In a bid to encourage more women to take up tri, 220 Triathlon has teamed up with Limelight Sports and Her Spirit to recruit, train and support 20 women through their first triathlon experience at London Triathlon on Saturday 27 July 2019.
Here’s why we named London Tri one of the best triathlons for beginners in the UK
