"The Kensal Rise Tri Team' - fun & fundraise at Blenheim Palace
Event Address: Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire Saturday 11 September, 2021 (likely to be mid-day)
Banish the Covid blues, get fitter and have a great date to look forward to, raising lots £££s for local charities!
It's been a truly rubbish year and it's been a shocker being one of our small local charities, losing so many fundraising events. So why not come together in a really fun way as a community to raise funds for the likes of Salusbury World, Brent Centre for Young People, a local food initiative, your local library or Solidarity Fund or a local cash-strapped school or nursery?
The grounds of Blenheim Palace offer a beautiful venue to try out a mini Triathlon - or share a Relay with two friends. You can go hell for leather for a personal best or as a first-timer just go for the fun, at whatever pace suits you.
Past members of the team have been people who had never done a sporting event before they reached 62 (and managed even without training) and super-fast competitive fit types!
There will also be children's entertainment and plenty of picnic space.
Over the next few months there will also be lots of local fun training, e.g. a 14 day Moberly Sports Centre pass, Sunday Boot Camp with Rachel Hosker, weekday morning group PT with Lizzie Barker, a swim lesson with Swimming Nature at the Maqam Centre, buddy runs, open water swimming at Hampstead and Denham, free strength, mobility and coaching advice with Maciej at Gym Locomotive as well as other benefits.
Capturing the spirit we do this in is Gareth Heal's fun training video here:
The event is already over-subscribed (8,000 people applied for 2,000 places last month) so we need to reserve places by Monday 26th April.
