One month to go until world’s top triathletes descend on Nottingham

British Triathlon is marking the milestone by inviting the city’s residents down to Victoria Embankment on Saturday 2 September to be part of an action-packed family fun day, as the British Triathlon Mixed Relay Cup prepares to make its debut.

The event is set to see 20 British and international triathlon quartets go head-to-head in a battle to be named the event’s inaugural champions and be the very first to lift the Cup. Olympic Silver Medallist, Jonny Brownlee has already confirmed his name on the roster, with full team’s due to be announced later this month.

From 9am, the Spectator Village on Meadows Recreation Ground will be in full flow, packed with stalls, activities and areas to relax and enjoy the action. For those wanting to test their skills, the event has teamed up with ParkLives to offer a Sports Zone jam-packed with activities for all to have a go at. With archery, badminton and tennis amongst the eight sports on offer, participants taking part in five will return home with a Sports Festival Medal for their achievements.

Budding young triathletes can seek out how to become the next sporting star with British Triathlon’s Skills School, or take their first steps in the sport with the Triathlon Trust. On the day, all activities mentioned are free of charge, with something to offer every member of the family and sporting taste.

The City of Nottingham Triathlon also gets underway from 9am, with hundreds of triathlon beginners taking the chance to compete across much of the same course as the elites. Once across the line they have chance to relax and refuel, with a range of food and drink options available on site to keep them going the whole day long.

Come 2pm and it’s time to find your spot to soak up the atmosphere of fast and furious mixed relay racing. Either settle by the big screen within the Spectator Village or wander along the embankment for a course-side position, either way there is guaranteed viewing of some of the finest triathlon talent from across the globe. For those seeking a front-row seat and to be the first to see who crosses the finish line, limited grandstand tickets remain, starting at £10.

Cllr Dave Trimble, Nottingham City Council Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said: “Just one month until we have a chance to see Olympians taking part in this brand-new event in the City.

“The Mixed Relay Triathlon event is now event more crucial for competitors as it’s become an event for the Tokyo Olympics. The day promises to have something for everyone – there are races for those who want to try out the course, the chance to sit in the Grandstand and see all the action, and the chance to try different sports and activities in the Spectator Village. It promises to be a really exciting day of sports action and entertainment.

Jack Buckner, British Triathlon Chief Executive, added: “The British Triathlon Mixed Relay Cup will not only showcase incredible triathlon talent, but truly offers something for the whole family. Whether you’re looking to dip your toes into the sport, or spend the day soaking up the atmosphere, we look forward to seeing the city of Nottingham out in force to support in September.
