- Europe Triathlon Cup and Europe Triathlon Junior Cup Tiszaújváros (Hungary) on 16 and 17 July 2022. Tiszaújváros is an industrial town in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, Northern Hungary, 35 km south-east of Miskolc, near the river Tisza.Like in 2021 Tiszaujvaros will organize an elite and junior European Cup. The format will be the same as well with a semi-final and final on a sprint distance for the elite and a semi-final and final on a super-sprint distance for the Junior athletes. Tiszaujvaros has a long tradition as a World Cup since the 90s and a European Junior Cup since 2008. Only in 2020 the event took not place because of covid, meaning that this is the 14th edition of the Junior Cup in 2022 in Tiszaujvaros. In 2021 151 junior and 147 elite athletes participated. As a bonus the race will be a premium European Cup, meaning double the points and double the prize money. Lost in the Hungarian countryside, the Tszaújváros ETU cup is a favourite on the calendar as it offers a unique race format with Semi finals on the Saturday and Finals on the Sunday. The host town also loves receiving the ahletes and are known to put on a great show, after all they have been doing it since 1997! We are eager for some great racing once more in Tizzy!
