The age adjusted results will be used to determine the automatic qualified athletes, who will be notified by Triathlon Canada directly.


Roll Down Policy

Triathlon Canada is offering an opportunity to claim an unclaimed spot for those athletes who do not automatically qualify based on the age adjusted results. Athletes will need to submit an online (link to be provided) Expression of Interest for the event they wish to claim a roll down spot in PRIOR to the event race date. Athletes will be charged $20 to submit an their “EOI” which will be treated as a deposit for those who are successful in obtaining a spot and will be deducted from their Team Management Fee as part of their official confirmation to the team. The $20 fee will be non-refundable for athletes who are unsuccessful in obtaining a spot. However, it may be applied to a charity entry instead. Successful athletes will be notified by Triathlon Canada directly.
