IRC & Hetton Relays Selection Information
2019 will again see two great opportunities for Tristar 2 & 3 athletes to race as part of a Scottish team competing against other regions from around the UK. The Inter Regional Championships and Hetton Tristar Relays are two separate racing opportunities, more information on each event can be found below.
Inter Regional Championships
The British Triathlon Inter Regional Championships is an annual event, bringing together triathletes from across the UK.
Scotland sends a team of 12 athletes, three male and three female in two age groups (Tristar 2 & 3) who compete against other regions from within the UK.
The 2019 Inter Regional Championships will take place at Mallory Park, Leicestershire in September. The event will be part of the British Triathlon U20’s Festival, which will include the Inter Regional Championships for Tristars 2 and 3 as well as elite youth and junior races.
Athletes accepting a place on the team are also expected to travel to and from the event as part of the team. Independent travel with parents is discouraged. Travelling athletes will be expected to make a financial contribution, the costs of which will be confirmed by the Development Manager following selection at the team training day.
Hetton Lyons Tristar Relays
This is an additional race opportunity for Tristars 2 & 3. The Hetton Lyons Tristar Relays will take place at Hetton Lyons in July 2019 and will be an opportunity for athletes from Scotland to race against athletes from across the UK over the exciting mixed team relay format.
Triathlon Scotland will be entering up to four teams in the Tristar relays, the number of teams will depend on both race starts allocated to Triathlon Scotland and athlete availability.
For this race athletes are expected to get themselves to the race. Triathlon Scotland will provide coaching support at the race and cover the entry fee.
