Athletes competing in Seoul, Madrid and Hamburg will obtain spots for the 2010 ITU Age-Group Triathlon World Championships in Budapest, while athletes competing in London and Kitzb?hel will secure a starting position at the 2011 ITU Age-Group Triathlon World Championships in Beijing; getting a unique chance to compete on the 2008 Olympic course.

There will be a roll down system if any of the spots are unclaimed. This roll down system will only apply to athletes finishing in the top 10 of their age category. After finishing the race, all athletes who have finished in the top 10 of their category and who wish to register for the Grand Final must go to the registration area and must submit their details. The registration process will finish 30 minutes after the last athlete crosses the finish line. Athletes should look for more details about the post race registration at the event.

All athletes who qualify through this system must still abide by the rules and regulations of their national federation for competing at the Grand Final. Sign up to one of the races today to get your chance to obtain once of these qualification spots now.
