London Team Selection:

In each of the 8 categories the leading 5 finishers 2016 London Series will be guaranteed an invite.

The remaining 20 places with be awarded by selection panel based on a number of factors including:

  • Leading athletes who have not placed high the series (particularly applicable with Youth who are racing Super Series, but younger athletes who’d perhaps been injured or did well in duathlons but not strong swimmers).
  • The relative strength of the category – where there is lot of depth more athletes will be invited rewarding their level of performance during the season.

IRD Overview

The Inter Regional Duathlon (IRD)  exists to provide a rare representative opportunity for the top young triathletes from London and South East. It was started in 2014 by Jim Desmond (ex-London Region Junior Coordinator) who extended the invitation to Dean Painter (South East Junior Lead), and from there it has grown into a much loved regular fixture.

The match current scores (after the 2016 event) are

London 1 - South East 2
