The Dambuster Triathlon, one of seven events that make up the 2013 Triathlon England – National Championships, sold out the 1,000 places in just under a week. The event, taking place on 22 June, has always been popular, but the nation certainly appears to have been inspired to secure their place at the race.
Jem Lawson, Chair of Triathlon England, said: “;It ’s great news to see how interest in the sport has grown and we are excited to say that our 2013 Triathlon England – National Triathlon Championships is the best yet. The event sell-out shows these events are growing, and we hope this New Year will encourage many more to get involved. ”;
Mark Shaw from Pace Setter Events, said: “The event sold out in record time this year, the fastest ever! The combination of the race this year being the Triathlon England – National Triathlon Championships for the first time, alongside a qualifier for the World Championships in London, has increased the profile and led to more excitement ahead of the race. ”;
