The 2012 Games saw the sport of Triathlon change forever and in 2013 it will return to London for 5 days of international competition.






Only one year after the Olympic Games, London will host the Final of the ITU World Triathlon Series. In September the British capital will welcome over 5,000 athletes from around the world competing for Elite, U23, Junior, Paratriathlon and Age Group World Championship titles in the Olympic triathlon venue at Hyde Park.


“It will be so special coming back to London only a year after the Olympics,” says Jonathan Brownlee, reigning ITU World Champion. “Hosting the Grand Final is such a great legacy of the Games, and of course I hope to be in a position to defend my World Champion title on home soil.”





“The crowds were just amazing in Hyde Park for the triathlon,” adds older brother and Olympic Gold Medal Winner Alistair Brownlee, “it was an amazing event and I’m looking forward to racing there again in September.”


In addition to the World Championship races, there will be an Open Age Group race on Saturday, 14 September 2013, enabling up to 2,500 participants of all abilities to experience triathlon in Hyde Park on much of the same course as the Elite. The Open Age Group race that requires no prequalification will be staged over Sprint (750m Swim, 20km Bike, 5km Run) and Olympic (1500m Swim, 40km Bike, 10km Run) Distance. Age Group athletes will finish on the same finish chute as the Gold Medal Winners of 2012 did. 





Demand for entries into these races that require no prequalification is expected to be extremely high. To register your interest for this mass participation race please visit
