We (Ange & Richard) are taking part in Ironman UK 2019 in Bolton in aid of Wishes 4 Kids. An Ironman event is a 2.4 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile cycle, finishing with a marathon (to be completed within 17 hours). We are also running the 2019 London Marathon in April.
We have supported Wishes 4 Kids, a small local Leicestershire charity for over 11 years, and have completed many fund raising challenges. These have included running various marathons ('12 in 12 months' for Richard, '4 in 4 weeks' for both of us to name a few). We have also cycled from Lands End to John 'O' Groats, cycled from Home (Ashby) to Rome, plus we organise various events and help out at the charity whenever we can.
The Ironman UK event is without a doubt a huge challenge, unlike anything else we have undertook. We have not only got to train for the physical challenge, but prepare ourselves mentally.
All of our challenges are completely self-funded, therefore EVERY PENNY raised will go directly towards granting wishes for very poorly children in Leicestershire.
