Leeds confirmed as venue for the British Age Group Champs
British Triathlon have confirmed that the British Standard Distance Championships will move to Leeds for 2017, after four years at Tri Liverpool.
This means the Leeds event will now host the fourth stage of the ITU series, the British Triathlon Championships and the English Aquathlon Championships over the same weekend.
British Triathlon Chief Executive Jack Buckner commented: “After four fantastically memorable years at Tri Liverpool, we have decided to move the British Standard Distance Triathlon Championships to the heartland of the sport in 2017.
“As we prepare to witness the greatest athletes in the world go head-to-head in Leeds next June, what better opportunity to showcase the best of British age-group talent than see them finish on the same iconic blue carpet in Millennium Square.”
