Why not join the Roofing Racers team in this year’s London Triathlon and raise much needed money for their two chosen charities – Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital & Macmillan Cancer Support.

Following on from last year’s success which saw Roofing Racers raise a staggering £12,000 over the £50,000 target. This year they have raised the bar even higher by setting a whopping £70,000 target for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital & Macmillan Cancer Support.

Starting with a 750m Swim followed then by a challenging 20km bike ride and finishing with a gruelling 5km run. You can take part as an individual and complete all three disciplines alone or if you know anyone who is interested you can enter a team of three and take one discipline each.

After the main day event all participants are invited to a London hotel for a fun and informal awards dinner followed by an open bar and disco to really celebrate the day’s achievement in style…

Manager Director at SIG UK Exteriors, Philip Johns, comments on last years event: “We should be immensely proud of each and every one of the Roofing Racers’ team. Thanks to their valiant efforts, not only are we looking to hand over record donations to our two chosen charities, but we have generated a real sense of pride and camaraderie in seeing participants from the roofing, roofline and window industries all come together as one team.

“It was particularly pleasing to see many first timers at this iconic event, as well as our ever-faithful regulars who return year after year. Each and every one can hold their heads high as they savour their own personal triumphs and those of the Roofing Racers team,” adds Philip.

He concludes: “The popularity of Roofing Racers continues to grow steadily year-on-year and it is especially gratifying to know that both Great Ormond Street and Macmillan Cancer Support charities will continue to benefit enormously as a result of all our efforts. Indeed, over the last eight years, Roofing Racers has raised well over £370,000 for these two worthwhile causes.”
