Giving Queensland members plenty of opportunities to race for qualification points towards selection for Triathlon Australia’s 2017 Age Group ITU World Championships team for Sprint Distance, Standard Distance, Long Course, Duathlon, Aquathlon, Cross Triathlon and Paratriathlon.

About the National Calendar

The National Calendar is made up of seven National Qualifying Series, our Australian Championship title races, Elite and OTU Series and the Australian Youth, Junior and Under 23 Triathlon Series.

Miles Stewart, CEO of Triathlon Australia says, “The National Calendar sets to showpiece some of the best Triathlon and multisport events Australia has to offer.”

“Not only are the events a unique experience, but our Race Directors delivering them are world class. The schedule includes races to be held in every state over the next 12 months.”

Triathlon Australia National Calendar

The National Qualifying Series races are the bedrock of our calendar. Each of the seven Series is comprised of up to 10 races across Australia which carry points towards selection for the 2017 ITU Age Group World Championships teams for Aquathlon, Duathlon, Sprint Distance, Standard Distance, Long Distance, Cross Triathlon and Paratriathlon. These races represent your chance to win points to secure a place on the Australian ‘Green & Gold’ teams travelling to Penticton, Canada (18-27 Aug), and Rotterdam, Netherlands (14-17 Sept) in 2017. The Australian Championships are the pinnacle of the series across each discipline and provide athletes the opportunity to earn double qualification points.

The National Calendar is open to athletes of all levels, with the races set to showcase some of the best triathlon events the sport has to offer. If you are interested in qualifying for any of the Age Group teams you must be a Triathlon Australia member. Join Triathlon Australia >
