The Middle distance race features a 1.9km swim, 80km bike and finish with a half marathon on the same iconic course already enjoyed by thousands of triathletes over the years. The swim will take place in the sheltered Royal Victoria Dock while the three-lap bike will take athletes from Docklands to Westminster and back, taking in some of London’s most memorable sights along closed-roads, while the multi-lap run will take place within Docklands, perfect for spectator support.
