Last updated on July 2nd, 2019 at 09:42 am

The 2013 USA Triathlon Age Group Nationals is being held this weekend at the Milwaukee lakefront.

 
Visit Milwaukee estimates $2.3 million in local economic impact from the event, with 4,500 athletes participating in the events, and thousands of accompanying family members and spectators coming to the city.

The event is one of the largest triathlons in the country, and is expected to surpass last year’s event as the largest USA Triathlon-owned National Championship in the history of the organization. 

The country’s top amateur triathletes will compete in Olympic-Distance and Sprint National Championships. National titles and spots on Team USA for the 2014 ITU World Championships will be on the line in Milwaukee.

The event is being held Saturday, Aug. 10 (Olympic Distance) and on Sunday, Aug. 11 (Sprint Distance), both from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. 

Coverage of the event will be streamed live online this weekend for free at usatriathlon.org

There will be several road closures on the lakefront area this weekend for the event. More information on the road closures can be found at WISN.com. WISN-12 News is a media partner of Biztimes.
