Welsh Triathlon is contributing to a greener planet by making membership electronic!
We would like to inform you that Welsh Triathlon membership is going electronic.
We realised that whilst a lot of our members like receiving our blue membership boxes through the post, after a couple of days the boxes, leaflets and plastic end up being put in the bin. We are also responsible for disposal of nearly 3000 plastic cards annually. By introducing electronic membership, Welsh Triathlon will reduce its carbon footprint and the amount of plastic waste, as your membership packages will no longer come from Derby, as they do now.
What does this mean for you?
You will no longer receive a box and leaflets with your membership card. Upon purchase of your membership for the year, be it a new member or renewal, you will receive an email with a pdf copy of your membership card and a letter welcoming you to Welsh Triathlon.
You will be able to access a copy of your membership card via your ONLINE MEMBERSHIP PORTAL. When you are taking part in triathlon events, we’ve made things easier for you as you will no longer need to remember your plastic card. You can show your electronic membership card at registration via your mobile phone or tablet. If mobile technology is not your forte, you can still print off a copy of your membership card and take this with you to show at registration.
We would also encourage all of our members to upload their picture to their membership portal. This will mean on race day you will not have to take another form of photo ID
Your membership opens a host of other membership benefits including our specially negotiated (up to 40% discount) deal with HUUB. This discount is not listed on the Membership portal so you will need to click here to see how to get all your benefits.
What about Welsh Triathlon Socks?
We have been working with our membership partner, BRAV socks to make sure that our members will still receive their Welsh Triathlon socks. Members will now use their membership number to purchase either Welsh Triathlon socks.
In 2019 we have also introduced a new design, so you will be able to choose between these, our new ‘Rainbow’ socks and our Velindre socks! Why not head over to the BRAV socks website to check them out! In making membership electronic you’ll be able to choose your sock design and size, as well as have a look at the rest of the BRAV socks catalogue.
Please allow 2-4 working days before going to purchase your socks so that we can process your membership.
Please note that you will only be allowed one pair of complimentary Welsh Triathlon socks through BRAV a year.
