With the race concentrated around the iconic ExCeL Centre, the AJ Bell London Triathlon is a hugely spectator friendly event. The transition area and finish line are actually inside the ExCeL Centre and are both fantastic areas to catch a glimpse of those you are cheering on!

When spectating, please consider the safety of the competing athletes and be aware of the race that is going on around you.


We suggest spectators view the bike section from the west entrance of ExCeL (before the multi storey car park). Both the walkways from the DLR at Custom House Station and Prince Regent Station to ExCeL or from under the Fox pub at ground level are also great viewing points.

Spectators can line the South Colannade in the heart of Canary Wharf, where there are plenty of shops and eateries to keep you entertained whilst you wait.


The run course can be viewed anywhere outside the east of ExCeL as the route stretches along the north edge of the dock. The run route also loops through the Expo so you can also see the runners from inside the ExCeL Centre.


The swim area can be viewed from the Dockside which can be accessed from either side of ExCeL. We will build a pedestrian bridge on the east side of ExCeL so friends and family can watch you from almost anywhere on the dock front.


We couldn’t do our events without our incredible volunteers. Working at the world’s largest triathlon is an incredible opportunity as you get to be part of an iconic sporting event in the capital city.
