ITU World Duathlon Championships in Ottawa - registration available without pre-qualifying


We’ve had a great piece of information passed on to us from Newfoundland’s own Triathlon Guru, Scott Ledrew:
As many of our members may be aware, Ottawa will be hosting the ITU World Duathlon Championships this August after Segovia Spain pulled out as the host City earlier this year.

As a result of this last minute change, Newfoundland and Labrador athletes now have the ability to register for the event without having to pre-qualify in one of the selection races.  

Those athletes wishing to race or participate  in the World Championships, to be held in Ottawa this August, must register  by this Friday, March 8th in order to get a spot on the team.

What a fantastic opportunity to experience a World Championship event within close reach of home.  The only catch is that there are two days remaining to claim a bib!

I hope a number of you decide to take on the challenge and come back with some Team Canada swag.  The World Championship events are a memorable experience and this one will prove to be easy on the wallet and on vacation days!

Remember, sign up is only open until tomorrow.

Happy Training,
