About the League Championships

Our Leagues

As a member of Chester Tri you automatically have entry to Chester Tri League events.

There are two Chester Tri Leagues:

Summer League Championships (runs from April until end of September)

Almost any triathlon event at any distance can be used as a Summer League qualification race provided it has a minimum number of 150 finishers.

Winter League Championships (runs from October until April)

The Winter League qualifying events consist of a mixture of Chester Triathlon Club organised events and open events in each discipline of swim, run, bike time trial and duathlon. They will be published on the website and in the club calendar.

The format used in previous years for these Leagues was revised in 2016.


Perpetual shields are presented at the End of Season Party to the overall male and female winners in both leagues. Check out the previous winners in the “Hall of Fame“.

In addition to the overall male and female Summer Club Champions, awards will be made for individual Champions for Sprint, Olympic, Middle and Long Course triathlons in three Age Categories – Seniors, Vets and Super-Vets.

In addition to the overall male and female Winter Club Champions, there will be the three Age Category winners – Seniors, Vets and Super Vets.

There are also awards made to the overall male and female Duathlon Club Champions, based on a club members best duathlon performance. The scoring format is the same as the Summer league, almost any duathlon event can be used (provided it has a minimum number of 150 finishers).

Participation Rules

If an event is classed as an Open event members have to be entered as a member of Chester Triathlon Club on the entry form. This applies to all members especially ones who are members of other clubs that are affiliated with either the North of England Athletics Association (or AAW Welsh equivalent) for running clubs, the Road Time Trials Association for cycling clubs and ASA (Swimming association).

Competitors using other competitor numbers unofficially will not be included in the Leagues. If a number becomes available you need to contact the organiser to have the number details changed. Anyone found to be competing with somebody else’s number will be disqualified from the league.

Any questions please contact Iain Wood on leagues@nullchestertri.org.uk

The league organisers decision will be final in all matters.
