  • Take part in the London Triathlon for people
    battling a brain tumour – 2nd August

    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.

  • Ride 24 - London to Paris by bike, in 24 hours for people affected by a brain tumour. – 6th September

    The originial 24 hour classic. London's Blackheath - 350 excited riders line up on the start line. We head out into the Kent countryside towards our first rest stop, then onwards to Dover, a second stop, before an evening ferry to Calais. Night riding now once in France, rest stops and food as we pass through the major cathedral cities of Amiens and Beauvais, and smaller towns steeped in history. If we're lucky, locals will be out in force to cheer us Tour de France style as we speed though.

    We head into Paris though the quieter Sunday morning traffic on to the glorious finale around the Arc de Triumphe, down the Champs Elysee before the finish near the Eiffel Tower. Voila - the classic Ride 24 and a great place to celebrate.
