Age Group

Join the startline

Age group

Canada’s 22,000+ age group athletes are the heart of Triathlon Canada Nation.

Is your goal simply to cross the finish line, or do you want to aim as high as you can in the amateur world? Either way, age-groupers are your people. The age-group stream includes athletes of all ages and abilities united in their pursuit of the triathlon lifestyle. Some are first time participants, while others are dedicated athletes who have represented Canada at Age Group championships or participated in Ironmans. By definition, an age-group athlete or para-athlete is an amateur athlete 16 years or older. Age-groupers are categorized according to gender and age bracket (16-19, 20-24, 25-29, etc.). At Triathlon Canada, we recognize age-groupers as the beating heart of our Triathlon Canada Nation! Get in touch with your provincial triathlon association to find a club near you.

Age-Group Team Canada

The Canadian Age-Group World Championship Teams consist of top performing age-group athletes and para-athletes in Canada who earn a spot at a Qualification Race to represent Canada on the world stage at the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championships. Team members have the unique opportunity to proudly represent their country, participate in a unique team environment and celebrate their sport within the global multisport community. The age-group team is one hundred percent self-funded.

Each year, there are two world championship events:

  • ITU Multisport World Championships Festival
  • ITU World Triathlon Grand Final

Details for the 2019 events are listed below.  Event Information from the Local Organizing Committees isn’t typically posted until after the event for the current year is completed. 

Para-triathletes compete in age-group competition according to their classification.  If they are not officially classified through the ITU process, para-triathletes can always race locally in a self-identified “Open Paratriathlon”.

How to Qualify

Team Selection

There are three ways to be selected to Age Group Team Canada – direct qualification, roll-down or purchase of a charity entry.  Please read the Team Selection Policy linked below for the full details. All athletes looking to compete for a spot on the 2020 team must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) prior to each qualification event to be eligible to claim a spot.

History

Triathlon Canada has been busy overhauling the Age Group World Championship Qualification process over the past few years.  This has been done for several reasons, but the primary focus has been to address a lack of hosting in Canada.

Back in 2017 there were only 4 provinces in Canada hosting age group world championship spots, with just 12 events offering qualification opportunities across all available disciplines.  This was in large part due to the fact that we had a “pay-to-play” element where anyone could just purchase “left-over” spots at the end of the qualification season.  The question from athletes was “why should I bother to race and qualify when anyone can go?”.  The question from host events was “what is the value in hosting when athletes don’t need to qualify?”.

By moving to a qualification-only model we have solved these problems.  Events want to host because there is now a real incentive for athletes to attend qualification races.  In just two short years, the 2019 qualification season will showcase all 10 provinces with 93 qualification opportunities nation-wide across all available disciplines.  This new system will allow us to continue to drive development of high quality domestic racing opportunities for all Canadians.

There is a new excitement among our age group athletes to qualify, and a real prestige to being named a member of an Age Group World Championship team.  We are very proud to be fielding one of our largest international teams for the 2019 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final with over 350 athletes attending after just one qualification year under the new model.

 

Expressions of Interest and Roll Down

We are piloting a new program for 2019 to address roll-down of qualification spots.  The biggest point of feedback we received in 2018 was that our age group athletes wanted a mechanism to facilitate roll-down of spots nationally so that there is a greater opportunity to qualify.  Managing roll-down is no small feat for a program this large.  An event hosting a single spot can qualify one person per age group, per gender and we have 93 qualification opportunities including events that are hosting several spots deep.

The Expression of Interest (EOI) policy is the mechanism we have used to accomplish roll-down. The point of the EOI is to confirm in advance who is actually racing for a spot and will accept one if it is offered. The event results can be matched against the EOI list to determine who qualifies, essentially accomplishing roll-down all at once. Athletes must finish in the top 8 to be eligible for a roll-down spot.

There is a $20 fee to submit an EOI for a qualification event and it must be done in the 3 weeks prior to the race.  The 3 week period is meant to prevent athletes from blocking a spot they’ve already qualified for events held later in the season.  By having it open until the day prior to the event, athletes are given the opportunity to see who their competition will be before they commit to racing for a spot.  The $20 fee is a commitment to the team, and is meant to ensure that those completing the EOI are serious about taking a spot. For any athlete who qualifies a spot, the $20 fee is treated as a deposit on their race entry.  It is non-refundable for those who are unsuccessful, but it may be applied to a charity entry instead.

More details are provided in the FAQ document linked above.

 

Confirmation to the Team

Approved results will be submitted to Triathlon Canada by the affiliated Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) who will work with the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) of the host event.  Triathlon Canada will match the submitted results (top 8 in each age/gender category) against the list of athlete who completed an Expression of Interest (EOI). Qualifiers will receive an email within 30 days of the qualification event prompting them to accept their spot on Age Group Team Canada for the event in which they qualified.

Please note that all results are AGE ADJUSTED from the qualification year to the competition year.  Don’t know what this means?  Read the FAQ above.

Athletes that qualify will be given the information needed to register as soon as their eligibility is verified. Please allow one month following each race for completion of the administration required. If you do not receive notification by one month post qualifying event, please contact the affiliated PSO to confirm.

Age Group Team Canada Fees

Participating on Age-Group Team Canada is 100% participant paid. As such, athletes should expect the following costs:

Triathlon Canada Team Management Fee: $190

This is a non-refundable deposit all athletes are required to pay to join Age Group Team Canada. It is paid at the time of confirmation to the team – typically around November the year prior to competition.  The purpose of this fee is to cover the base costs for team support.  This includes year-round support by a Team Manager.  For a full breakdown of what your Team Management Fee does for you, click here.

Team Canada Race Kit: ~ $375

The ITU Competition Rules require all athletes competing at World Championship events to wear a team uniform.  This includes two elements – a competition race suit, and parade gear (t-shirt and a jacket).  Triathlon Canada has partnered with 2XU to deliver these mandatory items, as well as a range of additional optional custom kit specially made for Age Group Team Canada.  It is a huge undertaking to outfit our team, and 2XU is committed to creating a kit our athletes can be proud to wear.  Because triathletes come in all shapes and sizes, developing something that will fit everyone perfectly is extremely difficult.  It is critical that athletes use the size guides provide, and know that some slight alterations may be required to get that perfect fit.

Timelines for development and delivery of custom gear are quite long, so purchasing is typically done in November the year prior to competition around the same time as confirmation to the team.

Race Entry Fees: $200 – $600

Race Entry Fees are set by the Local Organizing Committee (LOC), and vary depending on location, local currency, and discipline.  Race fees are usually announced in the spring, but are dependent on what time of year the World Championship event will be.  Windows for payment will be communicated by your Team Manager.  Triathlon Canada collects these entry fees as per the ITU policy and then pays them directly to the LOC as a lump sum.  Fees will be collected in the currency that the LOC requests.  As much as possible Triathlon Canada tries to negotiate payment in major international currencies such as US dollars, Euros etc. In some cases this is not permitted, and collection must be done in a local currency.

Team Canada Social Activities: Free

The Team Management Fee includes a ticket to the Team Meet & Greet in the host city.  Our Team Managers work hard to find interesting venues and light refreshment is always offered.  Additional tickets for friends and family can be purchased prior to the event.  Your Team Manager will provide the details.  This is typically a $35 – $40 value depending on the venue.

Team Hotel: $100 – $250 per night

Triathlon Canada works to establish team hotels in each host city. Often the host organizing committees will block book all the local hotels, so your Team Managers work to negotiate a good option for the team from what is available.  Our top priorities are:

  • Proximity to the venue
  • Proximity to transportation options
  • Mid-level price range
  • Inclusion of amenities such as breakfast, wifi, and parking
  • Permission to store bikes within hotel rooms
  • Availability of meeting space for team briefings

The Team Hotel is often used as a base for activities such as course familiarizations.  Staying at the Team Canada hotel is not mandatory but is recommended for ease of race logistics and social activities.  All athletes are welcome to find a travel agency or accommodation that suits their arrangements and needs. There is no obligation to stay at the Team Canada Hotel.

Travel

Athletes are expected to manage their own travel to and from the event.  This includes booking flights and arranging ground transportation to the venue.

Quick View Cost Breakdown:

Item Status Cost
Due Date
Team Management Fee Mandatory $190 November year prior
Team Canada Uniform Mandatory $375 (approx.) November year prior
Race fees Mandatory $200 – $600 Spring year of event
Team Canada Hotel Optional $100 – $250/night Spring year of event
Team Canada Social Activities      Optional Included RSVP 1 week prior

 

Mandatory Team Uniforms

Team Uniforms are a requirement to be a member of an Age Group World Championship Team. This is an official rule in the International Triathlon Union (ITU) Competition Rules, and athletes are NOT permitted to start a World Championship event without an approved team uniform (competition suit and parade gear).  Click here for the full ITU Uniform Rules.

Triathlon Canada has partnered with 2XU Canada, who is a very proud supporter of our team.  Our mandatory team kit includes the following items:

  1. Competition Race Suit
  2. Parade Gear: T-Shirt
  3. Parade Gear: Jacket

It is Triathlon Canada’s intention for the competition race suit to remain the same design for several years to allow return athletes to avoid purchasing a suit every year.  There are extenuating circumstances, such as a change in supplier, that may not make this possible.  Parade gear is event-specific and will change for each event.

In an effort to keep costs down, the requirement for a black bottom (shorts/pants/skirt etc.) has been removed from the parade gear.  Please ensure you have an option with you to wear in the parade or on the podium.  2XU will offer a full range of optional custom Team Canada items for the team on top of the mandatory gear.

It is a huge undertaking to outfit our team, and 2XU is committed to creating a kit our athletes can be proud to wear.  Because triathletes come in all shapes and sizes, developing something that will fit everyone perfectly is extremely difficult.  It is critical that athletes use the size guides provide specific to each item, and know that some slight alterations may be required to get that perfect fit.

Timelines for development and delivery of custom gear are quite long, so purchasing is typically done in November the year prior to competition around the same time as confirmation to the team.  As all items are custom-made, they are NON-REFUNDABLE.  Again, please make sure you check the size guides prior to ordering.

Policies, Insurance and handbooks

ITU Competition Rules (equipment/uniforms)

Click here for the full ITU Competition Rules.

The ITU World Championships are one time and place where the ITU Competition Rules are strictly applied to age-groupers. This is a little different to most provincial races in Canada, where there is often a little leeway.  We asked our senior officials to come up with some key information from common questions they have received at World Championship events.

 

Q: Do I have to go to the briefing?

No. At the Worlds, the Team Canada Team Managers will attend the race briefing on behalf of the team and then brief the team. If you have any questions about the “ground rules” for the event, ask your team manager. If they do not know, they will ask the head Technical Delegate.  Our Team Managers are very experienced and are fantastic resources for the team.

 

Q: What’s the deal with AG Registration and Check-in?

This is one area that is a little different to the age-group experience at home. At worlds, bike racking is the day before. When you rack, your bike will be checked, and you might be randomly selected for a “technological fraud” check; that’s a fancy way of saying that your bike will be checked for a motor. Your helmet will also be checked at AG Registration for cracks, to make sure it’s approved and for proper fit.

On race morning, turn up in your approved team uniform. The technical team will check your uniform when you enter transition on race morning to do your final checks and pump up your tires.

 

Q: Can I wear compression guards in the swim?

If it is a non-wetsuit swim, covering the legs below the knees is not permitted, so no compression shin-guards. If you are caught in the start pen wearing compression, you will be asked to remove it.

 

Q: What are the wetsuit temperature cut-offs?

The wetsuit cut-offs will be applied. This means wetsuits will be mandatory below 15.9°C for all distances and not permitted above 22°C for Sprint/Standard and 24.6°C for middle/long distance. ITU does NOT recognize an “I don’t want to win a prize, I just want to wear my wetsuit” rule.  In situations where the water temperature is close to a cut-off point the final decision is always made on race morning, so be prepared!

Swim Length Forbidden Mandatory
Up to 1500m 22° and above 15.9° and below
Up to 1500m 22° and above 15.9° and below
1501m and longer 24.6° and above 15.9° and below

 

 

Q: What are the swim cut-off times?

Swim cut-off times will be strictly enforced. This is 30 minutes for Sprint and 70 minutes for the standard. The cut-off is 1hr 40min for swims between 1501m and 3000m and 2hrs 15 min between 3001m and 4000m.

The full set of swim-tables, including the water/air temperature adjustment table, can be found in the Competition Rules.

Swim Length Cut-Off Time
Up to 300m 20min
301m to 750m 30min
751m to 1500m 1hr 10min
1501m to 3000m 1hr 40min
3001m to 4000m 2hr 15min

 

 

Q: What bike do I need for the sprint at Worlds?

The Sprint distance at Worlds is draft-legal. This means you must ride a road bike. It cannot have any kind of aero-bar or disc wheels. The official ITU Graphic is below.

Q: I don’t think my race-wheels are UCI legal for mass-start road racing. Is that OK?

Yes. For Age-group draft legal we do not use the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) wheel list. For age-group draft legal, your wheels need to have 12 spokes.

 

Q: I’m really confused about disc brakes. What is the rule?

Disc brakes are allowed on the rear wheel in all disciplines and distances, including age-group draft-legal.  However, disc wheels can be disallowed due to high wind conditions on course, so make sure you are prepared!

 

Q: So, if it’s drafting, I can draft off anyone?

Nearly! It is not permitted to draft from an athlete on a different lap or of the opposite gender.

 

Q: The standard distance is still non drafting?

Yes, drafting is not permitted in the standard distance. Time-trial bikes may be used. The draft-zone is 10 meters long and you have 20 seconds in which to pass.

 

Q: If I get overtaken, how long do I have to wait until I can try to pass?

If you are passed, you must drop out of the draft-zone of the person who overtook you before attempting to overtake them. If you do not, you will get a drafting penalty.

 

Q: Did I hear there are certain bikes that I can’t ride in an ITU Standard distance event?

Yes, you did. The bike must have a traditional frame, that is built around a main triangle and a rear triangle. In general, “non-traditional” frames are not allowed. So, a classic Softride would not be allowed.

At the time of writing (April 2019), the ITU has approved four non-traditional bikes for non-draft legal racing; the Cervelo P5X, the TriRig Omni, the Ventum One and the Reap TT.

 

Q: What colour card do they show for drafting?

If you are judged to have been drafting, the moto official will show you a blue card and inform you that you have a drafting penalty. You must respond that you understand. It is your responsibility to stop at the bike penalty box. There will NOT be a board with your number, and the officials will NOT attempt to stop you to serve your penalty. If you do not stop, you will be disqualified.

 

Q: I heard they changed the rules about what I can do in the penalty box?

Yes they did. In the penalty box you may eat or drink whatever you have on your person. You may not use the bathroom, adjust your bike, or eat/drink food you did not have on your person. If you do, the time will be stopped.

 

Q: I can get as many drafting penalties as I like, can’t I?

No. If you get two drafting penalties in a sprint/standard or three in a middle/long distance you will be disqualified.

 

Q: Can I appeal my drafting penalty?

No. You cannot appeal a drafting penalty.

 

Q: I can’t run without my tunes!

It is not permitted to use earphones or headsets in any phase of the competition. This includes bone-conduction bluetooth headphones.

 

Q: Anti-doping is just for Elites, right?

Wrong. Anti-doping may be carried out on age-groupers too. Make sure you have identification at the race-site in case you are selected for testing.

 

Q: What if anyone has any more questions?

If you are unsure about anything here are some additional resources!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the ITU and what are the ITU World Championships?

A: The International Triathlon Union (ITU) is the world governing body of the sport of triathlon and associated multisport disciplines (e.g., long distance, duathlon, aquathlon, aquabike). Each year the ITU hosts World Championships in Triathlon and Multisport for both elites and age-group athletes at the same venue and time.  To participate in the ITU World Championships each athlete must qualify at an event in their country and register through their national federation.  It is the responsibility of the national federation to identify athletes for the world championship start list.

Q: Are there other ITU age group races other than the ITU World Championships?

A: The ITU aims to provide the opportunity for competition and sport development from grassroots to the elite level at all their events. The idea of grassroots to elite is unique to the sport of triathlon, where one can witness athletes racing from a wide range of ages. The entire event is a visual spectacle that will inspire and motivate. As such, almost all ITU races host an open age-group component where Canadian athletes can enter.  Check http://www.triathlon.org/ for events and the specific event website for more information.
