Get up close and personal with the sport’s top athletes, as they pound the streets of Leeds. Sadly Ali Brownlee has had to pull out so all British eyes will be on Jonny in the men’s race – can a Brownlee top the podium for a third year running?

You can also buy grandstand tickets, which will allow you to see the elites race past seven times on the bike and four times on the run, as well as the exciting race finale. Can the Brits deliver on home soil?

  A big screen will also be located opposite the grandstand, so grandstand ticket holders can watch live coverage and commentary as the race unfolds, ensuring they don’t miss a single moment.

 
4. Take part in a race
Don’t just watch, take part! Age-group events are taking place over the weekend, including Go Tri Leeds which, with its shorter supersprint distances, is perfect for newbies. We rated it 6th best shortie in the UK for beginners, for more info visit: https://leeds.triathlon.org/event_info/schedule/
