Weekend Preview 11-12 August

9th Aug 2018 | Written by Carolyn Reid

We’ve got a massive weekend of Triathlon in Glasgow as Europe’s best triathletes get ready to race in Strathclyde Park!

The racing kicks off today with the Elite Women’s Final at 13:15. Scotland’s Beth Potter races in the British team with defending European Champion Jess Learmonth and 2016 European Champion India Lee! The race is Potter’s first Olympic distance event so make sure you get down to Strathclyde Park or tune in on BBC to cheer her on!

On Friday, the Elite Men’s Final takes place at 15:45 with Scotland’s Commonwealth Bronze Medallist Marc Austin racing on home turf! Austin is joined by Barclay Izzard and Alistair Brownlee who will be hoping to repeat his 2014 Commonwealth Games result at Strathclyde Park!

Completing the Elite races at the Championships is the Mixed Team Relay. The team for Saturday’s race won’t be confirmed until after the individual races and will feature at least one athlete who is not taking part in the individual races.

Also taking place on Saturday are the Age Group Sprint Championships. Starting at 07:00, 615 British Age Group athlete’s will compete to be crowned European Champion. The list of Scottish members racing at Strathclyde Park is listed below.

Finally, almost 400 competitors will flock to Strathclyde Park to take part in Tri in the Park festival of participation! The event will provide short, have-a-go events under the ‘GO TRI’ brand, offering affordable and easy access events to local people. As well as short distance individual and family triathlon events (swim-bike-run) there will be duathlon (run-bike-run), aquathlon (swim-run) and aquabike (swim-bike) races.
