The International Triathlon Union (ITU) has opened bidding for the 2017 ITU World Para Triathlon Events (WPE) and ITU World Para Triathlon World Cup (WPWC) to all National Federations and cities interested in hosting the premier races.
Following the successful debut of the sport at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, the ITU offers elite competition for Para triathletes of all sport classes at World Para Triathlon Events and World Para Triathlon World Cups around the world. Para triathletes gain points at each race to qualify for berths to the World Championships, which in 2017 will be held in conjunction with the ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Both the WPE and WPWC will be held on every continent, at least one race each, and can be combined with a World Triathlon Series or World Cup event or ran independently.
Cities interested in hosting a World Para Triathlon Event or a World Para Triathlon World Cup must submit bid documents in conjunction with their respective National Federations before 21 October.
Event bid conditions can be found on the ITU’s website
