New recruit in serious training for the Blue Mile

Daily UK’s new Brand Assistant John is more than a team player – he’s our team swimmer! He’s been taking his training for the Daily Blue Mile challenge very seriously, getting up bright and early to train at the Tri20 Swimming Centre open lake in Reading. While stopping for a glug of water earlier this morning he was heard to gasp, “Michael Phelps doesn’t have a patch on me!”

Lee will be taking the plunge in the swimming leg of the Corporate Race, which takes place at Plymouth waterfront on 8th and 9th September, and is looking to beat Trade Marketing Manager Simon Reberga’s effort last year of around 34 minutes. Simon will be taking on the challenge of the kayak section this time instead.

“Michael Phelps doesn’t have a patch on me!”

The Blue Mile is one of a whole host of water themed activities featured as part of the Plymouth Marine City Festival. The Daily stall will be handing out free goody bags and there’ll be plenty of other exciting exhibitors to browse around too. There will be live music to entertain the crowds and hopefully spur on our team to some record-breaking times. Delicious sustainable cuisine will be available at the Boat House Café for hungry swimmers, paddlers, kayakers, walkers and spectators. And if that wasn’t enough to tempt you to join the fun, there will be a giant sea creature parade happening on the Saturday. Not to be missed!

We wish everyone taking part a fun-packed day. Keep up the training everyone, including Lee. Remember, Positive Mental Attitude can take you a long way…

You too can take part in The Daily Blue Mile, whether you prefer to swim, kayak, walk or even stand-up paddle board. To find out more visit
