The Triathlon Ireland Youth Series supported by Costcutter takes in ten of Ireland’s best triathlons, duathlons and aquathlons for 12-17 year olds.
Starting in May and running right through to October athletes get to test themselves against their peers on land and in the water to see who will take home the Series titles.
To qualify for a final score in the Youth Series, an athlete must complete three events. Scoring is based on the athlete’s highest accumulated points.
The Youth Series supported by Costcutter is based on World Triathlon guidance for U19s and has three age categories.
- 12 – 13 years
