World Triathlon comes to Leeds this weekend

The World Triathlon is being hosted in Leeds for the fifth time this weekend It is taking place over June 5 and June 6, and all of the races start and finish in Roundhay Park for the first time.

This means there will be a number of road closures and the details are on  Leeds City Council’s interactive map.  Information about changes to bus services is  here

Only a limited area, within the park, will remain open to the public – and Leeds City Council is encouraging people to choose one of Leeds’ other great parks instead,  pedestrian access will be available via the entrances at Park Lane, Mansion Lane and Wetherby Road.

Thousands of athletes are set to compete, from amateurs to elites, and for the first time elite paratriathletes will also be taking to the start line, as the event hosts the World Triathlon Para Series.

However, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the event space within Roundhay Park, is limited so if you wanted to go and watch you would need to book a ticket and there are only a few left
