Roundhay Park in Leeds is proud to be hosting a leg of the World Triathlon Series 2016 with athletes from around the globe competing to be World Champion on the weekend of 11th and 12th June 2016.
Following in the footsteps of the unforgettable 2014 Tour de France Grand Départ in Leeds and Yorkshire, this event is hoping to attract thousands of spectators to watch both the amateurs and the professionals – including home heroes Ali and Jonny Brownlee who will be competing in their last event on home soil before the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
And you could also take part in this event in one of three ways, volunteer to help, join in the crowds and support the athletes or maybe take part in the amateur event...... a unique opportunity to take part on the same course as the worlds best ... there's never been a better time to Tri right here in Leeds.
Places are already going fast, so make sure you book yours now to compete on the same course as your triathlon heroes and local champions Jonathan and Alistair Brownlee. Triathlete Jessica Learmonth grew up in Bramham and is now part of the GB triathlon squad and has competed on the elite start line for the last 2 years, including some of the world triathlon series events this year. So this may be a chance to cheer on our local girl in Leeds next year.
