Anyone living in the Yorkshire region, plus those who belong to a Yorkshire-based triathlon club are eligible to compete for a 2019 Yorkshire Championships title, with prizes being awarded to the top three men and women overall. In accordance with the British Triathlon Competition Rules, those taking part in the British Standard Distance Triathlon Championships at the AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds, or attempting to qualify for the Great Britain Age-Group Team, will not be eligible to also compete for a Yorkshire Championship title. The Yorkshire Championship wave is standalone and will take place separately to the standard distance waves which form the British Championships. Therefore conditions in both waves will differ, making it unfair to allow the option of challenging for both titles.
Who can take part?
You must be 17 or over to take part (on the 31st Dec 2019). It is compulsory to wear a wetsuit, and you will need a road worthy bike though this doesn’t need to be a fancy one! You can get advice on hiring both a wetsuit and a bike from the event organisers if you need to.
