British Triathlon Mixed Relay Cup Nottingham
2 March 2017
A brand new triathlon event is coming to Nottingham - The British Triathlon Mixed Relay Cup Nottingham will feature some of Great Britain’s finest sporting talent racing around Victoria Embankment and Trent Bridge on Saturday 2 September.
An expected crowd of 20,000 spectators and a live BBC television audience will follow the action as up to 20 elite teams, including Olympians, battle to become the event’s inaugural champions.
Teams will be formed from British Triathlon’s high performance centres and major cities, seeing world-famous elite triathletes compete alongside up and coming talent. Teams, to include quartets from Leeds, Loughborough, Stirling, Cardiff, Bath and Nottingham amongst others, will comprise two men and two women who each complete the super-sprint triathlon involving a 300m swim in the River Trent, 7.5km bike ride and 1.5km run before ‘tagging’ their teammate to take over. There will also be Great Britain Under-23 and Junior squads, with the potential of international team inclusion.
