Elite Competition Information

Elite Racing

All elite races within the UK are draft legal.  Because of this, athletes wishing to participate in the series must be able to evidence they have both the skill and physical competency to race at this level.  This is the highest level of competition the UK has to offer and provides a valuable stepping stone onto Continental Cups, World Cups and WTS races. Find out details of all the exciting Senior Elite racing opportunities within Britain and how to enter here.

British Triathlon Youth and Junior Super Series

The Youth and Junior Super Series forms the backbone of British domestic racing and is now a world leading series of highly competitive events for young athletes.  Athletes wishing to race on the Series will need to qualify at their respective Home Nation Performance Assessments.  For Scottish based athletes, Triathlon Scotland have Performance Assessments in place (15th April Lochgelly).  Athletes unable to attend please read the Performance Assessments document and follow the procedure.  All of the information you need to know regarding how British Super Series roll down lists, entry codes and wait lists work can be found here shortly.

Whilst the Super Series is the pinnacle of elite racing in the UK, its also important to provide athletes with a clear pathway that allows them to gain the relevant experience to race at this level.  The BTF competition map for Juniors and Youths (links below) allows athletes to see the suggested route of development at various ages and stages of development.  The supporting explanation document (below) helps to further clarify the competition map.

The School Games Explained

The School Games is an integrated multi-sport event for the UK’s leading disabled and non-disabled young athletes of school age.  Triathlon is in the School Games in 2018 for the first time, to find out more about this please  click here.

We recognise that for Regional Youths and Juniors the competition map currently provides limited competition opportunity.  We would therefore endorse the following competitions within Scotland.
