For those of us not lucky enough to have a ticket this thread is set up so that we can arrange a 'Pirate Corner' on the course somewhere to spectate

I think there are a fair few people who will be around to watch

Looking at the map from British Triathlon there are plenty of viewing spots and obviously I have no idea how busy it will be but will assume 'quite'

SOuth Carriage Drive by the junction of West Carriage Drive is looking favourite as the bikes go past 7 times and it is close to the Pop Up Shop, toilets and South Ken or Knightsbridge tube

If anyone has a better idea then please shout

Me and Sue will be around there

Not for me, I'm afraid. I have already pushed the goodwill limits of management at work. Gutted

I will definitely be around... probably get there very early seeing as I have the whole day off and make the most of it

How close can we get to the transition area? The map isn't the greatest (for simpletons like myself)

Unfortunately you probably will I'm afraid... race starts at 11am, so will be done before 1 and I don't think you will be able to get across in time

Hoping to be there. From where you say Melds, do you mean near the run course? I'm not really expecting the race to be decided on the bike, so would be keen to be on the run course? Somewhere along West Carriage or along the north side of the Serpentine would work?

26/07/2012 at 12:37

Seren, start at 11am, so finish c.1pm-ish?! I thin kthe medal ceremony is scheduled for c. 1.30pm

Hopefully I'll be camped out in front of the TV in reception! Might bring a softball bat in to make sure the TV's tuned to the right channel!

I thought it started at 11.30? 

Not that it matters too much

Gladys I am looking (if its the same map) at about quarter to 9 on the map - It looks as tho then we could see the bike and the run set up
What we need is for someone who is looking at the Womens Tri on the 4th to update us

The yellow line is the bike course and the red line is the run course
