We are delighted to have been named as Gold Charity Partner for the 2017 event which will host over 5,000 amateur participants, from first timers through to experienced triathletes, in a weekend packed full of triathlon action for all abilities.
On Sunday 11 June, the sprint and standard distance events, as well as the relay, will offer a new and improved course for amateur athletes including a single transition in Roundhay Park. A swim in Roundhay Park’s Waterloo Lake will precede a challenging bike route, before athletes re-rack their bikes in Roundhay Park and head on foot to the world famous blue carpet finish in the city centre's Millennium Square.
The Columbia Threadneedle World Triathlon Leeds represents the pinnacle of triathlon competition in the UK, providing recreational triathletes with a once in a lifetime opportunity to compete on the same course as the world's best.
We have something for everyone with places available in the Olympic, Sprint and Beginner categories! You can also enter as a 2 or 3 person relay team for the Olympic and Sprint distances.
Olympic Distance - 1.5km Swim, 40km Bike and a 10km Run
Sprint Distance - 750m Swim, 20km Bike and a 7.5km Run
Go Tri Beginner Distance - 200m Swim, 10km Bike and a 2.5km Run
