Triathlon will make its third successive Commonwealth Games appearance at Birmingham 2022. After debuting at Manchester 2002, it remained on the programme at Melbourne 2006, but did not make another appearance until Glasgow 2014. Para Triathlon made its Games debut at Gold Coast 2018.
Rules, format, venue
Incorporating three varied disciplines in one event makes it a very physically demanding sport. The race starts with a swim, moving on cycle and a lengthy run to end the proceedings.
The Triathlon and Para Triathlon (for athletes with a visual impairment – PTVI) events will take place within Sutton Park and on the local roads to the south of the park, in and around Boldmere High Street, Sutton on July 29, 31.
There are five medal events; Individual Women, Individual Men, Para Individual Women, Para Individual Men and a ‘Mixed Team Relay’ event, which comprises teams of two men and two women.
