Zero Carbon EventsCrystal Palace Triathletes are aiming to host, what is believed to be, the first UK carbon-neutral race in 2008, in a bid to cut emissions produced as a result of the Crystal Palace Triathlon. You can read more about our plans for a carbon-neutral race and how we are hoping to achieve this in the summary prepared by Zero Carbon Events on our behalf.

2008 CPT carbon neutral race report available now.

One of our main initiatives is to encourage car sharing and use of public transport to and from the race. Jambusters are supporting us and have provided us with a car share database and links to various public transport and journey planner websites. If you are interested in car sharing please register on the Jambusters CPT car share website.
