Scottish National Youth Triathlon Championships 2024

18 May 2024

This Festival is in a testing state, and is not open for public sign-ups until the organiser has launched it.

Organiser's Description

Fusion Triathlon Club are proud to announce The National Youth Triathlon Championships Saturday 18th May 2024 (ages 8-16yrs) and Adult Novice/Super Sprint Triathlon



The Scottish National Youth Triathlon Championships hosted by Fusion Triathlon Club is a fun event set in the grounds of Glasgow's Bellahouston Park.  Although this event hosts the National Youth Championships, there is no minimum standard required and the event is aimed at all levels and abilities and is an ideal introduction to the sport of triathlon.  The course is on traffic free park roads with the run course on grass and tarmac. All entrants will receive a goody bag with race day momento.

Along with the youth events we are also running an adult Novice/Super Sprint Triathlon that is ideal for both new and seasoned competitors.

Tristar2/Tristar3 Inter Regional Championships (IRC) Qualifier
This event is also a qualifying event for the Scottish IRC team. The 2024 Inter Regional Championships will take place at the British Triathlon Super Series Grand Final at Mallory Park Race Circuit on 14 & 15 September 2024.

This will mean that gear restrictions are in place for Tristar2 and Tristar3 events.  Please read the following information carefully if you are competing in either of these events:

Selection Information

The aim of the Triathlon Scotland Inter Regional Championships Team is to provide a race-based experience of the skills athletes wishing to progress onto the Triathlon Scotland Performance Pathway will require. Selection to the 2024 Triathlon Scotland Inter Regional Championships Team will be determined by the selectors appointed by Triathlon Scotland and will be made in line with this aim.

To be eligible for selection, participants must:

  • Have a valid Triathlon Scotland membership prior to the start of the final selection race.
  • Be living in Scotland or be an active member of a Triathlon Scotland Affiliated Club.
  • Be registered as a female at birth for nomination for female events (and as a competitor in a female place in a Mixed Relay). See the BTF Transgender Policy more information.

The TriStar 2 and TriStar 3 events that are being used for selection for the IRC team will be gear restricted. For full details on what this means and how to check if your bike has the correct restrictions please refer to – Gear Restrictions – British Triathlon

On the day there will be Triathlon Scotland staff available to help TriStar 2 and TriStar 3 athletes ensure their bikes conform to the regulations and provide advice and support if needed.


Championship Eligibility 

Scottish National Championship events comprise overall winners and age group category winners, giving members the chance to compete against their peers and win National titles.

To be eligible to win a National title you must be a Core or Ultimate member of Triathlon Scotland no later than 5pm, 3 working days prior to the championships (e.g. 5pm Wednesday for a Sunday event).  The only exceptions to this are for the Scottish National Youth Triathlon Championships, where competitors can join Triathlon Scotland at registration before the race starts, and the Scottish National Schools Aquathlon Championships, where participants do not need to be a member.

Please select the race category being entered: Female category or Open category.

Only people who are female sex at birth are eligible to compete in the Female category. All individuals including transgender people are eligible to compete in the Open category. Responses to this question will enable event organisers to allocate competitors into the correct race category, as required under the British Triathlon Transgender Policy effective 1 January 2023. This can be read here and provides more information regarding race categories and eligibility.

Cancellation Policy

In the unfortunate event that you need to withdraw from the race we will refund 50% of the entry fee until 28 days before the race. After that, no refund will be payable.


Exchange Policy

We do not offer a facility to exchange entry places prior to the event under any circumstances.  This also applies to people arriving at the event who wish to take another person's place.  Identities of TS members will be checked at registration.

Swim Time

PLEASE ENTER AN ACCURATE AND REALISTIC TIME FOR THE ACTUAL DISTANCE OF THE EVENT.  This is used to put everyone into heats and to determine the starting order.  If you don't know your swim time you can put down a provisional estimated swim time and this can be updated at any time prior to the date on which entries will close.   If you have put an estimated time, please go to a swimming pool and time yourself so the heats can be as fair as possible.  Enterning a swim time too fast or too slow results in more overtaking of or by the athlete concerned which will waste time for both the athlete concerned and other participants.  Only entering an accurate time can allow a smooth and fair swim leg.

If you are unable to enter online then please contact the race organiser for further information.
