This weekend’s event at Blenheim Palace is widely considered the opening event of the Triathlon season. As a result, it always draws a large number of athletes of all abilities. This year will be no different.
As well as attracting thousands of first time triathletes and fundraisers, the event is also the first in the British Super Series. This means that there’s a strong elite field expected. Athletes expected to start include: Mark Buckingham, Lestyn Harrett, Emma Pallant, Alice Sharpe and Sophie Coldwell.
On Sunday, Blenheim will also host a slightly alternative race which will see three of the top Formula 1 teams go head to head in an off-road challenge. Mercedes AMG, Red Bull and Force India will each have three relay teams representing at the start line. This event is likely to be a lot of fun and made all the more entertaining due to the team’s fierce rivalries.
We wish everyone competing at the weekend the best of luck. Enjoy it!
