Wetsuit
The triathlon-specific wetsuits will not only keep you warm but will also help you swim faster as it provides you with extra buoyancy
Surf and shortie wetsuits are allowed, but these are totally different to a triathlon specific wetsuit, which is designed for open water swimming and fits like a second skin. You can hire or purchase a wetsuit for the event via the HUUB website (https://huubdesign.com/ExternalLink)
*You will be given a swim cap at Swim Assembly so no need to bring your own but googles are compulsory and aren’t provided.
Bike
Fixed wheel bikes (bikes that use the pedals as a brake) are not permitted in the race. Your handlebars must not have bare open metal ends. Please obtain stoppers to plug them before coming to the race.
BTF referee bike checks can potentially stop you competing.
Bike Helmet
A bike helmet is compulsory.
Approved cycling safety helmets of ANSI Z90.4, SNELL B90, EN 1078 or an equivalent national standard must be worn by competitors. (NOTE: a CE mark is NOT an approval mark).
*Any helmet bought in recent years will comply but check for damage which would stop it protecting you properly.
Removal of Equipment
You will be able to remove your bike from Transition immediately after racing and you must remove your bike and equipment from Transition within 1.5 hours of finishing and prior to the venue closing times.
The organisers reserve the right to remove any equipment left in transition beyond the above times. The Support Team will check the bike number against the wristband number before it is released.
*One of the biggest issues post-event is caused by people taking the wrong wetsuit from Transition, please take a few seconds to check that you have your own wetsuit, most are black and look very similar.*
Drafting
Drafting is not allowed at the triathlon – anyone caught drafting outside of the Elite field will be disqualified from the event.

Did the race in 2019
This was quite different from all the countryside triathlons, but in a good way! Easy to park really close to the event, and the use of nice toilets for changing instead of a portable loo! I loved the music and vibe on the run too, when you needed that extra boost, and the crowd cheering you in!

Did the Super Sprint - Saturday in 2019
It was my fourth super sprint race. amazing vibes and really well organised. Even swimming on the dock didn't feel that bad because of the great atmosphere. feedback to the organisers: please consider putting back the little carper in the transition area. It was really tough running with the cleats on, on the cement floor, during transitions.

Did the Olympic Relay - Saturday in 2019
All very good from a competitors point of view. The only gripe was from my supporters who said it was not easy to find their way outside to see the bike and run (swim was easy)

Did the Olympic Relay - Saturday in 2019
It was definitely down from previous years, less stalls and things to do, for athletes the domes that were at the finish the last 2 years were missed this year, nowhere for me to check my time as I finished!

Great tri but needed more to fill the hall. The tent at the beginning was like a green house in the heat. It was the first year you did this, I'd rather just have a small pen area. Bike ride is good but the run atmosphere is better.

Did the Olympic - Sunday in 2019
I've just done my 14th London Triathlon in a row and have already registered an interest for next year's event... it's become the point of reference for my fitness and thanks to the excellent course and organisation my 'must do' event each year.

Did the Sprint - Saturday in 2019
Three years ago following an ankle operation I was told I would never run again! When a friend suggested I could take part in the London sprint Triathlon I couldn’t resist it. It was the perfect race for a comeback with people on the course throughout the day I never felt I was left behind, the organisation and volunteers were absolutely outstanding, I would love to return to London next year! Best race I’ve ever done !

I thought the organisation was incredible, this was my first triathlon so having it made really clear to me what I needed to was extremely helpful! I also found all the staff really helpful and welcoming which calmed my nerves. I will certainly be back next year to beat my time!
