State Championship Rules

State Championship Eligibility
  • Current Premium or Standard members of AusTriathlon and the State of Competition will be eligible to be crowned a state champion in the designated events. For example a Victorian State Championship requires a current AusTriathlon – VIC membership.
  • Age groups are calculated based on the age as of 31st December of the beginning of season – i.e. 31 December 2023 for the 2023/24 season.
  • A state champion is the first member who crosses the line in their age category that meets the criteria of eligibility. i.e. if a non-member comes first and an eligible member places second, that member is crowned the state champion.
  • Unless specified otherwise in state-specific rules, Open or Elite waves are not eligible for State Championships.
  • Members must enter the relevant championship event and declare their membership status to be eligible.
