Woo hoo...dust off the cobwebs, run off the mince pies & bring on the race season!
The 2019 Junior Race Series website is now live and will be updated throughout the season!
Yorkshire 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.
The individual league is open to those from 8 to 16 years of age (age as of 31 December 2019). Every race is open to all levels of ability no matter what your background and are a fun way to enter the sport of triathlon.
To compete for series points this year, in line with other regions, you must be a British Triathlon Home Nation member and have Yorkshire as your registered region.
To count towards the Yorkshire Junior Race Series individual league and end of season awards you must either live within the Yorkshire area or be a current member of a Yorkshire 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.
There are five age classifications based on year of birth. Age for each group are as of 31st December 2019:
- TriStar Starts: 8 years old (born 2011)
- TriStar 1: 9-10 years old (born 2009 / 2010)
- TriStar 2: 11-12 years old (born 2007 / 2008)
- TriStar 3: 13-14 years old (born 2005 / 2006)
- Youth: 15-16 years old (born 2003 / 2004)
Overall positions in the series will be based on the best 5 event results from across the series. In addition there will be prizes for the highest accumulated points across all events in the series.
