London Triathlon

Competitors at last year's London Triathlon

This year's Virgin Active London Triathlon takes places over the weekend of the 27-28 July. Over 13,000 competitors will race in the three components of triathlon:

  • Swimming
  • Cycling
  • Running

There are a number of different triathlon events taking place over the weekend, all of different lengths and for a range of abilities. This year the events take place around the ExCeL Centre, London, where races will start and finish. There will also be a free EXPO at the finishing line of the triathlon races. The bike courses will benefit from road closures, which will allow competitors to race on traffic-free roads. 

This year's route is yet to be announced, but will be centred around the Royal Victoria Dock in London. A number of celebrities take part in the event each year and in previous years have included Jenson Button and Vernon Kay.


27-28 July - Check the London weather forecast before taking part in the London triathlon.

The weather will have a big impact on the times the athletes complete the events in. Wind will have a large impact on all the triathlon events, and the temperature will have an impact on the running and the cycling parts.
