With 2019 up and running we want to tell you about 5 opportunities we have for you to get involved with triathlon this year!
Triathlon is a sport for everyone and there are a range of opportunities for you to take part…
British Triathlon permit over 1,100 triathlon and multisport events each year. With a range of events throughout the year taking place across the country, you can be sure to find an event that suits you on the British Triathlon Event Search. As a Triathlon England member you are also eligible to be crowned National Champion for your age-group at our Triathlon England National Championships; more information and how to enter can be found on our website.
If you want to get that event feel without taking part yourself, or simply want to give back to the triathlon community and support others in achieving their aspirations, check out our Permitted Event Volunteer Opportunity Search. This is your one stop shop to finding volunteering opportunities at triathlon events near you! You can also sign up to volunteer at AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds or Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham to get involved with supporting the best triathlon talent that the world has to offer.
Coaching and Activator Courses
Whether you’ve decided to call time on your own competition days and want to stay involved or simply want to support others in their triathlon journey, then becoming a coach or activator could be the path for you. You can search for Level 1 Coaching courses here to take your first steps into coaching and here for more information on how you can get involved in supporting triathlon activities in your area by becoming a Community, Young People or Open Water Activator.
British Triathlon are running their annual Event Organiser Courses which are aimed at anyone who is currently running or who is looking to run triathlon events in the future. The course takes you all the way from project conception to course design, delivery, post event analysis and marketing modules. At the course you will be able to check and challenge your current procedures, learn new skills from industry experts, and network and share ideas with other event organisers.
Once again the world’s top triathletes will be coming to these shores. For your chance to see them up close and personal, be sure to grab your grandstand tickets before they sell out! Watch the action beneath the War Memorial at Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham, and take your place in Millennium Square for AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds.
