Combining swimming, cycling and running, Triathlon is a true test of fitness, tactics and endurance. Athletes will jostle for position in the open water, transition to the bike for an arduous cycling leg, then they switch to running for the final discipline. Alongside the men’s and women’s races there is a mixed relay and two Para triathlon competitions. At Birmingham 2022 the Para events are for PTVI athletes, a classification for athletes with a visual impairment.
Where: The event starts and ends in Sutton Park in Sutton Coldfield, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, with the bike course also taking in the surrounding streets of Royal Sutton Coldfield and Boldmere.
