It has been quite some time since we got excited about planning something, and as you may remember our event last year was cancelled, so fingers crossed this will all not be in vain! Given recent guidance though, it is looking good that our chosen charity event for the year will go ahead.
I hear you thinking “what are they up to now?” and “how am I going to get roped in??” Well the good news is we’re not doing something crazy like a spinathon!…phew…we’ve got something much better lined up.
This year we will be taking part in the Castle Triathlon Festival of Endurance.
In September last year, our friends at Castle Triathlon put on a very successful, socially distanced race weekend so we are expecting it to be a challenging, yet fun weekend of racing!
Set over the 3rd & 4th July 2021 in the beautiful Hever Castle grounds and surrounds, the Carrington team will be taking part in cycling sportives, marathon relays, and other long-distance events to raise much needed support and money for Full Circle Fund Therapies Charity. And we’d love for you to join us.
Having had the Mayflyer cancelled last year, this is our chance to dig deep (into our own mental and physical reserves) and do something great for this wonderful charity.
