On Triathlon road event days, Hyde Park Corner and neighbouring roads will be closed from early morning and you will not be able to drive close to or across the race routes. If you intend to travel in the area, you are strongly advised to plan ahead.

The Women's Triathlon will take place on Saturday 4 August and the Men's Triathlon will take place on Tuesday 7 August. Athletes will complete a seven lap, 40km bike ride on roads between Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park. The roads on the Triathlon race route will be closed from 0200 and will reopen when it is safe to do so.
On Saturday 4 August, the Men's 20km Race Walk will also take place; this finishes between Constitution Hill and The Mall. These roads will already be closed as they are within the Central London Zone.
