2021 ITU WORLD TRIATHLON SERIES YOKOHAMA
AGE GROUP REGISTRATION

Many sporting events, including the WTS Yokohama, were cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic. However, we still believe it is our mission, as the LOC of the 2021 event, to continue our tradition of providing “dreams” and “hopes” to all of you.

Our priority entry policy has received many supportive messages and a lot of positive feedback. Although the entry process for Age Groupers started under the State of Emergency, we continue preparation to organize the 2021 event, but in a new mode by operating in “Yokohama style” that we established, in response to your supportive thoughts.

We look forward to meeting you in May in an easy state of circumstances after overcoming obstacles.
