We are extremely excited and proud to be hosting the South West Regional Standard Distance Championships at Bournemouth International Triathlon!

Event Director Kelly Wickens said “This is brilliant news, Bournemouth International Triathlon is a well established event steeped in history. The Town is perfect to host a championship event with its top-class beach and abundance of excellent hotels, making it an awesome weekend for the whole family” Kelly added “Bournemouth is a super fast course with a quick bike route and a flat run so great for that PB hunting or ideal for a first timer”.

Ashley Hutchinson, Chair of Triathlon England South West announced, “The number of applications we received this year was higher than ever, and it was clear that all that had applied had out some real time and effort into their applications. Each committee member voted on their favourite application for each distance independently and I’m told it was the toughest decision on placing the two regional championships we ever faced. I would like to thank all applicants for making this process tough, it just goes to show the standard of racing in the Southwest is high!

However it was clear to me we have two stand out races as our hosts this year and I am delighted to welcome Challenging Events Bournemouth international Triathlon (Sept 8th)  in hosting their first regional championships and I look forward to hopefully racing them, or cheering you all on! “

We expect entries to sell quickly as lots of South West members will be keen to become their age group champ!
