Hello all.

I need the communities help, I am in London leaving for Manchester today. However my airline lost my luggage, I have my bike, and wetsuit but I need to buy a new tri suit, as well as running shoes (I run in Newtons)

Is there a tri shop I should go to in London or Manchester


Thank you very much

Where are you in London? In terms of places I can think of that will definitely have (EDIT - tri suit) stock in, you have Sigma in Kingston (SW - potentially could make it on the way to Heathrow) or you have Ocean Leisure underneath charing cross train station.

I'm less aware of stores in the more northern parts of the city.

EDIT - running shoe shops wise, Runners Need seem to stock Newton's and there are loads of those dotted all over the city

If you can find somewhere in London go with that as there aren't any triathlon shops in Manchester. Guess there will be some potential of buying kit at the expo?

I haven't been to Sigma for a while but there used to be a running shop opposite, Lansing Running IIRC, they used to stock Newtons as I've bought them from there before.

Ok got the kit sorted at Sigma thanks guys


This is a super long shot but does someone have a Garmin I can borrow, or 910,310 or a cycling head unit that has power in it


Thanks again guys

Well here is an update,

Luggage was found back in Canada, arrives in Gatwick at 9:30am. Don't know if I can pick it up, and still make athlete check in by 1pm.

Sent and email to the RD, hopefully he gets back to me soon.

Might have to have my wife get the bag for me while I register then she takes the train out to Manchester pick her up then finish gear drop off.

Not an easy start I tell you

If you're still in the Kingston area, and still need one, I can lend you a 910.

Wow,

Amazing to see the support everyone, thank you very much!!!

My gear arrives tomorrow at 9:30am. Unless I hear from the RD giving me the ok for a late package pick up I'll register in the morning and have the wife pick up the bag and train to Manchester and I'll pick her up with the gear for the bag drops
