2017 Wuustwezel ETU Sprint Triathlon European Cup
Triathlon is a loved sport in Wuustwezel. Many people will offer a place to sleep to the athletes. We just set up the ‘Homestay’-project and there are many people interested.
As an athlete you can sign up to a Homestay-spot. Just fill in the form on our website: http://www.triathlonwuustwezel.be/en/homestays.aspx and we will match you with the right homestay! Or send us an e-mail with you personal and flight information and we complete it for you. PLease complete this before the 1st of August.
Most of the people don’t ask for a contribution, so you can save a lot of money. We bring you in contact with your homestay so that you can arrange the rest by yourself. Hope to see you soon!
If you don’t want a Homestay, you can rent a room in the Host Hotel (Van der Valk Dennenhof) or in following hotel: http://moerkantheide.wixsite.com/moerkantheide/english
