Nottingham will welcome prospective Tokyo Olympians to the city next summer for the inaugural Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham as the ITU announce their global Mixed Relay Series.
The evening event is set to 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.
Both triathlon beginners and seasoned competitors are being asked to team up and take part when the Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham comes to town in 2018. Find out more here
