The winner of the £1000 Evans bicycle is Philip Smith.
Enduroman himself, Eddie Ette drew the winning ticket at the
final Enduro squad meeting. Phil joined CSFB only 6 weeks
ago so it's a great welcoming gift for him!
Congratulations to CSFB’s Enduro Challenge team, who won
the inaugural Enduro Challenge London to Paris triathlon,
beating a strong and competitive Morgan Stanley team. This
event is expected to raise over £60,000 for our Charity of
the Year, Teenage Cancer Trust.
The teams from CSFB and Morgan Stanley fought an incredibly close triathlon, with winning margins of less than five minutes for both the 80-mile London to Dover run and 180-mile Calais to Paris cycle legs. CSFB's Channel swimming experience proved decisive, beating Morgan Stanley by over 90 minutes to reach the French coast in 12 hours.
On Tuesday 1st August 2001, a man called Eddie Ette arrived
at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris – tired, tortured, triumphant.
He’d just run 87 miles, swum 29 miles and cycled 180
miles. He’d just earned himself an entry in the Guinness
Book of Records.
is the Enduro Challenge?
Based on the original Enduroman
concept, the Enduro Challenge is a race from London to Paris.
The race involves running from London to Dover, swimming across
the English Channel and finally cycling from Calais to Paris.
In August this year, 6 fit, committed and daring people from
CSFB will repeat that ultimate triathlon – racing against
Morgan Stanley to be the first team to reach Paris.
Our 6-person team will be raising money for the Firm’s
Charity of the Year 2005, Teenage Cancer Trust. They’ll
run from London to Dover, swim from Dover to Calais, and bike
from Calais to Paris. It won’t be easy. They’ll
be tackling the challenge as a relay, swapping the baton every
