USAT Announces 2010 National Championships


(0 votes)

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — USA Triathlon (USAT) has announced the dates and locations for its 2010 National Championships.

The 11 National Championship events will be held in eight states covering six of USAT's 10 regions, giving athletes the chance to compete against the best in the nation in each multisport discipline.

Five locations are serving as hosts for the first time, while the others have a long history of supporting USA Triathlon National Championship events.

One of the most significant changes to the 2010 event lineup is USAT's decision to make Sprint Nationals a USAT-owned event and to move the event to Tuscaloosa, Ala., alongside USA Triathlon's premier championships for age group and elite athletes.

"We are excited for all of our 2010 National Championship events," said Jeff Dyrek, USA Triathlon's director of national events. These events will provide a great championship atmosphere and allow athletes to test their multisport skills against the best athletes in the country. In 2009, USAT's National Championships set participation records and provided unbelievable race experiences."

USA Triathlon's National Championships provide the ultimate competition for amateur and professional multisport athletes in the United States. For amateurs, the events not only provide the right to be crowned a national champion, but also qualifying opportunities to compete with Team USA at International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championships. World championship teams are fielded for short course triathlon, sprint triathlon, long course triathlon, short course duathlon, long course duathlon, aquathlon, and winter triathlon.

Some national championship events require athletes to qualify. Check each event's web page for details on how to qualify.
