This new event concept has been created following recommendations from the 2011 British Triathlon Competition Review, which cited the need to raise the game of British Championships across all participant categories to make them aspirational events for people to take part in.

British Triathlon has worked hard to develop a single weekend event where elite, paratriathlon and age-group athletes can join together over one festival weekend to race for British Championship medals.

Additionally in 2013, the British Age-Group Standard Distance Triathlon Championships will also act as the final qualification race for athletes across Great Britain looking to qualify for the Great Britain Age-Group Team, which will compete in London as part of the World Triathlon Grand Final London in September.

The event, which will take place over the weekend of 13 and 14 July 2013, is expected to attract thousands of athletes competing for the following British Championships:

·         British Elite Sprint Triathlon Championships
·         British Youth & Junior Triathlon Championships
·         British Paratriathlon Championships
·         British Age-Group Standard Distance Triathlon Championships, incorporating the final ITU Standard Distance Age-Group Triathlon World Championships qualification event for the Great Britain Age-Group Team

British Triathlon has also committed to provide Home Nation Members priority access to the event, ensuring those who wish to attempt to qualify for the Great Britain Age-Group Team for the ITU Standard Distance Age-Group Triathlon World Championships in London have the maximum opportunity to do so. All entry details will be announced next month with Home Nation members receiving advance notice of the entry process via email and an exclusive entry period before the event is opened up to non member entry.

The event is being organised by British Triathlon in partnership with Upsolut Sports UK with the support of Liverpool City Council.
