How is my Age Category determined?

 
  • In accordance with the ITU rules, your age is deemed to be your age as at 31 December 2019.
  • Here’s an example of what this means:
    • Andrea turns 40 on 31 July 2019.
    • TriAthy is in on 1 June 2019, a few weeks before her birthday.
    • Even though Andrea will be 39 when she races at Athy, the ITU rules state that she must race in the 40-44 Age Category
    • Why? - Because her age will be 40 on 31 December 2019.
  • Your category will be automatically generated when you enter based on your date of birth.

How is my Age Category determined?

 
  • In accordance with the ITU rules, your age is deemed to be your age as at 31 December 2019. 
  • Here’s an example of how this works:
    • Andrea turns 40 in July 2019.
    • TriAthy 2019 is in June, before her 40th birthday.
    • So even though Andrea will be 39 when she races in Athy, the rules state that she must race in the 40-44 category because her age will be 40 on 31 December 2019.
