2021 London Duathlon Postponed
To our London Duathlon community,
We hope that you and your loved ones are keeping safe and well at the moment.
We can confirm today that the current edition of the London Duathlon, due to take place on Sunday 25 April 2021, has been rearranged to Sunday 5 September 2021.
Despite the continuing challenges we are all facing, we have been reflecting on the positive developments in the fight against COVID-19. In particular, the fact that over 6 million people have already received their vaccination gives us great cause to be optimistic about our 2021 event calendar later this year.
Although it may well be the case that an April edition of the London Duathlon could be possible (albeit with major COVID-related restrictions), we have taken the proactive decision to move the event to the autumn. Planning and preparation for an event of this size requires a long lead time with our suppliers and partners, so we believe this decision to postpone until 5 September is in the best interests of participants and event staff alike. We can't, of course, guarantee that some restrictions won't need to be in place come September. However, we feel much more confident that staging the London Duathlon later in the year will give us the best opportunity to provide you with the full event experience, as well as giving you as much certainty as we can with regard your training journey, and therefore event enjoyment.
We’d like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for supporting us. As a small business, your support and patience really has been invaluable as it has enabled us to continue to plan and prepare these world-class events for your participation. We really look forward to welcoming you to the start line on Sunday 5 September and celebrating your achievements together like never before!

What happens next?
Your entry into the April 2021 edition of the London Duathlon will be automatically deferred into the Sunday 5 September 2021 event, for free. You DON’T need to take any action for this to happen.
- Any additional purchases will automatically transfer over too. So, if you bought: an iTAB or parking etc... it will be transferred to the rearranged date for you. Again, you don't need to take any action for this
