Club Championship

This is your chance to complete with your fellow club members for a coveted custom BADtri champions jersey.

Purpose

To bring club members together in their racing, competition and support whilst giving new members a structure to their season in an environment where they will be encouraged. To support local races and clubs whilst encouraging our members to volunteer and support our own events and training. To raise the profile of BADtri as a club in the locality, encourage new memberships and drive a team ethos.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the championship members must sign up when registering as a member, there is a cost of £2 to be entered into the championship, this will go right back into making the championship happen with any excess going to the club charity.
To win the championship you must volunteer at a club event. Qualifying events include the races, service on the committee or as a regular coach or helper with the juniors. Other volunteering opportunities are available but must be cleared with the championships team who you can contact through the "contact us" section of the website.

Categories

When you sign up there will be two categories; aspiring and inspiring.
  • The aspiring category is for athletes who are either just starting out at triathlon or feel that they race at a beginner or intermediate level
  • The inspiring category is for those who feel that they compete at the upper levels in their gender and age group. If you have a few seasons of regular racing then you are likely to be in the inspiring category.
If any aspiring athlete finishes within 110% of the race winners time they will atomically be moved to the inspiring category.

Any athlete who has won the inspiring category in the preceding year will be automatically move up to inspiring.

If you feel you have enetered the wrong category please contact us.
