The World Triathlon Championship Abu Dhabi 2021 has been moved to a new date, November 5th – 6th for the first time in five years, the local organizers announced.
This event will take place two weeks after Bermuda host the Sprint and Relay Championships.
The decision, backed unanimously by the World Triathlon Executive Board, will not only allow more time for the current worldwide travel restrictions to ease but will be able to serve as a test event for the 2022 Abu Dhabi World Triathlon Championship Finals, also taking place at the end of the season.
The organizers of the 2021 World Triathlon Championship Series Abu Dhabi have planned for a Mixed Relay event to take place the same weekend.
The Inaugural World Triathlon Sprint and Relay Championships will take place in Bermuda October 15th – 17th before the rearranged World Triathlon Championship Series Abu Dhabi wraps up 2021.
The first look at the full 2021 World Triathlon calendar approved by the Executive Board reveals plenty of elite racing ahead in the coming months, so get your calendars ready and save the dates! The World Triathlon Championship Series and the World Triathlon World Cups are due to restart after May 1st.
