Getting ready for The Blenheim Palace Triathlon!

I'm taking on the Sprint Team Relay at the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research Blenheim Palace Triathlon on Sunday 8 June, along with 20 colleagues from the IT firm Damovo

When we asked the workforce earlier in the year who wanted to sign up, we had a brilliant response and we’ve managed to get seven teams of three, which is 20% of Damovo’s head office, for the Corporate Sprint Team Relay. We had a raffle to randomly assign which team each person would be in.

I’m doing the 19.8km cycling leg and I’ve been training hard. I’m just coming back from having a child, so this is my first major sporting challenge in a while! I started off on a static bike at home and I’ve progressed to two long rides outside each week. I found it hard work at first, but I’ve actually really enjoyed it. 

Our colleagues who aren’t taking part have really got behind us and lots of them are coming along to cheer for us on the day. There’s even been a sweepstake to build up a bit of rivalry between the teams.

The whole experience of getting ready for the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research Blenheim Palace Triathlon has been great for team building and motivating everyone. A lot of us would never have taken on a challenge like this before, so there will be a big sense of achievement when we finish. A few of our staff work remotely so it’s also a good opportunity to get everyone together.

We really want to raise as much money as possible for the lifesaving work that Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research do and we’ve set up a fundraising page at uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/Damovo
