London Fields Aquathlon
The London Fields Aquathlon sees competitors swim in East London’s only 50m outdoor heated pool before running around the picturesque park that is London Fields!
Check back soon. We are likely to schedule a season opener event (adults) in March, a junior event in June and senior event in September again in 2020. Thank you all who raced with us in 2019.
The senior events consist of a 400m swim in the lido followed by a 5km run around London Fields common.
At the point of entry you will be required to enter a predicted swim time which be used to dictate the start lists. Please be as accurate as possible when entering your swim time and consider doing your own timed swim if you are unsure of your swim time.

- TriStars Start (8 years old) — 50m swim, 500m run
- TriStars 1 (9–10 years) — 150m swim, 1.5km run

You will be required to enter a predicted swim time for the participant when entering the race which be used to dictate the start lists. Please be as accurate as possible when entering your swim time and consider doing your own timed swim if you are unsure of your swim time.
If you have any questions, including about support for racers with disabilities please get in touch via email@example.com.
Our races are entirely organised and marshalled by volunteers from our club. As much as we love our athletes training and racing together, supporting the club is equally important. We do ask all LFTC members to volunteer at our own club organised races throughout the year to make them a success. If you would like to help at any of the races, please email and let us know to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Via Entry Central we receive certain information about the participant and the person entering the participant, all of which is required for us to organise and run the event including residential address, email address, telephone number, emergency contact details, date of birth, gender, club, Triathlon England membership number and predicted swim time. Entry Central does not share your payment details with us, only the fact that you have paid the entry fee.
To organise our event the race organising committee will have access to all information and will share certain information with other parties including our club volunteers, timing chip provider and Triathlon England.
Due to the lido being closed for refurbishment we were unable to run the aquathlons in 2017.
