London Sprint Triathlon 2017
Who we ran with?
Hope and Glory
Where’d we go?
One swimming lap of the Royal Victoria docks in front of the ExCel centre.
Two cycling laps of the road from Leamouth to Beckton Park.
Finally, two running laps from the ExCel out along side of the docks.
How far did we go?
750m Swim, 20k Bike, 5km Run
Plodded (peddled and splashed) upon…
We splashed about in Thames water (not as bad as you would think)
We peddled on asphalt roads, and a few rumble strips.
We ran on asphalt roads with the few sections of plastic slabs to cover up some steps. Which H came to realise are VERY slippery when wet!
Meeting two lovely ladies before the swim who helped chat away our pre race nerves!
To get out of our wetsuits!
To run in heavy shoes. The torrential down pour during the cycle had left our snazzy kicks saturated.
Why This Race…
Apparently, it is now the biggest triathlon in the world! The atmosphere is amazing and the tri community is oh so welcoming.
