- In accordance with the ITU rules, your age is deemed to be your age as at 31 December 2017.
- Here’s an example of what this means:
- Mary turns 40 on 31 July 2017.
- TriAthy is in on 3 June 2017, a few weeks before her birthday.
- Even though Mary will be 39 when she races at Athy, the ITU rules state that she must race in the 40-44 Age Category
- Why? - Because her age will be 40 on 31 December 2017.
