The ITU World Triathlon Series Leeds returns to the city for a third time on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 June 2018, representing the pinnacle of triathlon competition in the UK and providing more than 5,000 recreational triathletes with the unique opportunity to compete on much of the same course as the world’s best!

The ITU World Triathlon Series Leeds 2018 sees the world’s top triathletes competing across the globe for rankings points that determine the overall ITU world champion.

2018's event will also provide 5,000 amateur triathletes with the unique opportunity to compete on much of the same course, in one of three mass participation distances, listed below.

GO TRI – The perfect beginner friendly option, with manageable distances and a fun, relaxed environment.

SPRINT DISTANCE – For those looking for a bit more of a challenge, the sprint distance event is a great option.

STANDARD DISTANCE - The standard distance event will plays host to the British Standard Distance Triathlon Championships and it aimed at more experienced athletes.

The GO TRI event takes place on Saturday 9 June. Sunday 10 June will see the sprint and standard distances mass participation races take place in the morning, with the elite athletes taking to the stage on Sunday afternoon.

The ITU World Triathlon Leeds 2018 will be organised exclusively by British Triathlon in partnership with Leeds City Council, UK Sport and the ITU.

GO TRI is open to anybody aged 15 or over, and is especially aimed at those new to the sport. With manageable distances and set in the beautiful surroundings of Roundhay Park, the GO TRI event is for those who want to give the sport a go for the first time. You will need to wear a wetsuit and a road-worthy bike (though this doesn’t need to be a fancy one!) You can hire both of these from the event organisers if you need to.

There will also be a range of family friendly events taking place on the Saturday. 

You don’t need to be participating in the race to experience the thrill of the ITU World Triathlon Series Leeds! There are plenty of spaces perfect for spectators to take in the excitement across the weekend. Visit the Leeds Triathlon website for more details.
