Columbia Threadneedle World Triathlon: Less than 100 days to go

The inaugural Columbia Threadneedle World Triathlon Leeds, 11–12 June 2016, represents the pinnacle of triathlon competition in the UK, providing recreational triathletes with a unique opportunity to compete on the same course as the world’s best.

Following in the footsteps of the unforgettable 2014 Tour de France Grand Départ in Leeds and Yorkshire, this event is hoping to attract thousands of spectators to watch both the amateurs and the professionals – including home heroes Ali and Jonny Brownlee who will be competing in their last event on home soil before the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

On Sunday, June 12, 2016, over 5,000 triathletes of all levels of ability will compete on the unique ‘point to point’ course with two separate transition areas.

Starting with an open water swim in the glorious Roundhay Park, the bike leg will see participants complete laps in and around Leeds city centre before completing a testing run course and crossing the finish line in the city centre.

Following the amateurs, it’s the turn of the world’s best triathletes to take to the stage.

Contested over the Olympic distance with a more technical, city centre-based bike course, both races are guaranteed to deliver a thrilling showcase of endurance and strategy in front of thousands of Leeds’ sports-loving residents, creating a unique Yorkshire atmosphere lining the course.
