The Bermuda Triathlon Association (BTA) is the National Governing Body in Bermuda for triathlon, duathlon, aquathlon and other relevant multi-sports. The BTA is a member of CAMTRI, the regional governing body covering Canada, North America, Central America, South America and the Caribbean, as well as a member of the international governing body for the sport, the International Triathlon Union (ITU).
The BTA’s aim is to organize 4 to 5 formal events each year – these events are professionally timed, are typically run over courses with closed roads, are subject to the BTA’s Competition Rules and include at least one Standard or Olympic distance race. In addition to these events, the BTA also organizes 3 to 4 “home events” each year – these are less formal, typically on open roads and distance vary. IN addition, from May through to September each year, the BTA hosts a super sprint series every Thursday evening at 6.30 pm at its facility at Clearwater Beach, St. Davids. These are very relaxed and ideal for beginners trying out the sport, or for a speed work out for more experienced triathletes.
The BTA also organizes or sanctions a number of camps each year, including two junior camps coached by well known coaches brought in from overseas, as well as camps for long distance adult triathletes, again coached by well known overseas coaches.
