London Olympics: Hyde Park & the SerpentineEvents: Triathlon and Marathon Swimming

When the sun's out there are fewer places in London as scenic and special as Hyde Park, which hosts the Triathlon and Marathon Swimming events for the London 2012 Games. The Triathlon - which takes place on Saturday 4 August (women) and Tuesday 7 August (men) - will begin with a 1,500 swim in the iconic Serpentine Boating Lake before the athletes continue with a seven-lap, 40km bike ride around a stunning course that takes in Buckingham Palace and the Wellington Arch, as well as various paths around Hyde Park. To finish, there's a four-lap, 10km run around the Serpentine to the finish in front of a 3,000-seat temporary grandstand. With Hyde Park open to the public, many more spectators are expected to line the streets and paths to watch one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. A couple of days later, the Marathon Swimming event comes to Hyde Park with the women's 10km (Thursday 9 August) and the men's 10km (Friday 10 August) taking place in the Serpentine. They will be the only Swimming events to take place outside the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park. During the Games, Hyde Park will also be host to many music, theatre, film and cultural events which will run alongside the Olympics throughout the summer of 2012.
