GE is pleased to announce that, in partnership with British Triathlon, we have secured a hospitality venue inside Hyde Park for both Olympic triathlon events with places available for 2 lucky GE Triathlon Facebook fans and their friends.

The Olympic triathlons are free to view events and local authorities are warning that huge volumes of people are expected to take advantage of this. GE's hospitality is within the park and although it doesn't offer views of the race course itself, it does provide a great opportunity to escape from a very crowded Hyde Park.

GE will be hosting BTF members, friends and family of the GB team and lots of other VIP's before, during and after each race. Guests will be free to watch the race live within the hospitality or venture out onto the course to watch it in the flesh. A selection of food and drink will also be provided.

Anyone interested in entering the ballot should visit the Olympic ballot Facebook tab on the GE Triathlon Facebook page

Please note the following before applying for the ballot:

  • This is a hospitality venue inside Hyde Park, 50m from the course. There will be free food and drink but this does not include a ticket to see the race, although the majority of the course is free to view
  • You can either venture into the park to watch the race or stay in our facility and watch it on our screens
  • You can enter the ballot for one or both of the races- this is highlighted on the ballot form
  • You will only be able to win one prize (4 invitations) for one of the races
  • Due to a fear of overcrowding in the park, LOCOG has recommended to anyone attending these events to arrive pre 8am as the Park could be 'locked down'. GE won't take responsibility if you are unable to get into the Park
  • You may only enter the ballot once
  • Closing date for entries is 5pm Sunday 16th July. Successful candidates will be notified directly
