#TeamCalvert feels Super about Superhero Tri!

August 26, 2017

On the 19 August Calvert Trust Kielder and Calvert Trust Exmoor went to Dorney Lake for the Superhero Triathlon. The event consisted of different distance triathlons, with no time constraints and an anything goes policy, that allowed all participants to use any equipment they needed, to complete the race.

With celebrity teams, paralympians and a race completely designed with accessibility and disability in mind, we had to be there!

Our Fundraising team, arrived early on Saturday morning and set up the gazebo, giant connect 4 and everything you might need to know about Calvert Kielder and Calvert Trust Kielder . Before exploring the fantastic Dorney Lake venue.

The day was a bit breezy and it made it hard for  the swimmers who had to go against the current in the lake but otherwise the sun was shining and the participants were all in Superhero mode.  Our Fundraisers watched the Celebrity teams start the day before cheering on #TeamCalvert.

The last #TeamCalvert  group of the day was Superhero Daisy supported by Mum and Dad. Daisy had been excited all day and it was great to see her paddle the lake on a paddle board, cycling in an adapted bike and final running to the end!  Calvert Trust Kielder and Calvert Trust Exmoor couldn't help but yell themselves horse throughout the day cheering on all participants.

It was an amazing day, watching families, friends and Superheroes cross the Finish Line after being able to take part in an event catered for everyone.
