The Accenture British Triathlon Mixed Relay Cup, which sees British Triathlon’s Performance Centre squads from across Great Britain go head-to-head in the sport’s newest discipline, will take place in conjunction with the AJ Bell London Triathlon, organised by IMG on Saturday 4 August. Teams of two men and two women will join to form a mixed relay team, each completing a mini-triathlon before the iconic ‘tagging’ of their next teammate to take over. From a deep water start in the London Docklands, athletes will each complete a 300m swim, before taking on a 5.6km bike and 1.4km run around London’s Excel Centre.
The inaugural event took place last September on Nottingham’s Victoria Embankment, with the inclusion of five international teams in the line-up. Team Leeds I were crowned champions, Loughborough I took the runner-up spot, with Canada making it onto the podium to claim bronze.
This years course in London is designed to create a brilliant spectator experience, with the event completely free to to come along and watch.
