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!

Why do I need a Race Licence to participate at TriAthy 2019?

  • TriAthy 2019 is a Triathlon Ireland sanctioned event.
  • As such all participants are required to have a "Race Licence" in order to participate for insurance purposes.
  • A Race Licence is either:
    • Full Membership of Triathlon Ireland in 2019 (Full, Student, or Junior membership only); OR
    • Full Membership in 2019 of any affiliated ITU Organsiation (including the British Triathlon Federation encompassing: Triathlon England / Welsh Triathlon / Triathlon Scotland); OR
    • A One Day Membership for the TriAthy event you are taking part in.
  • Both Triathlon Ireland Membership and One Day Membership's can be purchased directly from Triathlon Ireland.
  • Note that One Day Membership for the TryAthy race is at the discounted rate of €15. For all other races, the One Day Membership is €25.
