What is the Accenture Mixed Team Challenge?
British Triathlon and official partner Accenture have teamed up to launch an exciting new team event series for the 2018 season; the Accenture Mixed Team Challenge. The new mass participation triathlon format, which will take place across seven locations nationwide, demonstrates Accenture and British Triathlon’s commitment to champion involvement in the sport.
The Accenture Mixed Team Challenge is open to all ages and abilities, inspiring people to get out of the office and into their kit. Participants in Canary Wharf must take part as a four-person mixed gender team with each athlete completing a mini-triathlon before tagging the next team member.
The idea was devised to build upon the excitement of the Mixed Relay triathlon discipline being added to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic roster, in which men and women will compete alongside each other on a quest to collect the very first Olympic gold medal of its kind.
The Accenture Mixed Team Challenge holds true to the principals of mixed relay, providing people with the opportunity to take part in an inclusive, mixed gender and fun team activity. The event series has teamwork at its heart and offers the opportunity for both beginner and seasoned triathletes to team up and compete for top prizes.
The events hosting the Accenture Mixed Team Challenge
The Accenture Mixed Team Challenge will make its first stop at the Northumberland Triathlon on Sunday 3 June. Fast forward a week and it will make two appearances on the ITU World Triathlon Series circuit, at the Accenture World Triathlon Mixed Relay Nottingham on Thursday 7 June and the ITU World Triathlon Leeds on Sunday 10 June, where the crowds will be lining the streets across both cities and participants will warm up the course ahead of the elite athletes.
After a month’s rest, the Accenture Mixed Team Challenge will be hosted by the Salford Triathlon on Sunday 29 July, before it ventures south to become part of the AJ Bell London Triathlon, the UK’s largest triathlon event on the first Saturday in August. Glasgow, the most northerly stop on the nationwide journey, will host the Challenge during the same month.
Come September, the series is set to reach its dramatic finale at Canary Wharf on Wednesday 5 September. Here, participants will have a rare opportunity to take on the elite mixed relay racing format, where quartets will go head-to-head; each member completing a mini triathlon before tagging their teammate to do the same in the ultimate battle of the teams.
