Aquathlon is the next multisport in our guide to representing the Great Britain Age-Group Team with the combination of swim and run offering age group athletes a chance to represent their country and be crowned British champion in 2022.
The GB Age-Group Team offers all Home Nation members a unique opportunity to compete at World and European Championships in triathlon, duathlon, aquathlon, aquabike, winter triathlon, cross triathlon and cross duathlon.
The format of aquathlon can vary but age group events are usually raced over the swim-run format with a 1km swim followed by a 5km run. Distances do, however, differ depending on the event with the 2022 British Aquathlon Championships at Eton Dorney covering a 750m swim and then a 5km run.
Qualifying to represent the GB Age-Group Team in aquathlon is different to other multisports as there are no qualifying events, with athletes asked to submit a best past performance in a race that meets the standard set out on the relevant championship event registration page.
There is the opportunity for age group athletes to be crowned British Aquathlon Champion in 2022 after the British Aquathlon Championships returned in 2021. Arctic One’s Tri & Para-Tri Festival will host the 2022 British Aquathlon Championships on Saturday 16 July at Dorney Lake.
The GB Age-Group Team returned home from the 2021 World Triathlon Aquathlon Championships in Spain with 19 medals, including golds for Ben Rawlins (M20-24), Amy Walker (F30-34), Louise Coxson (F45-49) and Neil Arundel (M65-69).
