Participants can enjoy racing along the Victoria embankment for even longer in 2019, as amateur race routes for this year’s edition of the Accenture World Triathlon Nottingham have been unveiled.
It all starts with a swim in the River Trent before exiting the water and a short run up to transition. Helmet on, grab your bike and participants will head out onto the bike course which will take them from one end of the Victoria Embankment to the other, it's closed roads so you can take in just how scenic this course is. The run sees you go up and over Trent Bridge once you're over its all the home run, you'll hear the event the entire way round cheering you home.
With just under three months to go until the world’s top triathlon quartets descends on Nottingham, the routes for the amateur races have been revealed, with an extension to the bike course taking you that bit further along the embankment come Saturday 15 June.
The event, now in its second year, has already exceeded last year’s participant numbers and is set to welcome 750 triathletes to the city in June, many chasing British Sprint Triathlon Championship titles with the introduction of Draft Legal racing.
With the latest addition of the TriStar 2 and 3 races to the event roster, it’s also an opportunity for talented youngsters in the region and further afield to race on the same course as their triathlon heroes.
One budding triathlete looking to make her swim, bike, run debut on the Nottingham course is double Olympic Swimming Champion, Rebecca Adlington. Having competed as part of a relay squad in 2018, she returns to take on her very first sprint triathlon this June; inviting 49 lucky people able to join her wave on race day and offering the chance to gain some last-minute swim tips from her ahead of the race.
