UPDATE (10 October 2017): The team at LFTC are very sad to have cancelled the Junior and Senior Aquathlons on Sunday 1 and 22 October. Better Leisure had assured us that the lido would be open following refurbishment however unfortunately there is a further delay. We are all really disappointed as we were so looking forward to running the event & having so many triathletes at London Fields. We have emailed all participants and are arranging for refunds to be issued . Many thanks for entering & your interest in the event, we will be back next year. If you need to contact us, please do so at events@lftri.co.uk.
