The gruelling three-course event will see athletes swim, bike and run their way from Roundhay Park to the city centre, with the finish taking place in front of the Civic Hall.

The top male and female elite triathletes will compete on Sunday (9 June), with Leeds’ own Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, and Jessica Learmonth among those taking part.

Amateur triathletes will also have a chance to tackle the course on Saturday (8 June), meaning a number of major roads across the city will be closed this weekend for the sporting event.

The road closures will cause disruption for commuters around Roundhay, Oakwood, Harehills, Moortown, Meanwood, Headingley, Burley and the city centre.
