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.
