Triathlon, Your Challenge, New Year Challenges

7 August 2021

Royal Victoria Dock, London

Take on the distance of your choice – Super Sprint, Sprint or Olympic and join GOSH for the world’s largest triathlon. No matter what distance you choose, take part in the London Triathlon 2021 to raise funds for seriously ill children at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

In 2021, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity is, once again, Gold Charity Partner for the London Triathlon - one of the world's largest and most iconic triathlon events taking place on closed roads across the capital. Join us, along with the Gordon and Tana Ramsay Foundation, to help raise vital funds and give seriously ill children the chance for a better future.

To take a GOSH place in the event we ask you to pay a £25 registration fee and pledge to raise a minimum of £450 (excluding Gift Aid).

A note to 2020 charity participants: If you hold a GOSH Charity place for the 2020 London Triathlon, your place will be automatically deferred to the 2021 London Triathlon.


With a range of distances to choose from, there’s something for everyone including team relays:

  • Super Sprint – 400m swim, 10km cycle and 2.5km run
  • Sprint – 750m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run
  • Sprint Relay – 750m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run
  • Olympic – 1.5km swim, 40km cycle and 10km run
  • Olympic Relay – 1.5km swim, 40km cycle and 10km run
Whether you’ve never dipped your toe in the triathlon water or you’re a seasoned pro, we’d love to welcome you to our team!

Want to take part as a relay team?

Not sure about taking on the full distance yourself and want to get a team together? Sign up to take on either a Sprint Relay distance or a full Olympic Relay distance! All we ask is that each team member pays a £25 registration fee per participant and fundraise £650 as a team (excluding gift aid).

To sign up as a team all individuals in the team need to register and one person must nominate themselves as Team Captain who will be the person who receives the race pack for the whole team. You will need to make sure you choose a team name and put this into the form so that we can make sure we are contacting you with all the correct information.

Got your own place?

If you're lucky enough to secure your own place for 2021, we'd still love for you to join our team. You'll get all of the same benefits and support, but won't have a minimum fundraising target to meet.


We know that taking on a triathlon can be daunting, but we’re here to help you every splash, spin and step of the way as you take on your incredible challenge.

As part of Team GOSH at the triathlon, you’ll receive:

  • a technical GOSH sports top
  • online training guides and advice from top triathletes 
  • invites to exclusive training events
  • fundraising advice, ideas and materials
  • encouragement along the route from our cheer team
  • on the day hospitality
  • the chance to win exclusive gear and prizes
  • dedicated support from a member of our events team

We need your support

Together, the Gordon and Tana Ramsay Foundation and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity want to help give some of the sickest children the best chance for life and make GOSH an even more extraordinary place.

Through their support of the Louis Dundas Centre for Children's Palliative Care, the Ramsay family has developed a deeper understanding of the amazing things that happen at GOSH, leading them to dedicate their foundation to supporting the hospital's work. To find out more about the work of the partnership, click here.

Every day, 618** children and young people from across the UK arrive at GOSH. The money raised through The Gordon and Tana Ramsay Foundation's partnership with GOSH Children's Charity on the London Triathlon will help these children and their families at a time when they need it most.

A better future for seriously ill children starts here.
