ITU & ETU Event Qualification 2020

ITU Cozumel Swim General Pic

Rules Governing Non Qualifying Events

For long distance events, cross and winter triathlon, and aquathlons there are no specific qualification events that you will need to enter. Instead there will be a standard that you must have met to gain selection from a race that you can nominate yourself. 

You can enter and compete in more than one qualification event but you only need to register once for each Championship.

You can qualify for multiple Championships, although current ITU rules do not allow an athlete to take part in two events within a 48 hour period at the same Championships.

RULES GOVERNING QUALIFYING EVENTS

If a qualification event acts as a qualifier for more than one Championship you must register for both Championships if you intend to qualify for both. You will only be considered for selection in the events you have registered your intent for. 

Please contact orla@triathlonireland.com if you have any questions. 

Please note that further information will be added above when known.
