Triathlon Team

It’s ‘all systems go’ for the Blenheim Triathlon, September 12th, 2021

We are delighted that over 70 parents, teachers and friends will be in the Tri Team this September as we aim to raise £25k for a fund to support 3 children’s charities:-

  • to provide mental health and wellbeing support to 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 green site for children in Bloomsbury & its resident children’s & family counsellors

Members of the Team have been training hard over the year, in groups and individually, in preparation for the Sunday 12th Sprint triathlon.  The event is the culmination of that training and preparation – those cold winter runs and cycles, those icy dips in the Hampstead ponds and the pounding around the streets of Belsize will come to make sense! This year the Tour de Godwin will cyclists will also join in our fundraising, riding from the school to Blenheim, a distance of around 110km.

One important side-effect of training for the triathlon throughout lockdown was the mental health benefit experienced by members of the team. Through the long winter months, through the spring and now into summer, we are really keen to bring this benefit to the community’s attention and encourage people to join in the run training.

Background

The Hall has entered a triathlon team at Blenheim for the last 6 years and the beautiful surroundings of Blenheim Palace have proven the perfect setting. Even last year, undeterred by the global pandemic, The Hall Triathlon Team were there in force as the team undertook its annual challenge to complete a sprint triathlon on 13 September 2020. The long-awaited race (postponed from late May due to Coronavirus) was a huge personal challenge for each and every member of the team – for first-timers and old-timers alike; 21 people competed in order to raise more than £65k for JDRF, the leading UK charity that funds research to treat, prevent and cure Type 1 Diabetes.

Since 2015, more than 130 have joined us for their first triathlon and have raised more than £250,000 for various charities.
Do come and join us. It’s great fun, it’s a great way to meet people and it raises loads of money for good causes.
