The E World Triathlon Championships are heading to London on 13 April

World Triathlon is pleased to announce that the Executive Board has approved the inclusion of the E World Triathlon Championships powered by Zwift in the 2024 calendar. Formerly known as Arena Games and delivered in partnership with supertri, the event will now take place over a single day of fast and furious hybrid racing at London Aquatics Centre on 13 April, with all the action shown live on TriathlonLive.tv.

The 2024 edition of the E World Triathlon Championships will up the pressure for the pros even further, with 60 athletes competing in a dramatic one-day World Championship event. There will be no margin for error as a series of morning heats will see only 10 men and 10 women make it through to the evening finals and a chance to lift the E World Triathlon Championship titles in front of a packed crowd at the iconic venue.

“There is innovation at the very heart of this intense race format, and this new look and one-day schedule for 2024 will bring that to the fore once more when we return to what will be another packed London Aquatic Centre,” said World Triathlon President and IOC member Marisol Casado.

“This venue, and the crowds we have seen raising the roof over the years, underline exactly why this is the perfect stage for a one-day E World Triathlon Championship, and there is no doubt that the athletes will produce another dose of thrilling entertainment for the spectators both in east London and watching around the globe on 13 April as they chase the world titles.”

The heats will consist of two stages of swim-bike-run with a short break in between and a pursuit start for stage 2. The finals will be contested across the full E World Triathlon Championship format (Swim – Bike – Run // Run – Bike – Swim // Swim – Bike – Run) with a pursuit start in stage 3.

As well as the first prize of $7,500 and the title of E World Triathlon Champion, the event also contributes points to the World Triathlon rankings. Race entries can be made through the athlete’s National Federation in the usual manner.
