This year’s Marketing Triathlon got off to somewhat inauspicious beginnings when, following an whistlestop tour of South West London (thanks satnav), one of the team experienced a call of nature on the way to the venue and disappeared, Usain Bolt-style, into an industrial estate. Suffice to say, had a manhunt through the Slough one-way system been an event we would have triumphed.
Nonetheless, and with nary a pointy helmet between us, both our relay teams came in just outside the top third. Congrats all round to Dan, Mike, Andrew, Will, James and Jim. We left exhausted and happy, glad to have supported the worthy causes and none the wiser as to whether or not it is acceptable to wee in another man’s wetsuit.
Award for the steeliest expression of determination and the best use of Lycra goes to Mr Andrew Laity.
