Age-group places for Dextro Energy Triathlon sell out

All age-group entries have now sold out for the ITU London stop-over at Hyde Park on July 24 and 25

World champion Alistair Brownlee is tuning up to return from injury for the Madrid leg of the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championships Series this weekend, but organisers in the UK are also being put through their paces after an announcement today that all age-group entries have now sold out for the London stop-over at Hyde Park on July 24 and 25.
“We’ve had a recent surge of entries because the event has caught everyone’s imagination. The Olympic Distance sold out a while ago and now our last Sprint Distance place has gone, too”, said James Robinson of event promoters Upsolut Sport UK Ltd.  “There’s a real buzz about the thought of racing on the same venue as the 2012 Olympic Games”.
The sell-out means that charity partners now hold the keys to entry for would-be racers as they hold the last remaining places.
Marie Curie Cancer Care, the event’s official charity, and the ITU’s Global Charity Partner, The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, have a limited number of places left but entrants will need to be quick to secure one. Participants raise funds for the charities in return for their guaranteed place.
