Alternate 2021 and 2022 Duathlon World Championship Qualifying Options

USA Triathlon is offering three additional qualifying opportunities for the 2021 and 2022 Duathlon World Championships (Sprint and Standard-Distance). These qualifying opportunities are intended for athletes who were unable or chose not to travel to the 2021 Duathlon National Championships May 21-22 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, based on the state’s discriminatory anti-transgender legislation, a COVID-19 exposure, or other extenuating circumstances.

The 2021 Sprint and Standard Duathlon World Championships will take place Sept. 3-12 in Almere, the Netherlands, while the 2022 Sprint and Standard Duathlon Worlds are set for Aug. 18-28 in Townsville, Australia.

For the following races, the first-place athlete in each age group and gender (rolling down to fifth place after the age-up rule) will qualify for Team USA for both the Sprint and Standard-Distance World Championships in 2021 and 2022. Qualifying athletes may claim all four spots (Sprint 2021, Standard 2021, Sprint 2022, Standard 2022), or some combination thereof. Any unused spots will be offered to the next finisher, down to fifth place.

Athletes who qualify at each race will receive an email from USA Triathlon within 7 days of the race date and will be asked to claim their spot on Team USA within 24 hours of receiving the email. First-place finishers can expect an email by the Tuesday following race weekend, while any available roll-down spots will be communicated in the days following. A non-response within 24 hours will be considered as not interested. Please understand the timeline is so tight so that we can make roll-down spots available in a timely manner and confirm our World Championships roster as soon as possible — so be sure to check your email daily in the week following your race!
