About the Championships

Our Championships

As a member of Chester Tri you automatically have entry to Chester Tri Championship events.  The rules and operation are reviewed and revised annually.

There are two Chester Tri Championships:

Summer Championships (runs from April until end of September)

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

Winter Championships (runs from October until April)

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

Awards

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

In addition to the overall male and female Club Champions, there are awards for individual champions at Sprint, Standard, Middle and Long Course distances in three age categories – Seniors, Vets and Super-Vets.  There are no age category awards for duathlon.  In the Summer Championships a triathlete can win a maximum of two awards, then roll-down will apply.

In addition to the overall male and female Winter Club Champions, there are also three age category winners.

 

If an event is classed as an Open event members have to be entered as a member of Chester Triathlon Club only on the entry form. This applies particular to those who are members of other clubs that are affiliated with 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).  Using another competitor number unofficially or the kit of another club, or a sponsors kit, will invalidate your result for the purposes of the Championships.

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

The league organisers decision will be final in all matters.
