A challenge anyone can do (without loads of training or special kit)
This is an event almost ANYONE can do. Bring the family or come on your own with us. Kensal Queens Park took the largest group of people to this last year – almost 100. Their youngest fundraiser was 5 years old and the two eldest were 65!
And none of them were very fit. The fast ran fast; the majority of us got round the best they could.
A great way to raise money
It’s very easy to get sponsorship and we can help with that! (or just come join the fun with no sponsorship if you’re prepared to pay the entry fee yourself).
Previous team members have raised over £40,000 for local charities from this event the past three years. Generally people are very happy to sponsor a friend trying Triathlon for the first time. It’s in beautiful grounds, with kids events (they can raise money too or leave that bit to the adults!) and “Sprint” and “Super Sprint” mini-Triathlon distances.
And there are Relay events – so if you don’t like swimming (750 metres) you can just do the cycle (22 km) or run (5.4 km).
Meanwhile, if you agree to raise £100 or more for a local charity, The Moberly Sports Centre, the Maqam, Lizzie Barker PT and Gym Locomotive will help you get into shape for free!
If you sign up, you’ll be joining others raising money for other local charities, including Salusbury World, St Laurence’s Larder, Sufra NW London, and Kensal Rise Library. It would be lovely to get a bit of competition going!
Thank you The Moberly Sports Centre, The Maqam, Daniels Estate Agents, bagsoflove, Maciej at Gym Locomotive, Lizzie Barker PT, RISE Design Studio for all your support with this event (and all the light-hearted training).
How much will it cost me?
We are offering places at a 70% discount to the Sunday team entry price in return for pledging to raise sponsorship money.
Sprint or Super Sprint ‘individual’ event places (where you do all three legs: swim, bike, run) are £39.
A Relay place is just £19.
We can offer these prices if you agree to raise at least £100 in sponsorship or the local charity you choose. We promise you will find that level of sponsorship very easy and we’ll help you achieve it.You ALSO get these fantastic local benefits, thanks to our kind sponsors:
1. 70% off entry price
2. A ‘month at the Moberly’ Sports Centre to get into shape
3. Free ‘Swimming Nature‘ lessons at the Maqam
4. Free strength and mobility “MOT” with Maciej at Gym Locomotive
5. Free Lizzie Barker Group Training on Tiverton Green
6. Free lifts to Denham to try open water swimming (and lots of team runs and cycles)
7. “Kensal” Tri training top designed by Red Giant
8. Warm fuzzy feel from helping local charities + being part of the largest team at Blenheim
We will also pool lifts to Blenheim, help source a bicycle (note you can even ride a shopping bike), and we may be able to lend wet suits.
Email email@example.com to reserve a place. Places will likely sell-out by April and if you want to get fitter for the event then training opportunities with our groups are already available.
