Triathlon at the Olympics BT London Live Hyde Park Sunday July 29th - Join the Windmilers

We’re very excited to announce an opportunity for some of you to get involved with the Olympics. The BTF/Triathlon England are working with partnership with the ITU and will be hosting a triathlon try-out zone in the BT London Live site at Hyde Park.

Triathlon is the only sport which will be on site for the whole of the Olympic period. The Windmilers have been selected as one of a small number of clubs to have use of the facility for a 2 hour slot. This will take place on Sunday July 29th at 11am – 1pm.

The site will have an Endless Pool, 2 x treadmills and 2 x watt bikes (as well as changing tents, wetsuits, and a lounge area etc.). The exact format is still being determines (there may be some competitive element involved but that has yet to be finalised).

Unfortunately we are limited in the number of participants we can bring, a maximum of 10 athletes and 2 coaches. Given this, we are likely to be oversubscribed as a club, so it may be that not everyone gets a chance to join in with the event itself. However we are keen to make this a big day out for the club and we’re hoping that many of you will make it up to Hyde Park that day for a picnic, and to watch the conclusion of the women’s cycle road race, amongst other events.

If you would like to be considered for one of the places on the event itself, please email tri@windmilers.org.uk by next Friday July 13th. Note that places will only be available to current Windmiler members. Please only reply if you are fairly certain you will be able to make it if selected. We will of course be sending more details as we receive them ourselves.
