General Information

The London Triathlon takes place at the EXCEL Centre in London's docklands area, to the east of the main city. Every year St Dunstan's, a charity which supports blinded ex-service men and women, enters a team of blind or partially sighted competitors to take on the challenge of the Olympic distance course. The Olympic course consists of a 1500 metre swim (in the Thames), a 40 kilometre cycle and a 10 kilometre run.

Jamie, ably guided by his brother-in-law, George Buckingham, has taken part in 2009, 2010 and 2011 with the main aim of beating the 3 hours mark. However, on the first attempt, his time was 3:01:24 and on the second attempt his time was 3:00:26!! In 2011, Jamie finally cracked the target time and completed the course in 2:52:14 (much to George's relief!)
