Nottingham to host Olympic triathlon qualification event in 2018

Nottingham will welcome prospective Tokyo Olympians to the city for the inaugural Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham as the ITU announce their global Mixed Relay Series.

The evening event is will take place on Thursday 7 June and will witness some of the world’s top triathlon quartets dive into the River Trent, before racing around Victoria Embankment on both bike and foot, just two days before they head north to take on the British leg of the ITU World Triathlon Series in Leeds.

 

Triathlon Mixed Relay will make its Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Games, making the event in Nottingham a top priority for nations looking to secure the first points on offer to qualify their spots on the start line. The Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham was named by the ITU as the first of two qualification events taking place in 2018, in addition to the ITU Mixed Relay World Championships and the Continental Championships.

The City of Nottingham was introduced to the fast and furious version of the sport back in September, when 15,000 fans gathered on a sunny Victoria Embankment to watch the best of Britain’s triathletes battle to lift the first Accenture British Triathlon Mixed Relay Cup. This time, 17 of the best teams from across the world will gather to take on a leading British quartet.

There will be plenty of opportunities for participants to take on the course themselves earlier in the day:
