Hello, I am about to embark on my first triathlon with the goal of just getting round the thing in one piece. In preparation I have learnt how to swim and bored a lot of people with relentless talk of all things triathlon. The big event takes place on Saturday July 27th 2013 and starts with a 750m swim, followed by a 20k cycle, and a nice 5K run to the finish line. Ahhhh!
Although my motivation wasn't solely to raise money for charity I think it might be worth a few pounds to see me struggle through the thing in a hideously skin tight wetsuit!
Refuge is an incredibly important charity providing support for women and children when it's most needed. This year they are really suffering the effects of local authority funding cuts and your support will mean that they can keep the doors of their vital frontline services open.
