What are the rules of triathlon?

 

How is my Age Category determined?

 
  • In accordance with the ITU rules, your age is deemed to be your age as at 31 December 2019. 
  • Here’s an example of how this works:
    • Andrea turns 40 in July 2019.
    • TriAthy 2019 is in June, before her 40th birthday.
    • So even though Andrea 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 2019.
  • Your Age category will be automatically generated when you enter!

How do I update my registration details?

 
  • You can log into your Active Europe account and update your personal details.
  • You can find a link to this at the footer of the email that you received from them when you entered the race. See email sample below.
