North East Junior Race Series 2020

Published:

List of Events for 2020

The North East is just one of ten Triathlon England regions that provide an opportunity for young people to race against each other. These races are a great starting point for those wishing to enter their first triathlon event and offer a competitive introduction to the sport with the opportunity to claim points towards the regional league standings. 

To compete for series points this year, in line with other regions, you must be a British Triathlon Home Nation member and have North East as your registered region.

To count towards the North East Junior Race Series individual league and end of season awards you must either live within the North East area or be a current member of a North East Triathlon registered club. If you are not a Home Nation Member you can still take part in any of the races, but you will not attain points towards the individual league or end of season awards.

JUNIOR MEMBERSHIP

To be entered for the North East Junior Race Series athletes must be between the ages of 8 & 16 (age as of December 31st 2020)

Thank you to all the clubs who submitted details of their Junior events for the 2020 series. We have a real range of events this year and hope that will give children and families more choice when it comes to entering. We have included 2 events from outside of our Region this year as we know many of our children already compete in those races and we wanted to provide more choice for OW events. It is great to see a mix of new events this year as well as some of the familiar and very popular events from previous series.

Like the last four years, to count in the GP scoring competitors must be a home nation members and must race a minimum of 5 races (TS1 and above) of which a minimum of 3 must be triathlons and 1 of those must be an open water race. TSS need to compete in any 5 races to qualify. 

Whilst we endeavour not to change dates, sometimes circumstances beyond the control of organisers means this may have to happen on rare occasions.

If you have any questions or queries with regard to the above info then please get in touch with our Junior Regional Coordinator Janet Robinson
