Holten in the run for the European Championships Triathlon in 2009
The Holten Triathlon Foundation committee has submitted their nomination for the organization of the 2009 European Championships Triathlon Olympic distance. In 2009 Holten will celebrate its 25-year anniversary of the Holten Triathlon. The European Championship in Holten would crown it all.
A bidbook has been developed to motivate the nomination. This book will be presented at the headquarters of the European Triathlon Union (ETU) in Budapest, before the end of May.
The slogan of the bidbook is “Celebrating 25 years of ambition”. With the support of the council of Rijssen-Holten, NOC*NSF and the Dutch Triathlon Foundation the bidbook outlines reasons why the European Championship should be organized in Holten.
Holten will probably present their bid at the ETU conference in Copenhagen at the 27th and 28th of June, just as the other candidates. At this conference the winner will be awarded and Holten has a good change of victory. Representatives from Holten will be at the conference to represent the Holten Triathlon Foundation.
