correct, entering each race with your name as it appears on your membership card.

 

Classification

The 2022 Paratri Super Series will be open to non-classified athletes with an impairment, in addition to those who hold a classification.

This is new for 2022 to open-up racing opportunities for paratriathletes to help with their development. Athletes will, however, need to have a classification in order to accumulate points in the overall Series and to be eligible to receive prize money.

A classification provides you with a sport class in which you will race against other paratriathletes who have impairments which have a similar impact on their ability to compete in triathlon.

There are six classifications:

  • PTWC - Wheelchair users
  • PTS2, PTS3, PTS4, PTS5 – ambulant classes for athletes with varying impairments
  • PTVI – athletes with total or partial visual impairments

You can find out more about classifications here.

 

Other Events

In addition to paratriathlon specific events many athletes can also take part in the hundreds of triathlon events organised across the country every weekend. If you are not sure if you will be able to take part in any event, then please contact the race organiser and explain the nature of your impairment and you will find that the vast majority of race organisers are more than happy to accommodate any special needs you may have.
