The stage is set and only a handful of spots remain in the sprint and beginner distance races, as the ITU World Triathlon Series prepares to make its début in Leeds this summer.
In light of this, we are offering British Triathlon Home Nation members (Triathlon England, Triathlon Scotland and Welsh Triathlon) and exclusive £5 discount when entering either race, set to take place Sunday 12 June.
The event, which is part of UK Sport’s National Lottery funded #EveryRoadtoRio series, is aiming to attract thousands of spectators to support Britain’s best triathletes as part of their final preparations for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
With the standard distance race already sold out, this is a rare opportunity to be among the first to take on the iconic course set in the heart of triathlon’s British home.
This means to line up in Roundhay Park and take on the beginner distance will cost only £54. Fancy a tougher challenge? Members have the chance to take on the sprint distance for just £74.
To access your unique discount code, members need to click below to log in to the membership benefits section of Triconnect. From here it will direct you towards the event website. But hurry – only a limited number available and the offer is only valid until midnight, 31 January 2016.
Olympic bronze medallist, Jonathan Brownlee, has been involved in designing the course, and is keen to encourage competitors and spectators.
He said: “I want this event to be really special, and the way to achieve that is by lots of people coming out to watch.
“Anyone can enter and do the race on the same course. You will literally be running down the same finishing straight.”
The race route is due to released in the near future.
Beginner – 400m Swim, 15km Bike, 2.5km Run
Sprint – 750m Swim, 20km Bike, 5km Run
