About the Local Area
Challenge London is the world’s biggest city centre triathlon open to all abilities. Ride by Big Ben, the London Eye and Houses of Parliament en route. London as a destination needs no introduction with its wealth of historic sites, accommodation, culture and the arts. Docklands, where Challenge London is based, is a vibrant business and residential area, reclaimed and regenerated from the original London port of old. Docklands offers a mix of inner city living, shopping at The District Docklands, commerce, connection to nature, entertainment, dining, sporting and community events, arts and culture. It’s also very convenient to reach with both overland and Underground service and multiple bus routes.
About Challenge London
The middle distance race will feature a 1.9km swim, 80km bike (with plans to increase to 90km in 2024) 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, while the multi-lap run will take place within Docklands, perfect for spectator support.
