  • Take part in the London Triathlon for people
    battling a brain tumour

    London Triathlon LogoWetsuits, bikes, trainers...and oyster cards at the ready - the 2014 London Triathlon is officially open for entries!

    We aim to have the lowest entry fees and fundraising targets so this year it's easier than ever to swim, bike and run to support some of the 55,000+ people in the UK living with and beyond a brain tumour diagnosis.

    Taking place on the 2 - 3 August, the 2014 London Triathlon will welcome over 13,000 triathletes of all ages and abilities to swim, bike and run around the iconic route.

    With distances ranging from Super Sprint up to Olympic Plus, there really is something for individuals of all abilities. If you don’t fancy doing the whole thing, why not follow in the footsteps of Olympians Louis Smith, Jade Jones and Nicola Adams and take on one leg as part of the team relay with friends?

    No matter how you do it, completing the London Triathlon with team brainstrust will make a huge difference for brain tumour patients. We know.
