Last week saw the 19th annual Hampstead Heath Duathlon, known informally as the Pondathon. It involves swimming in the lido, plus the men's, ladies' and mixed ponds and running between them all, then finishing on the familiar Parliament Hill athletics track.
Mornington Chasers had two official teams, plus a few individual entrants and other team traitors, I mean participants. It's all good fun and everyone enjoyed it (even those who had initially thought they only had to do one leg!). It was also lovely to see a bunch of Chaser spectators there to cheer us on, take photos and provide cake too. Great organisation was provided by the City of London Corporation, including a lunch buffet afterwards. I'd highly recommend it to everyone for next year! (Photo credit Maki Kimura)-Lizzy
