In March 2019, British Triathlon membership adopted a three-tier system in order to cater for those racing and competing, those training and those participants at the very beginning of their journey.
There is, however, another group that we’d like to offer support to. Those who are currently not active in swim, bike and run. Therefore, alongside Ultimate, Core and Essential memberships, we are introducing the Supporter membership tier.
A Supporter membership is for fans or supporters of the sport or for those who no longer compete but would like to stay connected to the sport.
The Supporter membership is £15 per year and includes our monthly newsletter, limited partner benefits, access to the membership hub and exclusive content, competitions, exclusive ticket offers and a membership card.
This membership tier is perfect to any non-participating fans of swim, bike and run, retired athletes and volunteers, temporarily inactive athletes such as those suffering long-term injuries, the family and friends of athletes and participants and individuals who are looking to dip their toe into the world of multisport.
Head of Membership at British Triathlon, Emma Hadley said: “Whether you’re a serious athlete, a casual participant or a side-line supporter, you’re a crucial part of the swim, bike and run community.
“The Supporter membership recognises the dedicated volunteers, retired athletes and family members who are a huge part of our multisport family and offer a huge support to our athletes and coaches. Expanding our membership tiers to cater for the non-participating fans of multisport is an important step in facilitating the growth of our sport.”
By becoming a Supporter member, you will be helping to campaign for investment into grassroots triathlon, delivering British Triathlon's Clean Sport programme, implementing safe operating practices for over 1,200 permitted events every year, providing world-class events for members and participants and contributing much more to the growth of the sport.
