If you are looking to take part in 2009's most exciting and unique London based Triathlon, then look no further than the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship, taking place in London's Hyde Park on 16th August.

Helen Jenkins, the reigning world champion from Britain, will be amongst a starting line-up of the world's top Triathletes at the Elite race on Saturday 15th August and Alistair Brownlee, winner of stage two of the series in Madrid, has also indicated he will be racing in Hyde Park

Entries are limited to just 2,100 participants and there has already been huge interest in the event. To register for the Age Group race visit http://www.triathlon-wcs-london.org/index.php/en/mass-par/registration-age-group
Each event features an elite men's and women's race but also an Age Group mass participation race. The event in London also hosts youth, junior and paratriathlon races, an expo and an international trade fair.

Event organisers and owners Upsolut Sports and the ITU collaborated to create this new series and are working with the BTF on the London leg. In London the Age Group race participants will also be encouraged to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care, the Official Charity Partner.

Dan Ritterband, Director of Marketing, Office of the Mayor of London, said: " It is fantastic that London will be hosting another world class sporting event at one of its iconic landmarks this summer. Londoners and visitors will get a chance, to not only see the world's best Triathletes in action, but to compete themselves at the venue for the 2012 Games. Whether competing or spectating, this event will be fantastic for everyone."

World champion Helen Jenkins said: " I'm very excited about the prospect of racing in London. It will be good to have a home crowd to support us and we will get an early look at Hyde Park which will host the Olympic Triathlon in 2012" .
