Opportunity for wacky companies to enter a Triathlon with a difference
Windsor Lions have today launched a major fundraising event with a difference – and what a difference! The Windsor Wacky Races Triathlon, to be held at Dorney Lake on Sunday 23rd July (starting at 1.00pm), is a major opportunity for local companies and individuals alike to participate in a fun, wacky Triathlon consisting of a Pram/Cart race, a Scooter race and a race across Dorney Lake on an Inflatable!
Teams of four are invited to enter this Triathlon to help raise money for local charities such as Thames Hospice, Alexander Divine or perhaps for an individual’s named charity.
Windsor Lions event organiser, Lion Phil Bullock, enthused about this unique event: “Our Club has staged many crazy events over the years but this one is something special. We see it as a major extravaganza of fun at what is the wonderful setting of Dorney Lake, Eton. Hopefully we will attract dozens of Teams from the local area and raise a large sum of money for our charities. It really will be a great day out for families”.
The event consists of teams of four people who will undertake – a 1500 metre pram or cart race; a 2000 metre scooter race relay; and a 250 metre paddle on an inflatable across Dorney Lake. Prizes will be awarded for the “best dressed adult baby” in the pram; the fastest team in each event category and a special prize for the overall winner of the afternoon’s three races. Each Team is asked to pay an admission fee of £100 and to raise a minimum of £400 in sponsorship, 50% of which going to the chosen charity and the balance to the other charities. Spectator admission is free with car parking at £2.
Lion Phil Bullock concluded: “This is a great opportunity for company to challenge company or departments to challenge other departments within an organisation. Or just for individuals to get together and “have a go”. Registrations are invited now – see www.windsorlions.co.uk for more information and a registration form (available at http://www.windsorlions.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/Wacky-Races-Registration-Form-2017.docx ).
