Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

In 2016 I will be attempting to set at least one new World Record across four challenges. Here is what, where, when and how I intend to accomplish my goals and how 'you' can be involved. 

Note: I am doing these challenges around my work & coaching commitments as well as around my ever so patient and understanding family. I will give up my social time and sleep to make sure I don't let myself, the charity, my family and everyone else that supports, encourages and sponsors me on this journey.

COMPLETED! Challenge one: (Official World Record attempt) To complete the most sprint distance triathlons on an official, sanctioned course in 12 hours. This record attempt involves completing each triathlon in full, in the correct order (Swim, bike, run) and over the standard sprint distance triathlon distances of 750m swim, 20km bike and 5km run. I will attempting this at the ver famous and stunning Blenhiem Palace triathlon. The race organisers have been amazing and have agreed to keep the course 'live' from 7:45am to 7:45pm (Saturday) specifically for my attempt.

COMPLETED! Challenge two:  (Training) To complete a 12hr brick session in Richmond Park. The course and distances I plan to achieve this challenge over are, two laps of Richmond Park's perimeter road (20km) followed by the Richmond Park Run 5km course. Both courses are far from flat and should provide me with enough of a challenge to raise money for Bloodwise but at the same time mentally and physically prepare me for the challenges in June at Blenhiem.

Challenge three: (Official World Record attempt TBC) To complete the most sprint distance triathlons on an official, sanctioned course in 24 hours. This record attempt involves completing each triathlon in full, in the correct order (Swim, bike, run) and over the standard sprint distance triathlon distances of 750m swim, 20km bike and 5km run. I am still negotiating with venues and logistics on this attempt as there is quite a lot involved. Watch this space for announcements!

Challenge four: (Training) To complete a 8hr Aquathlon AT TYM lake where RG Active hold their open water swimming. This will be a training challenge similar to the 12hr Brick session and give me an opportunity to practise getting my Huub wetsuits on and off multiple times. The distances will include a 3.2km swim and a 5km run that will be repeated continuously for the 8hr period. This will help with my preparation for the challenge at Blenhiem in June.

COMPLETED! Challenges five: (Training) This challenge is the same challenge and will be held in a 50m pool during the summer to help towards the Record attempt at Blenhiem. This challenge is a 5hr swim session made up of as many x 100m off 2minutes. Totalling 10+km the session will be in a swimming pool and I have decided to do a swim + recovery turnaround off 2minutes to allow people to join me. 100 x 100m is a famous swim session that tests mental and physical toughness and are actually the challenges I am looking forward to the most.

Challenges six: (Training) . This challenge is the same challenge and will be held in a 50m pool during the summer. This challenge is to complete  200 x 100m off 2minutes swim sessions. Totalling 20km the sessions will be in a swimming pool and I have decided to do a swim + recovery turnaround off 2minutes to allow people to join me. This is a famous swim session that tests mental and physical toughness and are actually the challenges I am looking forward to the most.
