,Celebrating my 70th Birthday with Triathlon Challenge
Rutland Water-18 – 19 June 2022
After being energetic for 50 years in the plant and access hire industry, I plan to celebrate my 70th birthday this June with the launch of a charity event of a different kind. I’m starting a unique 70 mile charity triathlon around beautiful Rutland Water, and I hope you can join or support me.
Starting on Friday 17 June and ending on Sunday 19 June, it will consist of:
– 20 miles specified walk around the lake
– 26 miles circle around the lake, will include peninsular island
– 24 miles of night sail on a lake path
We will begin proceedings on Friday night with a barbecue where we will formally hand over donations to representatives of three carefully selected charities close to my heart:
– Sability, an RSC charity that provides sailing facilities for the disabled.
– RNLI, Lifeboat Charity.
– Air Ambulance.
Would you like to join or sponsor?
I am looking for 30 companies to help me fill in 30 vacancies with an entry fee of £200 per person – this will be a charity donation. I hope you can participate yourself or sponsor someone to participate.
Additional Notes for the Festive Weekend,
Bring your own bike or rent one locally – electric bike rentals cost around £25. Accommodation – We are looking forward to securing accommodation at the sailing club but there are plenty of nice hotels and B&Bs locally or bring your own caravan/motorhome and pitch in at around £10 per night. Don’t worry if you are not blessed with sea legs the boats will be captained by local club members and you will be part of the crew. We are looking for a £20 per person contribution towards the cost of Friday’s presentation barbecue.
Anyone who wants to help with the event – participate, act as a guide, or simply donate to the event will be welcome. just contact me by email [email protected] Or text/call me on +44 (0)7968 959579 to book in a rep.
I hope to send sponsorship forms to any company interested in supporting the event upon completion of all aspects of the event.
Thank you very much, hope with your help we can make this event happen.”
