Last weekend TechQuarters took part in the London Triathlon to raise money for Alzheimer’s Society. We entered 2 Teams in the sprint; with CEO Chris Dunning and his brother Andy entering the full triathlon.
Team 1 – Josie, Liam, Phil
Team 2- James, Simon, Amber
The TQ teams convened at 12, in plenty of time for the swimmers to set off at 12:50. Even though the weather was pretty horrid and there was a strong current in the Thames that afternoon, both James and Josie managed to complete the swim in less than half an hour! Next it was down to Liam and Simon to complete the 20k bike ride; ignoring the rain and dodging the standing water both guys finished in great times as they passed the batons on to runners; Phil and Amber.
Overall both teams finished in under 2 hours and everyone managed to beat their times from the Blenheim Triathlon which is fantastic! CEO, Chris also made a comeback after having been just pipped to the post by brother Andy in the Blenheim triathlon last month ; and completed the London Tri in an impressive 1:20.
Overall thousands of people came out to compete in the London Triathlon; Gordon Ramsay also made an appearance – raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Well done to everyone that took part on Saturday and a big thank you to those that came out to support the team, as well as those that made donations to Alzheimer’s Society.
