If you're a seasoned athlete you can pit your skills against some of the best in the UK completing the course in championship time. The Virgin London Triathlon does have something for everybody, you can even share the burden with two friends just taking on one discipline each. Regardless of your ability level this is a really well organised event and lots of fun. In a rarity for a cycling event in London there will be full road closures on all routes, meaning you can focus on your time rather than the traffic.

Wishing the very best of luck to our fantastic team of  300 runners in the Brighton Half  Marathon this Sunday!

If you’re running for WaterAid on Sunday then don’t forget to look out for us along the route. We’ll have a cheer point at miles 1.5 and 6.5 and we’ll be manning the official water station near mile 10.

Please do encourage your friends and family to come and join us! We’d love for your friends and family to come along to our cheer point and to support you from there too, so do let them know where to find us.

We’d love for you to come along and say hello after the race as well at our post-race marquee in the charity area. 

To help support all our runners in the lead up to race day we’ve teamed up with the company Running with Us, to provide you with a training support package.

As a member of our team you’ll receive:

  • A bespoke training plan – suitable for your level of experience
  • Email helpline – ask the coach training, race, nutrition or injury questions
  • Twitter and Facebook ask the coach services and webinar sessions
  • An invite to our training evening

In addition to this, you will also receive ;

  • A personalised WaterAid running vest or technical t-shirt
  • A fundraising pack to help you meet your targets
  • Fundraising and event resources including balloons, collecting tins and banners
  • Regular newsletters and emails to keep you updated
  • The opportunity to wear our famous WaterAid tap or toilet costumes
  • Support and advice from a dedicated member of the WaterAid events team
Above all, we love hearing from you! If you have a question or just want to chat about your training, get in touch.
How to send sponsorship in 

If you've set up a fundraising webpage, the monies donated on-line should be transferred to WaterAid automatically. However, if you've raised money off-line, here is how to get it sent to us: 

It is more efficient and cost effective for us to process sponsorship in batches, which saves funds that can instead be used to help some of the world's poorest people gain access to safe water and sanitation. We therefore ask that you collect as much sponsorship as possible before sending it to:

The Events team
47- 49 Durham Street
London SE11 5JD

Please remember to include the following information when sending in your sponsorship:
  • Your name 
  • What the sponsorship is for  
  • Sponsor form with names/addresses of the sponsors and whether they would like to apply Gift Aid 
We strongly recommend that you send your sponsorship via recorded delivery so that you can track and hopefully retrieve your envelope if it goes missing. Sponsorship does go missing in the post from time to time, and it's hugely disappointing for both runners and the charity, so recorded delivery is always worth the extra effort.
