London Triathlon

Fancy becoming a triathlete this year? Swim, bike and run past London’s world-famous landmarks whilst raising money for Farm Africa.

Whether it is your 1st or 101st event, everyone is welcome. If you’re thinking of doing your first triathlon, you are not the only one! 1 in 3 London Triathletes were first timers in 2019; dip your toe in or grab your friends to form a Relay Team to join in the fun. If you’re experienced and want to push yourself why not take on the Olympic distance and have your own medal moment, guaranteed!


How long is the London Triathlon?

There are 4 distances to choose from: Super Sprint, Sprint, Olympic and Olympic Plus. Check out the table below for a breakdown of what these distances really mean.

You can enter as an individual or as part of a Team Relay in the Sprint or Olympic distance categories.


Count me in! How do I get a place?

There are two ways you can secure your place...


Farm Africa charity place - £105

We would love you to join #TeamFarmAfrica! Your fundraising will help African farmers grow more, sell more and sell for more - sustainably.

We ask you to pledge £200 as an individual triathlete or if you and two friends sign up as a Relay Team, we ask you to pledge £300 together, or £100 per person. We are full of fundraising ideas to help you beat these targets in the most fun way possible!

Sign up as an individual triathlete here!
