British Triathlon has launched a new website, www.britishtriathlonsuperseries.com, ahead of the forthcoming British Triathlon Super Series, which will see races being held in Strathclyde Country Park, Blenheim, Windsor and London before the final race of the season at Parc Bryn Bach in Wales.
The website gives elite and age-group triathletes along with spectators the most up-to-date news about the races, the athletes, ranking positions whilst also providing an information hub for Age Group specific Super Series races. For the first time, the first four races sitting within the British Triathlon Super Series will be incorporating an Age Group element, which will allow athletes of all abilities to compete across a range of distances.
Strathclyde Country Park, triathlon venue for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, will be hosting the opening leg of the Super Series for a third consecutive year on the 23 May. This year’s race has also attained ITU Triathlon European Cup status for the first time.
The series will then progress to Blenheim for the popular annual triathlon set in the grounds of Blenheim Palace, the race will be held over the weekend of 5/6 June. This is followed the subsequent weekend, 13 June, with the Nokia Windsor Triathlon. August 7/8 will see the London Triathlon play host to the fourth event in the Series, where the Elite athletes could be joined by up to 14,000 participants.
