Event Village

Triathlon is set to come alive in Roundhay Park’s Event Village

The Columbia Threadneedle World Triathlon Leeds has launched a new action packed Event Village in Roundhay Park.

The Event Village will provide a central location for the local community and sports fans to soak up the action, cheering on both friends and family and, come Sunday afternoon, the world's best. In close proximity to the transition zone, the Event Village enables participants to use Roundhay Park as a base for the whole event.

The Event Village will include the following:

  • Clubhouse, where participants can register, get any last minute information and wind down with post-race massage. Plus, there's changing space available too, pre and post race.
  • Official Event Expo, in which to browse for a range of triathlon and non-sporting products.
  • Club Zone, a designated area for triathlon clubs to call home, putting them at the heart of the action.
  • Activity Zone, which hosts a range of fun multi-sport activity for all the family, including Brownlee Foundation’s Kids ‘Dryathlon’ and Leeds City Council’s Breeze programme with their fun inflatables. 
  • Radio Aire Family Zone, the perfect place to chill out with the little ones.
  • Mechanical support on hand to deal with any last-minute bike tweaks.
  • A big screen to watch the action all weekend, with live finish line footage from Sunday's age-group races in Millennium Square and elite coverage and commentary come Sunday afternoon.
  • A host of food and drink concessions and amenities.

Plus, if you are aiming to win a coveted British Championship Title, the medal presentations will all take place in Roundhay Park, in betweek the two elite races.

Club Zone

British Triathlon has listened to its members and created a designated Club Zone as part of this year’s Event Village, offering affiliated triathlon clubs their own area in Roundhay Park. The Club Zone is located in the heart of the village, allowing you to be at the centre of the action all weekend.
