British Triathlon has announced that the bidding process for the 2011 British Triathlon Age Group Major Events Programme is now open.
Event organisers from all corners of England, Scotland and Wales are invited to submit a bid to host one of the eight prestigious British Championship events or one of three World or European age group qualification events.
Ian Braid, British Triathlon Director for Major and National Events is excited about the 2011 process commenting: "British Triathlon wants to continue to raise the profile of our sport and the best showcase for this is through our major events.
“We want British Triathlon events to be distributed across Great Britain, giving even more people the opportunity to achieve their personal triathlon challenges. I would therefore like to see applications for our major events in 2011 from all parts of England, Scotland and Wales. We will be working with successful event organisers to build on the increasing interest in our fast moving, dynamic and modern sport and develop a sustainable infrastructure to meet the demand in this London Olympiad."
The bidding is open to all event organisers, both non-profit and commercial who feel their events are well-organised, safe, high quality competitions for triathletes.
