A race that Jenson will not win...
Jenson Button has been the dominant force in Formula 1 this year but in August he will be taking part in a race that he has no chance of winning. The Briton will take part in the London Triathlon on Saturday 1 August. This will involve a 1500m swim, a 40km cycle ride and a 10km run. Button will be taking part to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation charity. If you would like to pledge a donation to support Jenson, you can go to the following link: www.justgiving.com/jensonbutton.
"I'm aiming to finish in the top 10%," Jenson says. "So no pressure!"
The event will take place in and around the ExCeL Exhibition Centre, in the Docklands. The event attracts a world class field of elite athletes and in addition around 11,000 other competitors. It draws a crowd of 30,000 people.
