Are you headed to the London Olympics but a little short on money?  Did you know there will be free Olympic events on the streets of London where you can watch for free?   These free London Olympic events include the Road Cycling, Triathlon and Marathon. Sure to be popular are the marathons. The women’s marathon takes place on Sunday 5th August between 11:00am and 2:00pm. The men’s marathon takes place on Sunday 12th August between 11:00am and 1:40pm. The marathon events will begin and end at The Mall, taking in such iconic London locations as St James’ Park, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament.

There are three further free events in athletics. The men’s 20 km race walk will take place on Saturday 4th August between 5:00pm and 6:30pm. The men’s 50 km race walk will take place on Saturday 11th August between 9:00am and 1:20pm. The women’s 20 km race walk will take place on Saturday 11th August between 5:00pm and 6:45pm.

In cycling there are four free events. The men’s road race takes place on Saturday 28th July between 10:00am and 4:15pm. The women’s road race takes place on Sunday 29th July between 12:00pm and 4:15pm. The road race events begin and end at The Mall, taking in a number of famous locations along the way, including Buckingham Palace, the Natural History Museum, Richmond Park, Hampton Court Palace and the beautiful town centre of Kingston upon Thames.

The women’s individual time trial takes place on Wednesday 1st August between 10:00am and 11:30am. The men’s individual time trial takes place on Wednesday 1st August between 1:00pm and 4:15pm. The time trial events will take place in south-west London, beginning and ending at Hampton Court Palace and taking in Bushy Park.

Finally, the men’s and women’s triathlon events take place in Hyde Park and are ticketed, but parts of the cycling route are outside the ticketed areas and will be free to view. The men’s triathlon is on Saturday 4th August and the women’s triathlon is on Tuesday 7th August.

Whichever free events you choose to see, we recommend that you also fit in a visit to the Olympic Park where the Olympic Stadium is located alongside various other stadia, purely to savour the magic of the once-in-a-lifetime atmosphere.

Another option is to London 2012 Olympics Job, which includes volunteering, so you may see events for free?

Volunteering
London 2012 will depend on up to 70,000 volunteers to make sure the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games run smoothly and successfully. You need to be able to offer 10 days of your time during the games and be available for training before.
