“PARATRIATHLON - TRI1 CATEGORY
Due to an inappropriate surface of some segments of the run course and the impossibility to find alternative solutions, ITU announces with regrets that there will be no TRI1 category in the 2013 Belfort ITU Long Distance Triathlon World Championships.
TR1 Paratriathletes are invited to compete at the 2013 Barcelona ETU Challenge Middle Distance Triathlon European Championships.
We apologize for this unfortunate circumstance. Be assured that the development of paratriathlon remains a high priority for the ITU and we will do our best for this not to happen again in the future.”
