GB Age-Group Team out in force in Madrid


This weekend will see British Triathlon members once again pull on the GB trisuit as they represent Great Britain over the sprint and standard distance at Europe Triathlon Championships Madrid.

Heading into the racing in Spain, Great Britain have amassed the most amount of Age-Group medals from the races so far this year at 96.

This is made up of 37 golds, 30 silvers, and 29 bronzes, and there will be plenty more podium opportunities for British athletes in Madrid as athletes race across the age groups in both sprint and standard.

Owen and Lindsy James celebrated their wedding anniversary by both becoming duathlon gold medallists in the 45-49 age group at the World Triathlon Multisport Championship in Ibiza in May. Read their story here.

The standard distance action will take place on Saturday 3 June, with the course keeping athletes within the picturesque city park of Parque Casa de Campo.

Athletes will start off with a 1,500m swim in Lago de la Casa de Campo, before heading out for two laps on the bike course totalling 37.2km. The three-lap 10km run will draw the racing to its conclusion, with European champions being crowned.

The sprint distance racing will be held on Sunday 4 June, and the course will have a very similar footprint to the standard distance racing the day before.

Sprint racers will compete over a 750m swim, 20.8km bike and 5km run, with one lap battled over for each discipline.

The main difference to the standard distance is the run leg, which will take place just outside the park and see athletes run past the Palacio Real de Madrid, the city’s royal palace. The finish line will be outside the palace next to Plaza Oriente.

The youngest male category (18-19) in the standard distance championships will be an all British battle between Sean Petty and Aaron Quinn, whilst seven of the eight women in the 20-24 category will be British.

At the opposite end of the age spectrum, Daphne Belt and Peggy Crome will go head-to-head in the female 80-84 age group over the sprint distance. The sprint men’s 80-84 category will also feature five Brits on the start line.
