Take part in Leeds 2020, virtually
With triathlon events on hold for the time being, we thought we’d create a virtual challenge – it’s the least we could do.
Giving you the chance to take a duathlon, this virtual event will use Strava to record your times and activity over the course of the event week until you’ve completed the challenge.
If you’re already signed up to Leeds, entry is free. If you’re new to the event then you can take part for just £5.00.
A 2020 medal
up for grabs
With a medal for all participants along with a downloadable certificate, all you need to do is complete one of the distances on bike and on foot within the challenge window.
How it works
1. Sign Up - Register
Register today and choose between either the standard, sprint or GO TRI distances between 20-26 July 2020.
We are using Strava to record your cycling and running activity so we can tell how you're doing as the event week progresses.
3. Smash it
Get prepared over the coming weeks so you're ready to hit the ground running during event week.
Compete in these Distances
To help make the virtual event as accessible as the real life AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds, there are three distances available for you to choose from.
Standard – 40km bike and 15km run
Sprint – 20km bike and 7.5km run
GO TRI – 10km bike and 3.75km run
