A HUGE Congratulations to the 3 Playle & Partners LLP teams who competed in the AJ Bell London triathlon 2017.
The build up to the London triathlon entailed last minute training, eleventh hour bike repairs and subtle questions trying to weigh up the competition!
The 3 Teams fighting out for Triathlon Glory were-
Happy And Dangerous – Hayley Poynter, Amy Turner and Daniel Jenkins
Team SLAM – Sarah Primarolo, Michael O’Donnell and Lauren Francis
Farrow’s Arrows – Charlie Hobson, John Farrow and Shanice Ling
Preparation time over, the big day arrived and a strong Playle & Partners presence arrived at the Excel Centre in London. Although feeling slightly nervous all of the teams were excited and looking forward to getting started.
Although Triathlon team glory was a large incentive for many of the teams participants, so too was the effort to ensure as much money was raised for Cherished Memories.
Cherished Memories is a local charity to Playle & Partners LLP and the charity does a fantastic job in organising special events for children with life threatening illnesses or terminally ill children along with their families that they can look back on and remember with happiness.
With that in mind all 3 teams exceeded all expectations and were delighted to complete the London Triathlon in a total combined time of 5 hours and 10minutes!
Which team won I hear you ask…. well the 2017 triathlon team champions are Team SLAM! Will they have to defend their title next year!?
Thank you to everyone involved in making the event such a success and helping to raise £2,000 for a great cause!
