2021 World Triathlon Championship Finals Edmonton
World Triathlon Series Edmonton, in partnership with World Triathlon and Triathlon Canada, regret to inform that the Age-Group Championship races will not be held this August 17-22 as part of the 2021 World Triathlon Championship Finals Edmonton. The unfortunate decision has been taken due to COVID-19 and the related international travel restrictions, that will make it impossible for most of the Age-Group athletes to travel to Canada this summer.
With the health and safety of our athletes and community as top priority, government officials and public health authorities are unable to grant travel exemptions to international age-group athletes, including vaccinated travellers at this time. And while we hoped the COVID-19 situation regarding international travel would have improved over the past few months, unfortunately this has not been the case.
We understand the hard-work and dedication it takes to qualify and prepare for the World Championships. The organising committee has been working tirelessly to make everything possible in order to welcome the 3,000+ international age-group athletes in Edmonton this summer in what was planned to a “Best Ever” Age-Group Championships.
While the World Triathlon Age-Group Championships will not take place in Edmonton, World Triathlon is working with different Organisers and National to try to find an alternate location for these races later in the year.
The Elite races and the U23 races of the 2021 World Triathlon Championship Finals Edmonton will take place as planned.
