Windsor entry open 1 October

On your marks…

Human Race has informed us that entry to the 2010 running of the Nokia Windsor Triathlon will open on Thursday 1 October 2009. The date for next year’s race is 13 June.

Windsor traditionally sells out before the clocks have had chance to leap forward at the end of March, and has been showered with accolades over its illustrious history.

It’s been awarded the BTA’s ‘Event of the Year’ a remarkable seven times. These awards, voted for by the British Triathlon Association’s members, place the event as without equal in Great Britain: it has claimed six BTA awards in the last seven years, including scooping the double of BTA Event of the Year as well as the inaugural 220 Triathlon Magazine award for Race of the Year.

“The Nokia Royal Windsor Triathlon has the full backing of the whole town and with over 400 support crew, marshals and safety personnel in attendance, you will be guaranteed a superb event again this summer,” says John Lunt, Event Director. Seen on television for the last four years, the race is expected to be back on TV screens again this year. Several thousand spectators will pack the streets to watch the race on the warm summer morning.

There will be an extensive pre-race expo during race registration. Leading triathlon equipment suppliers will be on hand to give advice and cater for your every need!

If you have never been to Windsor, the triathlon weekend will provide a terrific opportunity to see this historic town. Visit the 900 year old Castle and the world famous Eton College. With plenty of places to eat and shop, lots for everyone to see and do, including Legoland just around the corner, bring the family and enjoy a great weekend away. If you are a regular to the race, then you will know the format ~ great food, great T-shirt, great atmosphere and a great race!
