Competitors (triathletes might be stretching it a bit) are fine-tuning the exact ratio of Deep Heat to suncream required to survive tomorrow's three-part cycling, running and rafting event, with the hot weather expected to continue.
Lego, Mattel, Tomy/Treasure Trove, Spin Master, Character Options, Golden Bear, MGA/Zapf, Learning Curve, Vtech, BTHA All-Stars, ToyNews/Hornby, Vivid Imaginations, Hasbro, BBCW and Flair are all taking part in the event at Rutland Water.
Hornby has generously sponsored the ToyNews team to the tune of £1,000 while Rubies' £500 bid has won the auction for managing editor Ronnie Dungan's dwindling dignity by cruelly (despite pleas for an alternative costume) making him dress in Chelsea FC colours. Which. He. Is. Happy. To. Do.
