How are the Welsh national championships chosen?
Welsh Triathlon National Championship events are chosen from Events organisers that submit a tender for hosting a major event.
We then work with British Triathlon and our Welsh Technical Committee to make sure events are suitable to host , and plan events alongside the major events calendar across all 3 home nations including our Welsh Triathlon Super Series to avoid any event clashes (where we can) We also have to plan that we don’t have back to back weekend racing, and try as best we can to spread the events across Wales but this really does depend on which event organiser have submitted to host a Major event.
