Over the course of this weekend, thousands of spectators from all around the world will visit the glorious Hyde Park to watch the fourth event in the 2014 ITU World Triathlon Series. Here’s a little taster of what you can expect…
On Saturday 31st May the world's best triathletes will go head to head in pursuit of vital World Championship points in a thrilling Sprint distance race. It's the ultimate battle of endurance and staying power and with a hugely competitive field both in the men’s and women’s races, aggressive racing is guaranteed.
