I definitely enjoyed last year’s London Triathlon down in sunny docklands. The only regret was probably doing the shorter distance and not getting in the more iconic views around the Houses of Parliament that you get with the Oly’s bike leg. (Course subject to confirmation, 2014 shown below)
The Dodgy legs of 2015 meant the Sprint was the one for me but this year is looking good so far (good=slow but moving). So maybe an unaccustomed move up to the Oly? We’ll see.
Either way you always get to enjoy the annual ‘Race The Red Pig Event’. The pig usually loses.
But seriously the views are pretty good and the race organisation is fantastic. For Londoners/South Easterners you also save money by not having to drive somewhere and stay in a hotel which reduces the effective cost.
