Elite and amateur athletes from around the world will converge on the island as the WTS alongside the Bermuda Tourism Authority [BTA] hosts more heart-pumping action as part of the circuit’s global series.

“Known for its picturesque surroundings, the beauty of the island boasts some of the most challenging terrain, making the race courses for this event one of the most grueling in the sport. Triathletes ranging from novice to advanced who are hungry for a post-pandemic challenge are invited to join! Individual swimmers, cyclists, and runners interested in competing as a relay team are also encouraged to enter.”

WTSBDA chairwoman, Hazel Clark said, “The long awaited return of the World Triathlon Series to Bermuda’s shores is finally over. With all the excitement around Bermuda’s triathletes on the world stage representing best-in-class performances, we couldn’t be happier than to keep the momentum going right here at home.

“We anticipate the streets in the City of Hamilton to be lined with supporters, and are thrilled to be able to provide that option once again.”

The spokesperson said, “With Dame Flora Duffy – Bermuda’s gold medal Olympic triathlete in Tokyo, XXI and XXII Commonwealth Games gold medalist – leading the charge for Bermuda’s triathletes on the international stage, the development of future homegrown champions has exploded in both popularity and importance.

“Therefore, the WTS Bermuda would not be complete without the Island’s youth competing in a kids duathlon, whereby up-and coming athletes will run-bike-run their way down the famed blue carpet.”

Minister of Youth, Culture, and Sport Dr. Ernest Peets said, “Bermuda is pleased to host the 2022 World Triathlon Series. Hosting this event is of significant importance for the residents of Bermuda. Dame Flora Duffy’s accomplishments have truly illuminated the sport for our aspiring young athletes.

“Watching Dame Flora on our local roads competing against international athletes, dominating the event in 2018 has magnified the immense support of Bermuda fans.

“I urge everyone to set aside time on November 5th and 6th to cheer on both local and international athletes as they compete on the roads and in the water. And now that registration is open, we hope that a significant number of young Bermudians will also sign up to participate by running and biking in the kids duathlon.”

The spokesperson said, “Registration categories include:

  • Standard Distance Age Categories ranging from ages 18 to 70+
  • Sprint Distance Age Categories ranging from ages 16 to 70+
  • Kids Duathlon Categories ranging from ages 7-15

“Early bird registrants for the WTS Bermuda can enjoy discounted fees for a limited time until August 30, regular rates will be in effect as of August 31. For youth entering the kids duathlon category, registration is free. To sign up, visit bermuda.triathlon.org.

“For athletes who registered in 2021, the WTS Bermuda organising committee advises that correspondence will be shared directly to each registrant based on contact information submitted last year. Instructions as to how to proceed with joining this year’s event will be included.”
