Worshipful Company of Cordwainers

Cordwainers at the Blenheim Triathlon 2014

Posted by: Ivan Doric Date: 23 May 2014

With just a week top go, and having overcome the obstacles of missing kit and a stolen bike, the Cordwainers are collectively in top form.

The pros among us have apparently become very au fait with discussions about the enhancing qualities of the wetsuits and the plus side of elastic laces. You will easily spot these athletes as they swap their wine for high energy drinks at the Company functions.

Comparing kit and training tips aside, we are also 92% towards our total target. Sasha’s team and Three Goats Gruff have managed to maintain their lead on the fundraising league table but the margins are closing. The LCF Awl Stars team have overtaken the Master (don’t say we didn’t warn you) meanwhile Team Blanford has moved up three places and Hot Footers has hopped over Tricky-Trishaws and KF2 Flyers. The Skinner sisters and Fleet of Foot continue to play leapfrog with each other, but the biggest position change this week goes to Henry Lindsay’s team who has shot up six places. I fear they may also have this turn of speed on the day itself ….

Do come and enjoy a good family day out at Blenheim and see for yourselves on the Sunday 8th June. We hope to see many of you there.
