AJ Bell London Triathlon warm up

Posted by TriProject on February 11, 2016

The AJ Bell London Triathlon has become the worlds largest triathlon as it heads into it’s 20th event this summer. The Excel venue in the London Docklands is the home to this triathlon event which will see over 13,000 triathletes taking part across all ages and abilities.

This summers event takes places across the weekend of the 6th and 7th August across 4 distances, Super-Sprint, Sprint, Olympic and Olympic Plus. The popularity of the event is largely down to the set-up, with a variety of waves, team relays, age group splits, youth, mixed, male and female only waves.

The event also gives competitors and spectators the unique spectacle of watching the professional athletes tackle the same course. The 2015 event was won by Australian champion Peter Kerr in one hour and 48 minutes.

Whether you are a seasoned triathlete or testing the sport out for the first time you’ll need to have trained well. Here at the Tri Project we have a number of warm up events ideally timed for the London Triathlon.

We offer two event distances the Sprint and Standard which allows you to practice for your chosen event in August or choose a shorter event as part of your training.


Spint Distance: 750 metre swim | 21km bike ride | 5km run

Standard also Olympic Distance: 1500 metre swim | 38km bike ride | 10km run


Matt Chapman, Race director has this to say “Thorpe Park has proved to be a fantastic triathlon venue and fast becoming a must do race for both newcomers and experienced triathletes.  As the course takes competitors through the centre of the Nation’s Thrill Capital it certainly makes for a unique triathlon.  So make sure that you grab a place and take the opportunity to test out your fitness and practice those triathlon skills ahead of the AJ Bell London Triathlon”
