On Sunday 28th July our Managing Director Jamie Barrett managed to complete the Virgin Active London Triathlon, here is what he had to say about the event;

“Swimming isn’t my strength but I managed to get through the 1.5km swim in under 30 minutes, 29 to be exact. Unfortunately I struggled getting the wetsuit off, which was a bit disappointing after a reasonable swim. Bike leg followed and went much better than expected, I got round the 40km route in 1 hour 3 mins. I was expecting between 1 hour 10-15 mins! The run was a little disappointing for me, but really good for the race. Nobody overtook me throughout the whole 10km course and I overtook hundreds of people, significantly adding to my end position.

I came 282 out of 4575 in my field with a final time of 2 hours 20 minutes and 6 seconds (Olympic Distance 1.5km, 40km, 10km) – which I was more than pleased about considering I only started triathlon this year and the London event was my third.”

So far Jamie has raised £220.00 for the Action for Children Charity and is still accepting donations at www.virginmoneygiving.com/JamieBarrett2
