We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up or fight like hell!

I am racing 800km through the Alps to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support because we need to fight cancer, there is no other option!

Macmillan Cancer Support

We give you the support you need to live life as fully as you can

Charity Registration No. 261017


Over the years I have always asked for your help to raise money for amazing causes while I do some athletic endeavour, which I have neither trained enough nor prepared properly for, in a hope that the pictures of my struggle through the event will give you a smile while you donate. My friends, family and even strangers have helped me raise millions for amazing causes.

As a cancer survivor, and someone who lost their mother a few months ago to the wretched disease, it was obvious which cause I should raise money for in the UK.

The last time I asked for your support was 2015, when you pushed me through Ironman Lake Placid. Despite dislocating my patella eight days before the race I limped through to the finish line because I could not let you down after your amazing generosity to the hospital that patched me back together, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

So what am I doing this year that’s different from other years as a fund raiser … Is it a marathon ?? Is it another Ironman? 

Nope, it’s a stupid midlife crisis!

On August 26th I will be racing in Haute Route Alps, which is a grueling 7-day bicycle race, through the French Alps covering 800km and climbing over 20,000 meters.

To give you a better idea on how tough the climbing will be, it’s the same as cycling vertically up the Empire State Building 55 times!!!
