Tri 4 Patrick

20/07/2010

On what would have been Patrick’s 23rd birthday , the 7th August 2010, six very brave individuals have signed up to the London Triathlon at the Excel Centre in London.

Joe Wainright, Will Dott, James Lambdon, Mike Trim, Mike Chubb, and Chris Madden are all doing the Sprint Distance at the triathalon, which involves a 750m swim, a 20km bike, and a 5km run. Joe, Will , James, Mike and Chris all went to St Bedes School in Redhill with Patrick, and Mike Trim  is a University friend of James'. We are delighted that they have decided to this in aid of the newly launched ‘Patrick Evans Foundation’ and aim to collectively raise £2,500.

For Joe, Will, Mike Trim and Chris, this is their first attempt at the triathlon, but James and Mike Chubb are hoping to beat their last year’s time of 1 hour 34 mins 42 secs.

In Spring 2010, their training was at an early stage, with most of them doing individual training, and then in early summer they trained in small groups up to 5 times a week. In mid June, they have a week of solid training planned in Cornwall.

The intrepid triathletes

They will be informed of the start times about 3-4 weeks prior to the event and hope that they will all be in the same heat.

 Last year they had about 20 friends and family attending, and they would welcome as much support as possible this August.
