Will Edmonton now host in 2021 and Bermuda in 2022?
We are working with World Triathlon (ITU) on possible scenarios to allow Edmonton to host the world in the future.  A straight postponement requires the cooperation and engagement of many ITU contracted stakeholders and those discussions are underway.  Please rest assured that all parties are working diligently on a solution that works for ITU, future host cities, athletes and communities..  This takes time and hopefully we can provide an update soon.

With the triathlon season cancelled in 2020 (at least in Canada, but likely other countries as well), how do I qualify to compete in 2021?
