ITU opens bidding for Multisport World Championship events
ITU has opened bidding for three ITU World Multisport World Championship events, in addition to all Multisport races in 2016. The opportunities include:
- 2014 Winter Triathlon World Championships
- 2015 Winter Triathlon World Championships
- 2015 Cross Triathlon World Championships
- All Multisport events for 2016
“Multisports are integral to the growth of triathlon, as they promote triathlon’s key messages to more people,” said ITU President and IOC Member Marisol Casado. “Hosting a world championship event has proven to be a great opportunity for cities to build awareness of their community with an event that can generate a financial surplus, while also promoting a healthy lifestyle.”
Cities interested in hosting an event must submit their bid prior to ITU by August 15, 2013. The winning cities will be announced on September 16.
Please note, bid applications for ITU Long Distance Triathlon or Duathlon events that are not a world championship race will be accepted until 31 October of the preceding year.
