Please see the Triathlon England website for details of the Eastern Region Regional League. The selection of races that make up the Eastern Region Regional League covers several types;

League events

Open to everyone but the overall league winners must be Triathlon England Eastern Region members to qualify for a prize at the end of the season. We will award trophies to the first 3 in each category at the end of the season

Children's League events – some of these are doubling up as qualifiers for the Inter Regional Championships (note that this year the IRCs are for Tristar 2 and 3 only).
Adult League events – covering distances from Super Sprint to Middle, 5 events to count of which at least 2 must be middle/standard and 2 must be sprint/super sprint.
Adult Cross League events – for the first time we are running a cross league in recognition of the number of events coming online in the region..

Championship events

One off races with the first member of an Eastern Region championship (male and female) declared the winner. For adult races there will be an open and veteran (40 and over) category. The region will provide trophies but the races should provide their own race trophies as normal.
