Ay la – entries are now open for this year’s Tri Liverpool, being held in Albert Docks on 26 July and hosting both a leg of the British Triathlon Super Series and GB Age-Group Standard Distance Champs.
The one-day multisport festival will host more than 1,500 triathletes of all abilities, and will provide the first opportunity for aspiring members of the Great Britain Age-Group Team to book their place at the 2016 ITU Triathlon World Championships in Mexico.
“Tri Liverpool has hosted the British Triathlon Championships since 2013 and the event has gone from strength to strength in that time,” said British Triathlon’s Jon Ridgeon. “The City of Liverpool is the perfect setting with its historic docks and iconic buildings and athletes of all abilities can look forward to competing in front of tremendous crowds in a fantastic location.”
Last year’s elite race drew top US athlete Gwen Jorgensen, though it was British junior Sophie Coldwell who nearly pulled off a famous victory, leading the 2014 WTS champ all the way to a tightly-contested finish on the last lap. The men’s elite race was cancelled due to worsening weather conditions. For a gallery head here.
