Is the event affiliated with British Triathlon and do I need a day membership?

If you do not have annual membership you will need to buy a day membership to take part (£4 in advance, £5 on the day or £1 if you are aged under 20 on 31st December of the year of competition. The exception is the GO TRI /Beginners events which do not require a day membership. To keep entry costs down the Duathlons are not British Triathlon affiliated which means you do not need to purchase a day license to take part. However we do run the duathlons under British Triathlon rules.
