The 2019 Montreal Esprit Triathlon will offer the following qualifying spots for the 2020 ITU World Multisport Championship in Almere, Netherlands. The Canadian Age-Group World Championship Teams consist of top performing age-group athletes in Canada who earn a spot at a Qualification Race to represent Canada on the world stage at the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championships. Team members have the unique opportunity to proudly represent their country, participate in a unique team environment and celebrate their sport within the global multisport community.

WOMEN AGE GROUPS

18-20  /  20-29  /  30-39  /  40-49  /  50-59  /  60-69  /  70-79  /  80+

*N.B: While race day results and podium categories will be by 5 year age groups (ex: 20-24,25-29, 30-34, etc..), age-group qualification results for the
2020 World Championship will be by 10 year age gap as per the above table. These results will be posted on Sportstats after the event.

In order to qualify to participate in the 2020 ITU World Multisport Championships, athletes must place within the allocated number of spots in their category and meet Triathlon Canada’s eligibility criteria. For example, if an event has 3 qualifying spots per age group, the top 3 athletes of each gender with a valid annual provincial and Triathlon Canada membership for each age-adjusted age category will qualify (as long as they meet the basic criteria below). Athletes must be a Triathlon Canada Member PRIOR to the qualification event. (N.B: Triathlon Quebec members are automatically considered members of Triathlon Canada)

Age-Group athletes who qualified for the 2020 World Championships will receive an email from
Triathlon Canada with a link to complete their World Championship registration.

HOW TO REGISTER

How to Register: Age-Group athletes who qualified for the 2020 World Championships will receive an email from Triathlon Canada with a link to complete their World Championship registration.

NOTE: Athletes that automatically qualify will be given the information needed to register as soon as their eligibility is verified. Please allow one month following each race due to the administration time necessary. If you do not receive notification by one month post qualifying event, please contact agegroupteams@triathloncanada.com as the email may not have reached you.

3. Must pay the Triathlon Canada Management Fee in order to claim a spot (Note: this is NOT your race entry fee)

 Age-Adjusted Results:

Athletes are qualifying for the Age Group World Championships in the following year, so qualification will be determined by age-adjusted results. These are results with birth dates as of December 31st of the following year and NOT race-day results. If an athlete is first in the race-day results, but is bumped to second in the age-adjusted results, that athlete does NOT automatically qualify for a spot if there is only one spot available at the qualifying event.
