British Triathlon Association
The BTA is the national governing body for the sport of triathlon in England, Scotland and Wales. That effectively means it sets the rules for the way that the sport is conducted in this country and it liases closely with other NGBs, the Sports Council/Sport England and international bodies such as the European Triathon Union (ETU), the International Triathlon Union (ITU) and USA Triathlon. The BTA uses a regional structure of volunteers to administer the sport at a local level but its primary role is to support the elite (WCPP funded) athletes.
The BTA's own website should be regarded as the definitive source of information so far as rules, regulations, organisation, etc. We have removed our copies to avoid any confusion.
