The Accenture British Triathlon Mixed Relay Cup


Accenture British Triathlon Mixed Relay Cup 2018

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.
