One review of “Bloodwise Blenheim Palace Triathlon”

    MAKE 2018 A TRI-UMPHANT ONE

    The Bloodwise Blenheim Palace Triathlon is an annual event in the heart of Oxfordshire.

    Blenheim is the UK’s second largest triathlon, arguably the most prestigious but definitely the most picturesque. Last year around 7,500 people took part in the event, with more than 1,000 of them raising an amazing £300,000 to fund ground-breaking blood cancer research.

    Everyone who takes part is a hero to Bloodwise, none more so then Katy Patient, 43, from Stevenage who ran in support of her young niece, Emily, who was sadly diagnosed with leukaemia at just six years of age. Katy says: “Emily is the reason I wanted to raise money for Bloodwise, so research can continue and we can find better, less invasive treatments for all types of blood cancer.” It is messages like these that make this event so important to Bloodwise and all the people who rely on the charities services.

    Over the years the best in the world have tested themselves on this terrain, such as Olympic champion’s the Brownlee brother’s. This event has also been broadcast on TV for a number of years and has attracted celebrities like sporty spice Mel C to take part.

    The area is a UNESCO world heritage site and is traditionally known as the season opener for fans of the sport. This is fast becoming one of Oxfordshire’s showpiece events and is open to all types of abilities. Participants can choose to enter a super sprint (750m swim/19.8km cycle/5.4km run) or sprint distance (400m swim/13.3km cycle/2.9km).
