Individual Members

With effect from 04 March 2019 British Triathlon has revised its membership offering and new categories of membership are now available with exciting new benefits. It is your responsibility to check what membership you are on and the level of cover this provides.

Differences in the new membership categories are described here and on the British Triathlon Insurance Pages. Current/legacy memberships purchased before 04 March 2019 will continue with the current levels of benefit until your membership falls due for renewal, at which time you can change to the most appropriate of the new membership categories going forward.

As a member of Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland or Welsh Triathlon you are protected by two important insurance policies

  1. Public Liability

    Public Liability Insurance for all your swimming, cycling and running activities whether you are in training or competition.

    This policy covers the cost of defending yourself against a claim if held responsible for loss, damage or injury to someone else or their property. An excess of £250 applied to any claim brought against you for property damage

    Cover is provided for up to £15m and operates worldwide if you are training or competing abroad in an ETU/ITU sanctioned event.

  2. Personal Accident Benefits

    This is a no-fault compensation, in the event you suffer a serious, life-changing injury or are tragically killed whilst training or competing

Further details and answers to Frequently Asked Question are available here. This only applies to legacy memberships purchased up to 4th March 2019.

Associate Members

As an associate member (which includes technical officials and activators) you are protected by the Public Liability insurance only as detailed above. There is no cover for participation in events. Personal accident cover does not apply to associate members.
