Brighton and Hove Triathlon 2020 now open for entries

Next year’s Brighton and Hove Triathlon has been confirmed as the weekend of 12-13 September 2020 and entries are now open at www.brightonandhovetriathlon.com

The event will return to Hove Lawns where it will continue to offer the popular kid’s Scootathlon and the Children’s Triathlon on 12 September before the main adult triathlon takes place on Sunday 13 September.

This year was the biggest participation to date with over 1600 competitors and organisers are hoping to exceed that next year.

Race Director John Lunt said, “Brighton is a top destination for sport with huge participation in many events. In a year which will bring us the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and the ITU World Championships in Edmonton, Canada, all eyes will be on the sporting world and the huge benefits it brings to people’s lives.”

“I’m delighted we can open up entries for 2020 race so soon after the sell-out 2019 event. We are hoping for over 2000 athletes to come race in Brighton. We had perfect conditions, a hot sunny day, no wind and beautiful flat calm sea.”

John continued, “We aim to make the Triathlon accessible to everyone including novices, first timers, veterans of the sport, disabled and LGBTQ. We are fully inclusive and this is why so many people enjoy competing with us at Brighton. We have participants from all over the world which obviously also brings a lot of business to Brighton and Hove.”

“We had 120 children race in the scootathlon and we also had 167 children compete in the children’s triathlon. With more and more women taking up the sport of triathlon there were 30% of women competing this year and a further 30% of the field were first timers.”

MP for Hove and Portslade said, Peter Kyle said, “The Brighton & Hove Triathlon is a real family event and it’s great to have it based on Hove Lawns. To see three year olds through to 87 year olds giving it their best in an all-inclusive event really fits well with the spirit of our city. Congratulations to everyone who took part and who organised this wonderful event – I’ll see you in 2020!”
