2008 World Championships - Age Group Spots

November 27, 2007

Triathlon Canada would like to extend the opportunity to those athletes who were unable to compete at a 2008 Vancouver World Championships qualifying event this past 2007 season but are interested in obtaining an age group spot for the 2008 World Championships.

There are very few spots still available in some group categories in the Olympic and Sprint distances. For a full list of what is available, please see: 2008 Vancouver World Championships – Canadian Age Group Team Spots Available

If you wish to apply for a 2008 Vancouver World Championships spot, please complete and submit the following items to info@triathloncanada.com or by Fax: 416.426.7294 by Tuesday, December 2nd , 2007.

  1. Special Qualifying Application Form
  2. Race Resume highlighting 2007 season results or medical documentation outlining why you were unable to compete
  3. Triathlon Canada Team Registration Form – Olympic or Sprint Distance
  4. 2008 Waiver and Privacy Policy

There is a $150.00 assessment fee in addition to your Team and Race Entry fee. Please note that if your application is not approved, $100.00 will be refunded and you will not be charged for the Team and Race Entry Fee.

Applying athletes must also meet the following criteria:

a) You must be in good standing with your Provincial Association and hold a valid membership number. Failure to list your membership # on your registration form will result in a incomplete form and therefore will not be processed.
b) You must be a Canadian citizen or hold a valid Canadian Passport
c) Complete the registration package and pay the associated fee(s) within the deadlines outlined by Triathlon Canada

All applications received by the deadline date will be screened to ensure they meet the published criteria than remaining spots will be filled through random selection.
