COUNCILLOR INQUIRIES

3.1

International Triathlon Union Event Opportunity (J. Batty)

 

 

 

As Edmonton has an excellent reputation for hosting international events and is highly regarded by the International Triathlon Union (ITU), Edmonton has been invited to consider hosting the 2014 ITU Grand Final. 

 

I would like Administration to provide the following information regarding international triathlon events in Edmonton:

 

1.    What is the ITU Grand Final and what is the current level of interest to bid for this in 2014?  Additionally, are there other ITU events that Edmonton could consider and in what years?  

2.    Does Wm. Hawrelak Park lake and the current race course meet international standards, and if not, what are the facility, site or route improvements necessary to bring a Grand Final to Edmonton and the anticipated costs to bring the facility up to standard?

3.    What are the necessary steps to submit a bid to host the World Championships?  Please provide details regarding the Capital and Operating budgets for such an event and the funding commitments expected of the City of Edmonton and other levels of government.

4.    What is the status of previously awarded international triathlon events in Edmonton and the existing funding commitments from the City of Edmonton for these events?

5.    What benefits can be seen from hosting an ITU Grand Final and how do these events contribute to Edmonton concurrent initiatives such as the proposed Velodrome development, the proposed expansion of the Edmonton Triathlon Academy and the Regional Training Centre, and the expansion of community based cycling opportunities such as trail development, new bike lanes and shifting the transportation modes.

6.    Please provide any additional information that may be relevant to this discussion. 

Please return this information to Community Services Committee as soon as possible.
