Junior Inter-Regional Championship Qualification

For those taking part in the West Midlands Triathlon series 2014, I wanted to notify you of the process for qualification onto the Inter Regional Championship Team (IRC) for 2014.

This year we will be using two qualification races. These will be:

  1. Sandwell Open Water Triathlon - Sunday 29th June.
  2. Human Race, supertri children's race - Sunday 6th July.

Please note: 13 - 14 years (Tristar 3) MUST ENTER THE HIGH PERFORMANCE DRAFTING Triathlon 400m Swim, 10.6km Bike, 2.5km Run.
(There is only one [non-drafting race] for TS2.)

Points will be awarded in a similar way to the West Midlands Series - it is expected that anyone wishing to be considered will enter and race at both of these events. However, utilising two events, will allow for individual considerations to be made, should there be an incident to a potential qualifier during one of the races (e.g. mechanical failure etc). In which case, performance at one qualification race, in conjunction with performance within the series, to date, will be considered.

The team selected will be notified as soon as possible following the second event. Three (+ 1 reserve) from each age group will be selected.

Just as a reminder, the IRC is for age groups TS2 and TS3.

The aim of the selection process is to ensure the WM takes the best possible team to the IRCs in 2014.

The IRC (National Final) event is; Friday 22nd August at Holme Pierrepoint, Nottingham.
