Following the successful elite 2013 ITU Duathlon World Championships, which took part as a part of the Cali World Games this month, the organizers of next year’s race would like to encourage duathletes around the world to save the dates of 31 May to 1-June 2014 for the 2014 Pontevedra ITU Duathlon World Championships.
No stranger to ITU racing, Pontevedra has previously hosted European Premium Triathlon Cups from 2008-2010. The northwestern Spanish city was also home to the European Triathlon Championships in 2011. Last year, in preparation for the World Championships, the city welcomed Spain’s Duathlon National Championships, which raced through the centre of the city.
In addition to hosting the elite races, the Under23, Junior, Paratriathlon and Age Group categories will also be determined on the same weekend next May/June. Host race hotels have now been secured and further details of these will be released shortly.
