Age-group racing at London
Change of format for next year's Dextro weekend
The organisers of the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship London has announced age-group racing will return next year. The elite and age-groupers racing takes place over the weekend of 24-25 July 2010.
The event will once again see the world’s best triathletes compete head to head for World Championship points, at the venue for the 2012 Olympic Triathlon. According to the organisers, the elite races will once again be covered live on BBC1 and worldwide.
In a change to the 2009 format, the elite races will be staged on both days: elite women, Saturday 24 July and elite men, Sunday 25 July. Consequently, the age-group races, which are open to participants of all abilities, across the Sprint and Olympic Distances, will also be staged across the entire weekend.
Entries for the age-group races will open early December via www.wcs-triathlon-london.org. For entries before 31 December 2009, organisers will offer a discounted early bird price starting at £59.00 for Sprint Distance and £65.00 for Olympic Distance.
