IRC 2018

Posted: 12/09/2017 in Uncategorized

The Inter Regional Championships or IRC’s will be held over 2 days on 15/16 September 2018 and will be held at Mallory Park, Leicestershire.

The plan is as follows:

  • Day 1 Individual – Scoring as per usual
  • Day 2 Mixed Team Relay (MTR) – 2 races an IRC wave and a Youth/Jnr wave – all scores combined across both races for a MTR IRC Champs

The IRC is an annual event held as part of the British Triathlon Under 20’s Festival. It is an opportunity for the best 3 girls and 3 boys across both the TriStar 2 and 3 age groups in each of the 10 English Regions, Scotland, Wales and Jersey to race against each other.

With the advent of Mixed Team Relay at the Olympics British Triathlon believes it is very important for young athletes to be exposed to and experience the format. In 2018 the Under 20’s Festival sees the introduction of a Mixed Team Relay for all athletes across TriStar and Youth/Junior ages.

In 2018 there will be an opportunity for each Region to take a travelling reserve in each age category and the reserves will have the opportunity to race in the Mixed Team Relay.

A separate Inter Regional Relay competition will be held on the 2nd day of the Under 20’s Festival combining results from the TriStar and Youth/Junior teams. Athletes in the TriStar Relay will compete in the following order: TS2 girl, TS2 boy, TS3 girl, TS3 boy. Regions will allowed to enter up to 4 TriStar teams enabling reserves to race also.
