Welcome to the ITU World Triathlon Abu Dhabi presented by Daman – the official start of the ITU’s global triathlon season right here in the UAE’s capital.

The up-coming event will take place in March 2021. And what a weekend we have in store! 

You will witness 110 of the world’s best elite athletes go head-to-head in both the individual sprint races and the exciting Mixed Relay format. As an Olympic year, and with precious Olympic qualifying points up for grabs, you can expect to see the best of the best take their marks on the start line, led by reigning world champions, Katie Zaferes and Vincent Luis.

But these are not the only elite races scheduled for this weekend. For the first time in Abu Dhabi’s history, we will host an Elite Para World Cup – welcoming 80 of the most inspiring para athletes from around the world, racing for Paralympic qualifying points. 

Alongside the elite races, we will welcome 3,000 amateur triathletes and duathletes of all ages and abilities, across 19 different race categories – once again marking the ITU World Triathlon Abu Dhabi presented by Daman as the largest and most inclusive triathlon in the Middle East.

And that’s not all – our Event Village and fun-packed entertainment schedule will keep fans off the race-course delighted. 

As Abu Dhabi looks forward to hosting the ITU World Championship in 2022, the time is now to get involved in this wonderful sport. Whether you are a triathlon fan, a volunteer, a technical official, a spectator or simply looking for a great weekend out with your family.

Stay tuned – the 2021 event dates will be announced in September.
