Help MCS this Bank Holiday weekend and support bankers in London to Paris challenge
Whilst you’re relaxing this August bank holiday, maybe by the beach, perhaps taking a stroll to the local pub - spare a thought for a team of 6 Deutsche Bank employees as they take on a grueling weekend long triathlon from London to Paris………and yes you’re right….it includes a channel swim!
Enduro Challenge 2010 consists of a run from Tower Bridge to Dover, then swimming the Channel to Calais and finishing with a cycle ride to Paris – and it’s in aid of Marine Conservation Society! The six team members (pictured below) will pit their endurance and ability against five other corporate teams. But this is anything but a bit of jaunt…it’s serious and competitive and the team hope to raise a staggering amount for MCS.
Simon Fawcett (Captain), Hugo Elliott, Adrian Phelan, Eleanore Bennett, Rahul Batra, Michael Mohr and Joe Turner (reserve), will run an 85 mile relay taking around 9 hours , they’ll do a 30 mile swim relay which could take up to 15 hours and they’ll top it all off with a 180 mile cycle relay expected to last about 9 hours.
The team aim to raise £30,000 for MCS which is one of Deutsche Bank’s chosen charities of the year for 2010.
