The qualification criteria for both TREC GB Championships 2022 has changed slightly to the following:

  • For classes with up to 10 individuals/pairs, competitors placed 1st to 5th will qualify.
  • For classes with 11 or more individuals/pairs, competitors placed 1st to 7th will qualify.
  • This will be backdated to include those qualifying competitions from Summer 2019, including the Championships.
  • Qualification will roll down if the persons placed 1st to 5th (or 1st to 7th) have already qualified.
