With 13,000 participants descending on the capital city, the London Triathlon has fast established itself as the UK’s biggest triathlon and next year celebrates its 20th anniversary.
The 2016 dates have been confirmed as 6-7th August and taking place during the Rio Olympic Games, organisers hope the event will help to celebrate the sport of triathlon and cater for participants of all ages and abilities.
Andy Knee, MD of IMG Mass Participation Sports said: “Triathlon is an iconic event in the city’s sporting calendar, with participants swimming the Royal Victoria Docks and cycling and running the surrounding area every year. We’re looking forward to welcoming returning triathletes and our thousands of first-timers to celebrate the event’s 20th anniversary in 2016.”
Four distances are available: Super-Sprint, Sprint, Olympic and Olympic Plus, as well as a variety of wave types including relay, age-group, youth, mixes and male and female-only.
