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 international stage at the World Triathlon (WT) Championships. Team members have the opportunity to proudly represent their country, participate in a unique team environment and celebrate their sport within the global triathlon community. The age-group team is one hundred percent self-funded.
World Triathlon (WT) holds Multisport World Championships, consisting of Aquathlon, Duathlon, Cross Triathlon and Long Distance Triathlon, the Grand Final, hosting the World Championships in Standard Distance Triathlon and Aquabike, and the new Sprint Triathlon and Relay World Championships. Held in a different location every year, the World Championships attract thousands of like-minded athletes from across the globe, and mark the end of the season for elite and pro athletes, together with age group competitors alike.

What do you need to know about qualifying for Age Group World Championship Events? Athletes are responsible for the following:
- You must be a current, annual member of Triathlon BC or a member of another Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) prior to competition.

What do you need to know about Age Groups?
1.) British Columbia has 10 unique qualifying opportunities throughout the season. Qualifying spots are offered in 5 year age groups e.g. women 40-44, men 45-49 etc.
Note: Race Day standings do not mean you have a qualifying spot in your age category.
2.) Qualifying spots are AGE ADJUSTED to December 31st, 2022. If there is 1 qualifying spot per age group, per gender, the fastest finishing athlete as of age adjusted results that has submitted an expression of interest will then be considered an ‘automatic qualification’.
3.) Automatic qualifiers will be notified by Triathlon Canada directly. If you believe you have qualified and do not receive a notification within one month, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
