If you like to mix it up, then a triathlon is the event for you! Put yourself to the test and swim, cycle and run in this action-packed race around the capital.
With a variety of distances to choose from, you don't have to be a top athlete to take part. All competitors will swim in the Royal Victoria Dock and run around the London Docklands, cheered on by a 30,000 strong crowd.
I'll never forget riding on closed roads at 41km per hour, with the sun coming up

How your sponsorship money helps
Birke is 20 years old and has a one year old daughter. She lives in Ethiopia, where she is a member of the local ActionAid bee-keeping cooperative.
She says, “I am respected by the men in the cooperative as they elected me to the controlling committee. My vision is to have my own bee project to hand over to the next generation.”
In 2013 the group harvested their first honey, producing 46kg, and a year later in 2014 they harvested 240kg. The cooperative are confident that their harvests and their income will increase each year.
