Triathlon Canada has made the decision to cancel the 2021 World Age Group Qualification Program completely. The Gatineau Triathlon races, namely the Sprint Triathlon and Aquathlon, will no longer serve as qualifying races for the 2022 World Championships. Under the current process, participants in these races were required to pay a fee to Triathlon Canada and complete an Expression of Interest form within three weeks prior to the qualifying races to indicate their interest in obtaining a qualifying spot. They would then attempt to qualify by finishing in the top of their age group. As the program was not opened, no Gatineau Triathlon participant paid the additional premium for a qualifying position this year. We are as disappointed as you are with this decision, but look forward to being one of the few major events in Canada that still takes place and promise you a top quality event as usual on July 31st.
