World Triathlon Abu Dhabi is back!
The World Triathlon Series returns to the Capital’s iconic sporting destination, Yas Island, from 5 – 6 November 2021 marking the 8th and final stop on the global triathlon calendar.
110 of the world’s best elite triathletes will descend on the Capital for World Triathlon Abu Dhabi, with an athlete field expected to boast an impressive line-up of Olympic heroes, World Champions and triathlon idols.
The 2-day triathlon event will also host a variety of races for amateur triathletes to compete in, including waves dedicated to athletes of determination. Participants can choose from the Super Sprint, Sprint, and Olympic race distances – either as an individual or as part of a relay team. The selection of race categories on offer means that the event is welcoming to athletes of all abilities – from first-timers looking for a new challenge, up to seasoned pros looking for a new personal best.
In line with government guidelines and to ensure the safety of all participants, the field will be limited and the event will host races for athletes aged 18 years and over only. The junior races are expected to return in 2022.
As Abu Dhabi looks forward to hosting the World Championship in 2022, the time is now to get involved in this wonderful sport. Whether you are a triathlon fan, an athlete, a volunteer or a technical official.
