All athletes looking to compete for a spot must submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) prior to each qualification event. An EOI page will be available specific to each event and discipline(s) hosted.  What is an Expression of Interest (EOI), and how do I submit one?
An Expression of Interest (EOI) is the mechanism by which athletes confirm their intent to race for and accept an Age Group World  Championship spot should they qualify. By expressing intent, results can be matched again a final list of those athletes who want to attend the World Championships, and spots can be “rolled-down”. The EOI application will open 3 weeks prior to
each race and will close the day prior to the event. There will be a $20 fee to complete the EOI to encourage only athletes serious about claiming a spot to apply. The $20 will be treated as a deposit for those who are successful in obtaining a spot and will come off their Race Entry Fee. The $20 fee will be non-refundable for athletes who are unsuccessful in obtaining a spot. However, it may be applied to a charity entry instead.
