The British Aquathlon Championships are set to take place this weekend, with over 200 competitors all racing to win the coveted British titles at the BRAT Aquathlon on Saturday 19 May 2012.
The event is the second of eight British Age-Group Championships in 2012 and will see athletes race in the picturesque setting of the West Midlands Water Ski Centre. Athletes will embark on a fast 750m swim before a 5km run around the perimeter of the water ski lake. The run will be a flat two-lap traffic free run with only a short incline to trouble the competitors.
In addition to the British Age-Group Championships, the event also doubles as the British Elite Youth and Junior Aquathlon Championships, the second race of the 2012 British Triathlon Junior Super Series.
Recent winner of the European junior triathlon title, Georgia Taylor-Brown will compete aiming to continue the form shown in Eilat and get valuable points on the leaderboard in the British Triathlon Youth and Junior Super Series.
Fellow British Triathlon Olympic Talent Squad athletes Sophie Coldwell, Sian Rainsley, Nicole Raymond and Ellie Walton will join Georgia in the elite women’s race. In the men’s race, Miles Burton the current leader of the youth standings will compete aiming to make it two wins in succession having won the British Elite Youth Duathlon Championships in March. He will be joined on the start line by fellow squad member Iestyn Harrett.
The event is organised by BRAT Clubs, with more information available on www.3dtri.co.uk.
