Tim's page in memory of Paula

I'm completing a dozen challenging events in 2017 for DKMS because I want to raise money in memory of a good friend

We increase the pool of stem cell donors to give patients a second chance of life


Just before Christmas our family said goodbye to a great friend.

Once met, never forgotten, Paula was a strong, fearless, loyal and generous person, and my wife's best friend.  Her death has left a hole in all of our lives, and I want to raise money to honour her memory.

This year I'm going to undertake twelve tough sporting challenges, one each month.  In this way I hope to raise a substantial amount for DKMS, the Delete Blood Cancer charity, to help them in their essential work.

Most will be official organised races, but some might be DIY ... but even in that case, they'll be significant.  I'll update this page as and when I enter new races or decide on a challenge for another month, but as of now here's what I'm doing:

January - 50 mile bike ride - DONE

February - Hoka One One trail half-marathon - DONE

March - Monmouthshire Three Peaks, a 20 mile circular walk-run including 3 mountains, 5000 feet of climb, and navigating in between - DONE

April - for this month, the challenge is an ongoing one, in which I aim to ride at least 500 miles total on the bike throughout the month

May - Blaenafon Triathlon (legendary for its horrific hills)

June - Cotswold 113 half iron distance triathlon (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, half marathon)

July - Velothon (90 mile bike ride)

August - TBC

September - Brutal Half iron distance triathlon (my main race for this year, including a half marathon run up and down Snowdon)

October - Marathon

November - TBC

December - TBC

TBC months,  races and events to be added soon... (but rest assured they'll be tough) 

Please sponsor me. It goes to a great cause.  As Paula would say, "Bloody crack on and do it."
