You will no doubt already have seen the qualifying events <here> for the ITU and ETU Age Group Triathlon/Duathlon events in 2013.
However FOR THE 2013 ITU SPRINT TRI you may not realise:
1. There are 25 slots for the home nation (not the usual 18)
2. For the qualifiers: 60% of places are reserved for Home Nation Members until 4 weeks prior to the event.
3. There will probably be no parallel event to Hyde Park for Age Groupers who don’t qualify to do the course.
