The British Triathlon Super Series returns in 2012 for the fourth consecutive year in what promises to be an exciting season for triathlon in the UK.
 
The 2011 British Triathlon Super Series, which was won by British athletes Aaron Harris and, for the third year running, Jodie Stimpson, will get underway with the GE Blenheim Triathlon over the weekend of the 9/10 June 2012.
 
The British Triathlon Super Series then heads to the Toshiba Windsor Triathlon (17 June) before returning to London for the GE Canary Wharf Triathlon.
 
The city-centre venue made a stunning debut in 2011, and once more London’s premier business district will be transformed in to an elite triathlon venue for a night of racing on 28 June 2012. This will be the last chance for triathlon fans to watch world-class triathlon racing before the London 2012 Olympic Games and the triathlon events on Saturday 4 and Tuesday 7 August 2012.
 
After Canary Wharf, the series takes a short break resuming on 2 September at the GE Strathclyde Park Triathlon, the tri venue for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
 
The final stop on the series will see athletes head back to the capital for the Virgin Active London Triathlon on 22/23 September. At this event, the overall British Triathlon Super Series winners will be crowned champions and will take the official GB No1 ranking.
