The Trapeze indoor charity triathlon

| August 08, 2015

This year, Trapeze UK is taking part in a static charity triathlon to raise money for the British Cardiac Patient’s Association in memory of our colleague Chris Gough, who passed away early in 2014. The event will see Trapeze employees cover a total of 1,300 km – the distance between our head office in the UK, and the Trapeze offices in Aarhus, Denmark.

The journey, which began on 3rd August and continues through August, will see staff travel some 276 km by foot; 205 km on a rowing machine; and 819 km by bike – that breaks down to 14km, 10km and 41km respectively per day!
