While the general entry ballot is now closed, the opportunity to participate in the 2013 Virgin Active London Triathlon is still available via gold charities, Macmillan and Scope. Participants can secure a pledge place at theĀ  Virgin Active London Triathlon website and help raise money for these fantastic causes. In addition to the intrinsic reward of supporting such worthy charities, participants will also benefit from training guides and advice, post race refreshments and a loud fan base cheering them on!

Each year the event receives bids from charities hoping to be Gold Charities associated with the Virgin Active London Triathlon, and this year Scope and Macmillan both submitted extremely compelling cases.
