In a moment of madness I've agreed to enter a triathlon for my mate Dan's daughter Scarlett - http://www.scarlettsdragons.co.uk Sponsor me! xcolin

The British rocker will tackle the swim, bike and run event in his native Oxfordshire, at the Blenheim Palace Triathlon which takes place over two days in June, the 7th and 8th at the Blenheim Palace, in Woodstock, England.

Again the title sponsor for the triathlon event is the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research organization. In 2013 the event helped raise over £300,000 towards vital blood cancer research and hopes to surpass that goal this year.

Greenwood, whose is accustomed to jumping up and down on stages around the world will have to train differently to prepare himself for the rigors of a triathlon. He will be in good company, as team leader and friend Dan Clarkson has assembled a team of over 20 people to join in Scarlett's Dragons triathlon fundraising campaign.

The team so far has raised £13,208.00 towards the target goal of £50,000.00
