The British Triathlon Federation (BTF) is the Triathlon's governing body in the UK.

A federation of the local triathlon organisations of Triathlon Scotland, Triathlon England and Triathlon Wales.

In general, we strongly encourage all Freedom Tri members to have BTF membership but it is a mandatory requirement for those members who wish to swim in our Open Water Swim venue and your BTF membership number will be required.

Minimum membership level is "Essential" - which provides some basic 3rd party liability insurance.

Membership level "Core" provides members with some personal insurance when training and competing in the UK.    It also acts as a race licence - thereby avoiding any BTF "on the day" licence charges.    Whilst in itself not a huge cost, if you are doing only 3 or 4 BTF sanctioned races within a year, then the additional cost of "core" is paid for by avoiding the on the day race licence fees.

"Ultimate" is much the same as Core - but covers international training and racing.    In some cases the race day charges on international events can be significant.


Freedom Tri is affiliated to the BTF..
