We hope everyone had a great Christmas & New Year and what better way to start 2017 than with a fundraiser! We’re teaming up with our good friends Swimming & Water Polo and doing a triathlon. Not just any triathlon, an Ironman distanced triathlon. Now we know you may think this is madness, after eating our bodyweight in Chocolate over the Christmas period, so we’re breaking it down.
Teams of three or four will try and complete the required distances between them. How far you ask? A 2.4-mile (3.86 km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25 km) bike ride and a marathon 26.22-mile (42.20 km) run. Mad? Maybe, but it’s all in the aid of three great Charities. As it’s taking place during mental health week, our chosen charity MIND will be one of them, Guide dogs UK another, and the final charity is Friends of Buburi which is helping to provide healthcare to community in Western Kenya.
It’s all kicking off on Friday the 20th January. To donate find someone from Rowing or Swimming & Water Polo and fill out the donation form. We’ll definitely be needing some support during the event, so make sure to come along, even if it is to say hello (secretly we’ll have you doing a couple of lengths in the pool…).
More details will follow over the coming days, so keep an eye on our website, Facebook & Twitter. Make sure to give the guys over at Swimming & Water Polo a like & follow as well!
