Richard Branson yesterday officially launched the Virgin Active London Triathlon celebrity team, with the Virgin Group founder explaining he was “looking forward to seeing the amazing challenge take place.”
The celebrity team will see the likes of Louis Spence, Chelsee Healey, Jeff Brazier, Kay Burley, Oliver Phelps, Nicola McLean and Michelle Heaton all get to work on land, underwater and in the saddle.
This year’s race will see over13,000 participate, as athletes from across the world participate in the event under major London landmarks such as Big Ben and Tower Bridge.
