How to enter

If you would like to complete the London Classics, you will need to obtain a place in each of the events – there is no separate London Classics entry system. Participants must be aged 18 or over to take part in any of the events. Full details of the entry process for each event are available on the event websites. Remember, the three events can be completed in any order over any time period.

 

When you have completed two of the three events and have a confirmed entry for the third event, please complete this form with details of your results for the first two events. These results will then be verified and you will be invited to the special London Classics medal award area after you finish your third event.
