Hawley Set to Compete in World Triathlon Cup Opener

A new World Triathlon Cup season begins with the 2024 World Triathlon Cup Napier, a coastal city of New Zealand’s North Island. While New Zealand is well known for staging Triathlon races, this will be the inaugural World Triathlon Cup for Napier.

The race schedule is stacked across Saturday February 24th and Sunday February 25th.

Saturday will host the 2024 Oceania Triathlon Junior Championships Napier and the 2024 World Triathlon Cup Napier with the world’s best athletes racing in an all-important Olympic Qualification window for Paris 2024. Sunday will stage the Age-Group races, Oceania Junior Mixed Relay and the 2024 World Triathlon Mixed Relay.

The 2024 World Triathlon Cup is a sprint-distance triathlon (750m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run) and will start along the iconic stretch of the waterfront in Napier called Perfume Point.

The Elite Women will race on Saturday from 4pm local time and the Men will line-up from 6pm, all watchable on the platform TriathlonLive.tv (live and on-demand).

Bermuda’s Erica Hawley is a member of Team World Triathlon and continues to show progress each season. Hawley had a standout 2023 season, securing her first World Triathlon Cup Medal in Yeongdo, South Korea, among other top 10 finishes. If the talented young star from Bermuda can maintain a strong position up front, she could have a real chance at running her way to a medal finish or her first World Cup victory.

Team World Triathlon members Maria Carolina Velasquez (COL) and Zuzana Michalivkova (CZE) will join Hawley on the start line in Napier, eager to produce dominant performances in a crucial Olympic year. Velasquez Soto earned Silver in the 2023 Santiago Pan America Games Women’s race and Michalickova came 4th in last weekend’s 2024 Oceania Triathlon Cup Wanaka.
