The London Triathlon is a great day out for both athletes & spectators! We always encourage friends and family to come down, cheer on the triathletes & help create the incredible atmosphere London is famous for. Inside the ExCeL, you’ll find a great selection of food & drink, a bar, exclusive deals from our sponsors, and a new Kids Zone to keep the little ones entertained. It’s completely free for all spectators to enter the ExCeL on the day.
Spectators can view the whole of the swim course from the dock edge, next to the start pontoon. You can access the dock edge, via the stairs or lift located on the South side of the main hall (this will be directly in front of you as you enter via Race Pack Pick Up). Look out for the ‘Spectator Viewing’ hanging banner against the back wall.
Either head towards the Aloft Hotel on the East side of the ExCeL, or behind the Fox Pub underneath the walkway to Custom House on the West side of ExCeL, for the best view of the bike course around the building.
The East Car Park is the best place to grab a spot and watch the run from. With the charity cheer marquees, loud music and plenty going on, this area has an all-day party atmosphere. Triathletes need to complete laps of the run course, so this is a great spot to high-5 your loved ones a few times.
THE FINISH LINE
As your athlete starts their final lap, we suggest you make your way to the finish line and grab a seat in one of the finish line grandstands – it’s an electrifying atmosphere! Make sure you cheer as loud as you can as your athletes cross that all-important finish line.
