Elite Athletes and Prizes

Eastbourne Triathlon is keen to support and grow the professional side of the sport. Professional and elite athletes who take part will be highlighted with athlete bios on our website and will feature across our various media channels.

Our relationship with you, as a professional/elite athlete, provides a mutually beneficial opportunity to raise both your own profile and the profile of the event. With your help as an event ambassador, we can grow our event participation, which will allow us to put more investment back into future pro prize purses and other initiatives.

If you’re a professional or elite triathlete and are looking for a complimentary race entry and becoming an Eastbourne Triathlon event ambassador, please contact us. Complimentary race entry offers will be made at our discretion. You will automatically be considered an elite if you have competed in at least one ITU World Triathlon Series (WTS), ITU World Cup or ITU Continental Cup Race during the 2018 season, or if you are a current member of the British Triathlon World Class Performance Programme. For those not meeting these requirements, we will consider your race performances during the past season, including your positions, times and any prize money you have won. We will also consider your influence and reach to the triathlon community on social media and your commitment to promote the event as an event ambassador.
