london Triathlon and British 10k on same day

I've only just realised that the London triathlon and the British 10k are on the same day - aug 1st

dont you think this is a slight logistal oversight by the GLA?


  • Oh noooo ! And I was soooo gonna enter the 10k ! ;-)

    There isn't any overlap course-wise is there ? Because that could be lotsa fun !
  • Couldn't you just do the 10k as a warm-up?
  • no overlap on course but the old st johns ambulance are going to have there work cut out.

    that 10k (I did the first and never again) has a large turn out.

    part of the bike course may go near the 10k course- maybe they want to double up on marshalls!

    Just make sure you get the right t- shirt and medal when you cross the finishing line.
    Your mates wont be impressed with a sub 2 1/2 hours for a 10k run!
  • I would.

  • daz - I am thinking of marshalling again on the Sunday so I can knock ya off the bike!!

    can't though as petal has decided to go for the female Olympic distance and I might (just might) have a crack at the sprint if I can be arsed.
  • The bike course into London is all over by about 8.30, so there won't be any clash. The rest of the entrants just cycle round Excel.
