Blenheim Triathlon, the second of five highlight programmes featuring the British Triathlon Super Series will be broadcast this Sunday, 27 June, on Channel 4 at 8.30am.

The 30-minute show will highlight the impressive victories of Tim Don and reigning Super Series champion Jodie Stimpson.

In domestic action this weekend, the Tri UK Shropshire Triathlon takes place on Sunday 27 June, providing age-group athletes with their final chance to qualify for the GE Great Britain Age Group Team at the 2010 Budapest ITU Triathlon World Championships.

The event is in its 19th year, and has over 400 competitors on the start list, proving that the event is as popular as ever.

All the competitors will race over the standard triathlon distance including a 1500m open water swim in the Mere, followed by a 40k bike and a 10k run around the countryside of the north Wales border.

The Tri UK Shropshire Triathlon is also the second event of the 2010 British Triathlon Ranking Series.

The first race of the British Triathlon Ranking Series took place at Little Beaver Triathlon in May, and following Tri UK Shropshire Triathlon the series will progress to Worthing Triathlon (16 July), Autoglass Bedford Classic (15 August) and Bala Standard Distance (12 September).
