Every year we pick some races to be the Serpentine club championships to give Serpies the chance to race against each other to find the best Serpentine member over the various distances and disciplines, and to create a bit of friendly intra-club rivalry! We choose races at sprint tri, standard (Olympic) distance tri and middle-distance (Half Ironman) tri, plus a duathlon and aquathlon. Occasionally there will be a long-distance (Ironman) race as well.
To count for club championship competitions you must:
- Be a first claim member of Serpentine Running Club.
- Have registered your club as Serpentine when joining the British Triathlon or informed them of any change from a former club to Serpentine RC.
- Complete the competition wearing club colours – any Serpentine running vest, tri clothing, cycling shirt or T-shirt carrying the gold hoops counts.
The dates of the club championships are listed below. They are also included in the Serpentine Planner where they are highlighted in yellow.
