YOUTH SPORT TRUST
We are a national children's charity passionate about creating a future where every child enjoys the life-changing benefits that come from play and sport. We are on a mission to pioneer new ways of using sport to improve children’s wellbeing and give them a brighter future.
With 21 years of experience behind us, there is a reason we are the largest triathlon in the world.
Attracting over 11,000 participants and 30,000 spectators each year, this iconic triathlon has become a must-do event in the sporting calendar. With a variety of distances, routes and wave categories to choose from, our event caters for athletes of all levels; from first time triathletes to Olympic champions, everyone is welcome at the London Triathlon.
The London Triathlon takes place at the ExCel Centre, Royal Victoria Dock, and has a unique urban route that allows participants to swim, bike & run past the iconic landmarks of our capital. The 2019 London Triathlon will take place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th July.
HOCKEY FOR HEROES
Using Hockey as our sport to help, the Hockey for Heroes men and ladies teams work to raise funds for Help for Heroes, with their effort dating back to 2012 and encompassing a mixture of exceptional physical exertion, family fun events all combined with playing hockey.
