World Triathlon adds more events to the 2021 season calendar
With Members of World Triathlon getting ready for the upcoming Congress, we would like to announce further dates and events that have been added to the schedule for the ever-growing calendar of the 2021 season.
World Triathlon Cups
The postponed Miyazaki 2020 World Cup, due to take place last October, has now been added to the 2021 calendar, with the Japanese city hosting a World Triathlon Cup twice in the same year: first on March 20-21, and then on October 23-24. Addition to that, Weihai (China) has been confirmed for the weekend of September 25-26.
This leaves the 2021 World Triathlon Cup calendar with the following events:
Miyazaki (Japan), March 20-21
Huatulco (MEX), April 17-18
Osaka (Japan), May 8-9
Arzachena (Italy), May 29-30
Haeundae (South Korea), June 3-4
Karlovy Vary (Czech Republic), September 11-12
Weihai (China), September 25-26
Miyazaki (Japan), October 23-24
Tongyeong (South Korea), October 30-31
Other events will likely be added to the 2021 calendar in the upcoming weeks, with dates still pending, including a mix of new cities and returning to the circuit ones. Unfortunately, some events that have been part of the World Cup calendar for many years, like Mooloolaba (Australia), New Plymouth (New Zealand) or Madrid (Spain), won’t be able to take place in 2021, with the pandemic effect still making an impact in some organisers.
Like for the World Triathlon Cups, we have been able to secure some new events for the 2021 season, thanks to the commitment from our member National Federations and Local Organizing Committees. Miyazaki is ready to offer opportunities for Para triathletes both in March and October. In addition Alanya and Alhandra have been also confirmed for the latter period of the calendar.
The following events have been confirmed for the 2021 season:
Miyazaki (Japan), March 20-21, World Triathlon Para Cup
Milan (Italy), May 8, World Triathlon Para World Championships
Yokohama (Japan), May 15, World Triathlon Para Series
Leeds (UK), June 5-6, World Triathlon Para Series
Besancon (France), June 12-13, World Triathlon Para Cup
A Coruna (Spain), June 20, World Triathlon Para Cup
Montreal (Canada), June 24, World Triathlon Para Series
Alanya (Turkey), October 1, World Triathlon Para Cup
Miyazaki (Japan), October 23-24, World Triathlon Para Cup
Alhandra (Portugal), October 30-31, World Triathlon Para Cup
World Triathlon is working closely with several National Federations and event organisers to have more events added to the calendar in 2021
It has been recently confirmed that Asiago will return to the Winter Triathlon circuit on the 19th February 2021, this time with a World Cup. Another opportunity to our winter lovers to enjoy the great hospitality of the Italian mountains.
The continental Calendars for Africa, America, Asia and Europe have also been updated in the recent weeks, with more events expected still to be added to their calendars.
