What are the rules of triathlon?


TriAthy adopts ITU rules. For details of the rules click here.


How is my Age Category determined?

  • In accordance with the ITU rules, your age is deemed to be your age as at 31 December 2018. 
  • Here’s an example of how this works:
    • Mary turns 40 in July 2018.
    • TriAthy 2018 is in June, before her birthday.
    • So even though Mary will be 39 when she races in Athy, the rules state that she must race in the 40-44 category because her age will be 40 on 31 December 2018.
  • Your category will be automatically generated when you enter!
