Welsh Triathlon Inter Regional Championship Team Selection & Welsh Triathlon Academy Programme Assessment Day

Published:

After being cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 Pandemic Welsh Triathlon are pleased to announce the Interregional Championship (IRC’s) event will return in 2021 in Mallory Park, Leicestershire on the weekend of 10th & 11th September 2021.

The event which is run by British Triathlon is a chance for TriStar 2 and TriStar 3 athletes from across Wales, Scotland, and the 10 English regions to come together to take part in a festival of triathlon.

Athletes will race over heats and finals format meaning two opportunities for everyone to race as well as spectate the various youth, junior and senior elite races taking place on the same day.

Normally for this event, Welsh Triathlon put together a selection process that provides multiple racing opportunities, however, due to the continuing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on event delivery in Wales we have decided to change the way we select a team for the 2021 event.

For 2021 selection for the IRCs will involve attending one of the two Welsh Triathlon Selection Days below. During the day athletes will have an opportunity to take part in swim, run, and bike* time trials. The four athletes from each gender & age group with the lowest overall time will be selected for the IRC team.

*Only TriStar 3 athletes will take part in a bike TT as TriStar two race over an aquathlon.
