Liverpool Triathlon becomes 5150 European Championship

July's Liverpool 5150 set to be Euro Champs

Now in its fourth year, the Liverpool Triathlon has a growing reputation as a great race on a fast course.

Its credentials have now been recognised with the event being honoured as the first 5150 European Championships, to be held on 1 July 2012.

While still offering racing for athletes of all abilities, there will be a stronger field than ever competing for the European 5150 title and the opportunity to qualify as an age group athlete to the Hy-Vee, the world’s richest triathlon with over $1m prize money on offer for both pros and age group athletes.

The city centre course takes in the iconic landmarks of Liverpool including the Liver Building, Echo Arena and the Albert Docks and with a number of events having moved due to the Olympics, Liverpool 5150 European Championships is ideally placed to offer athletes a closed road race in the summer.
