Eurostar Tri-City-Athlon announced

A swim, bike and run across three cities in one day

Eurostar has announced that to celebrate its partnership with London 2012, it is to hold the first-ever triathlon event across three cities in one day – 14 September 2010 – with a swim in Paris, bike in Brussels and run in London: the Eurostar Tri-City-Athlon.

The swim A 1.5km swim in the Bassin de la Villette in Paris. The Bassin de la Villette is located in the 19th arrondissement and is the largest artificial lake in Paris.

The bike A 40km ride on the roads around the King Baudouin I Stadium area (formerly Heysel Stadium) in the north-west of Brussels. Participants will complete 5 laps of an 8km circuit. For safety, the roads will be closed to cars during the event.

The run A 10km run in Regents Park, one of the Royal Parks of London, located just to the north of Central London. Participants will complete three laps of a 3.3km circuit within the park.
