Voice of America Park in West Chester will host the USA Triathlon Youth & Junior National Championships through 2015, the Butler County Visitor’s Bureau announced this week. VOA Park hosted the event for the first time in 2012 and will host this year’s event Aug. 3-4.
“We are thrilled that USA Triathlon has chosen to extend its relationship with the BCVB and return to Butler County for an additional two years,” said Mark Hecquet, executive director of the BCVB. “USAT’s commitment to the BCVB and Butler County further emphasizes Butler County’s prominence as an premier destination to host major sporting events.”
The USA Youth and Junior National Championships will feature more than 700 triathletes ages 7 to 19 from across the country, who will compete in youth, youth elite and junior elite categories.
The triathlon is expected to draw more than 1,700 visitors and have an annual estimated economic impact of $500,000.
