SAUNDERS 1865 TEAM RECOMMENDATION: The Pruhealth World Triathlon Grand Final brings the Olympic spirit back to London
Last year, the world watched breathlessly as the 2012 London Olympics unfolded, cheering on their home countries and favourite athletes as they competed for Olympic glory. Fast-forward to September 2013 and you have a continuation of this epic event, The Pruhealth World Triathlon Grand Final, which will be held in London from the 11-15 September.
The Triathlon will be hosted at Hyde Park and participants will be using the same courses as last year’s Olympians with slight modifications. It is expected that over 5,000 athletes will be converging upon London for the competition to compete for championship titles.
The event is free and open to the public throughout the duration of the triathlon. While grandstand seats for the Elite Men and Elite Women’s races have sold out, you can still show up and watch the races this weekend from various sites around the park at the sides of the course.
On Saturday, the Elite Women’s race will be held as well as two Open Races for non-qualifying members of the public looking to test their mettle in a triathlon; that afternoon, there will be a medal ceremony for the Paratriathlon participants. Sunday, the final day of the race, the morning will consist of the Standard Distance Age-Group World Championship while the Elite Men will have their race in the afternoon.
If you were unfortunate enough to miss the glory of London 2012 in person, this is your chance to have a taste of its lasting legacy and share in the eternal spirit of the Olympics!
