Nomination Information

 

The HUUB Triathlon England Awards provide an opportunity to recognise the many numbers of volunteers, coaches, officials, clubs and events that have made triathlon a truly unique sport in 2022.

Nominations are made on a regional basis, with a regional winner being determined from the nominations in the 13 categories as judged by an awards committee. The winners from each of the 10 English regions in these categories will then go forwards to a national awards panel who will determine the national award winner in each of the 13 categories.
