The 2021 London Triathlon will take place on Saturday 7 & Sunday 8 August and we’re very excited for what promises to be an AMAZING weekend.

Every year, thousands of people come to our iconic capital city to join our community of incredible triathletes taking on the challenge of the #LondonTri.

Combine with a well-planned trip to the capitol. Having been my home for 15 years I recently moved out of London so I decided to make it my first Tri and it was a fantastic experienced, very well organised, structured, and planned from the minute you sign up to when you exit the parking lot at the end! The one thing I would say is to avoid the putting the postcode into your sat nav for the West entrance to EXCEL on Sunday (for the Westminster bike route) as they block off the roads and its inaccessible!!! So make sure you know how to access from the EAST entrance instead otherwise you'll find yourself driving round and around with every other poor sod desperately trying to work out a way to get to the East entrance (you have to drive back down the A13 for about 6 miles - ignore this warning at your peril!) getting stressed about being late - which is the last thing you need on race day. A few Royal Marine friends of mine came down from up north to do it and stayed at my place a few years ago, afterwards I took them to a few choice beer gardens around South London, nothing fancy, that's all you need after a Tri - you still get the London vibe, no need to large it in Central etc.

Well organised but not the most enjoyable ride or run. The event is well organised and enjoyed the single lap swim. The 4 lap ride and run were a bit repetitive and road surface pretty uneven. If you think the London triathlon will be against an iconic backdrop the best you can hope for is a glimpse of the O2 otherwise it’s really very non-descript scenery!

Must do. Really great event I would 100% recommended you do it. Bike route to Westminster is also really fun and fast. Swim is nice too. Overall very well organised it didn't feel as big as it was which was nice.
