The Professional Triathletes Organisation (PTO) have finally announced their full calendar for the newly launched T100 Triathlon World Tour, a race series that will be run in collaboration with World Triathlon.

The eight-stop series will travel to three continents and take in some of the world’s most iconic cities such as Miami, London and Dubai with an international line-up of 40 leading professional triathletes contracted to race this season.

Top athletes such as IRONMAN World Champions Lucy Charles-Barclay and Sam Laidlow are set to race the series, in addition to some of the biggest names in the sport like two-time Olympic Champion Alistair Brownlee.

This year, the series will begin in Miami on March 9 and finish with the Grand Final at a soon-to-be announced Middle East location at the end of November, where the men and women’s world champion will be crowned.

The T100 Triathlon World Tour includes the following races:

  1. 9-10 March – Miami T100 
  2. 13-14 April – Singapore T100 
  3. June TBA – California T100 
  4. 27-28 July – London T100
  5. 28-29 Sept – Ibiza T100
  6. 19-20 Oct – Lake Las Vegas T100
  7. 16-17 Nov – Dubai T100
  8. 29-30 Nov – Grand Final – location to be announced soon

The contracted athletes will compete in a minimum of five races as well as the Grand Final. Out of the 40 athletes awarded these contracts, 32 were down to their PTO World Ranking in 2023 and an additional eight were given to athletes with great past results or future potential.

The PTO and World Triathlon will also award individual wildcards for each event, with contracted athletes who are set to qualify for the Olympics being afforded reduced racing obligations.

“A powerful brand as well as a unique format”

The evolution of the PTO Tour to the T100 Triathlon World Tour follows the PTO’s partnership agreement with World Triathlon in August 2023, which granted it the title of “the official World Championship tour of long distance triathlon”.

PTO CEO Sam Renouf said that now was the right time to rebrand the Tour, as the organisation aimed to bring triathlon into the mainstream with new opportunities for everyone in the sport.

“This was the right moment for us to introduce a more consumer facing brand. As we’ve developed the races and the broadcast product over the past three years, we’ve continued to listen to feedback from all parties, including our broadcast partners, the media, fans and, of course, the athletes who co-own the organisation.

“It was clear that we needed to be more explicit about this being a triathlon world tour as well as hero the exciting 100km distance, which continues to mark us out and deliver compelling racing.

“With races being known as the Singapore T100 or Ibiza T100, we believe it will help establish T100 as both a powerful brand as well as a unique format.

“This will create more opportunities to attract new host cities, commercial sponsors and engage amateurs and mass participants who we will be performing at each of our stops this year.”

Great news for amateur racers

Alongside the professional tour, amateurs will have the opportunity to race at six of the T100 Triathlon World Tour stages in 2024, including: Singapore, London, Ibiza, Lake Las Vegas, Dubai and the Grand Final.

In partnership with World Triathlon, certain stages will feature championship designations with the chance to represent your country under the membership of the athlete’s respective National Federation.

“Next level racing and a ‘major event atmosphere’ were two of the things the 6,000 amateur athletes who took part in Singapore last year called out,” said Renouf.

“So, alongside the professional races we’ll be running mass participation opportunities at most of the events. Registration is open on the PTO website and we look forward to welcoming all those who want to get involved.”
