AGM | AWARDS | WORKSHOPS
The inaugural Triathlon England Conference takes place on Saturday 9 November 2019 at the Crowne Plaza Birmingham NEC. The aim of the conference is to celebrate a fantastic 2019 for our sport and to provide our volunteers, clubs, officials, athletes and event organisers with the appropriate tools and knowledge to play a key role in increasing the number of people participating in triathlon and achieving more. The conference is held over one day and consists of the Annual General Meeting, awards, workshops, Q&A with Commonwealth Games double gold medallist Jodie Stimpson and the opportunity for attendees to meet Triathlon England and British Triathlon staff.
This year we have seen more clubs making themselves great, a hugely successful events programme, coaches providing athletes with the opportunity to improve and be successful and, our inspirational volunteers playing a vital part in the development and delivery of triathlon. We hope to see you on the 9 November.
