What did last year's competitors say?
Charlotte Taylor of Spalding Tri club said: “I enjoyed the course a lot and was particularly pleased with the win as this is my first ever Standard Distance race. The support around the docks was fantastic.”
Local club, Mersey Tri Club, had 85 representatives in their ‘local race’. Jonathan Fairhurst, 41 from West Kirby on the Wirral commented: “The atmosphere was brilliant. Most of my family came down. Racing in club colours on the home course meant you were getting shouted with encouragement, it gives you a massive lift racing in Liverpool.”
The event will be a festival of the sport as Liverpool also hosts the British Standard Distance Triathlon Championships for age-group athletes as well as the Elite Championships for youth, junior and senior triathletes. Many of Britain’s reigning world champion paratriathletes will also be in action in the British Paratriathlon Championships.
With so much world-class racing and the opportunity for Home Nation members to experience the iconic course in Liverpool, the event is set to be a great day of triathlon action for all the family.
