This was the third time Tweedie had represented GB in the event and the second time he had been on the podium. He was also runner-up in 2016.

Paul Jephcott from PACTRAC was selected to represent GB in the Mid-Distance European Championships but was unable to run because of injury. He still travelled to the event though and put the vest on and completed the swim and bike.
