Could Bermuda Host Another Triathlon Event
World Triathlon is welcoming bids for the World Triathlon Championship Series, World Triathlon Cups and World Triathlon Para triathlon events in 2025. Bid applications are also open for cities to host the Winter Triathlon World Championships and Winter Cups and World Triathlon Development Regional Cups next year.

World Triathlon’s top-tier events are broadcast in 22 countries (or larger regions) including the biggest global markets, as well as reaching out to more than 360,000 viewers per year on the OTT platform TriathlonLIVE. Hosting these events therefore offers a perfect opportunity for bidding cities to enjoy socio-economic benefits for tourism, business, and sports development, and to ensure a sustainable sporting spectacle for the city and local organizing committee.

“We are fully committed to finding the best host cities for our sport, and engaging earlier with our host venues to collaborate on creating a sustainable, long-term strategy that keeps major events on track with modern priorities. The legacy piece is important, and using the Olympic and Paralympic movements to align our major events strategy with our members is vital as we move past Paris and into the following Major Games cycles”, said Marisol Casado, World Triathlon President and IOC member.

The World Triathlon Championship Series (WTCS) is the world’s most prestigious triathlon series, featuring the best triathletes on the planet competing head-to-head around the globe and culminating with the flagship Championship Finals, where the year’s World Champions are crowned.

The Series encompasses races over the Olympic Distance (1.5km swim, 40km bike, and 10km run), Sprint Distance (750m swim, 20km bike, and 5km run), and the Eliminator format (two-day Semi-Final/Final super-sprints), as well as the Mixed Relay Series events.

Over the 15 years since its inception in 2009, the World Triathlon Championship Series has established itself as the pinnacle of Olympic and Sprint distance triathlon racing.

Hosting Championship Series events provides cities with opportunities to showcase themselves to millions via live international television broadcasts and TriathlonLIVE.tv, as the Series events regularly draw annual on-site spectators upwards of 1 million
