Age Group Events
Welcome to our events page. As well as promoting MedwayTri events, we also want our athletes to compete and accomplish great things at other events locally, nationally and even internationally, if you are that adventurous.
The Events list shows recommended events, giving you the opportunity to see if other club members have entered, before choosing to sign up yourself. If you do enter an event, please do not forget to sign yourself up here on the website, so that our Results and Media Officers can publish your results. It also enables other team mates to see who is racing in which competition.
Age group triathlon and duathlon events
We are, primarily, a triathlon club, so if triathlon or duathlon is your thing, there are a host of local and national races available to enter on our website's events listing. As a club that would really like to make its mark on the national sport, we encourage all of our members who feel confident to try and qualify to compete for the GB Age group team. It sounds daunting at first, but actually it isn't that scary and may be more realistic than you think.
Throughout the year there are numerous races at all distances to qualify for Great Britain Age Group competitions, so why not give it a go and see how you fare? We have had many athletes represent GB within MedwayTri and we would love to have more, so join up now and add yourself to our Hall of Fame.
Check the list of qualifying races for a GB place below and pick one or two that you fancy entering. Then find the corresponding race on our events listing. Enter from the link and tag yourself as joined. Our coaches will assist you in developing your performance for the race and our Results and Media Officers will publish the news.
You can find all qualifiers here.

As well as the cross country series there are many road races across the year. If your long term aim is to compete in long distance triathlon, then long distance run events are a great way to prepare. Winter training is the perfect way of keeping on top of your run, and having a couple of races to plan for, helps to focus on that training.
MedwayTri is also affiliated with England Athletics as a club. Individual athlete affiliation costs £13 for the year, which includes reductions on all trail and road races across the country. If you are planning to enter a series of run events, it does pay to be a member of England Athletics.
