Tour De Godwin

The cycling team is ‘back on track’!

After a year in which pandemic restrictions prevented spectators supporting the triathletes competing in the Blenheim Triathlon, September 2021 will see the Tour de Godwin cyclists heading off to Blenheim Palace once again!

Instead of driving to Blenheim Palace to support the Hall Triathletes, Chris Godwin and his band of merry cyclists – parents, friends and staff – will once again ride from The Hall to Blenheim, a distance of around 70m/110km, in an effort to raise a fund for three charities supporting children’s causes; sadly over the past 18 months we have all seen how disproportionately the coronavirus has adversely affected so many young people, in so many ways.

  • to provide mental health support for children affected by epilepsy under the care of our local University College, London Hospital
  • to fund Apart of Me, a pioneering charity which supports children who have suffered bereavement
  • to help Coram’s Fields, a six acre site in Bloomsbury and its resident children’s & family counsellors

The Hall, led by the Triathlon Team is hoping to raise £100k this year; to help the fund-raising efforts, the Tour de Godwin asks for a minimum contribution of £200 from each participating cyclist, which can be a direct contribution, or sponsorship, or a combination which will go directly to this year’s charitable fund.

Tour De Godwin 2

Departure from The Hall will be at c.7.00am on Sunday, September 12, so that we arrive at Blenheim well in advance of the Triathlon start for those who wish to watch their loved ones compete. Return by road or rail. Depending on ability and experience, it is likely that three groups of varying speeds will set off from the school; Fast, Medium and Leisurely. The majority of the Tour group riders should arrive at The Hall’s marquee before the first wave of triathletes set off around midday, ready to cheer on and support their other halves and friends facing the triathlon challenges.

In 2021 the ride is again going to be mapped, guided and supported. It is open to anyone who wants to participate. The route to Woodstock is very picturesque in places and a time to stop for a rest is scheduled en route for refreshment and to admire the scenery. Please contact externalrelations@hallschool.co.uk if you would like to join in!
