AJ Bell World Triathlon Leeds 2020 Virtual
Challenge 20-26 July 2020

Sign Up Now

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.

Your Virtual Challenge Awaits!

With triathlon events on hold until the 25th of July, we knew everyone would be missing that finish line feeling, so we decided to create a virtual challenge so everyone can have a great experience from home, virtually.

Take on a duathlon over the course of this week using Strava to record your activity times until you’ve completed the challenge distance. Everyone can get involved with three duathlon distances to choose from and a children’s category for those aged 8-14.
