Charity Registration No. 1059680

Story

In 2015 I was unable to run even a mile, and a good bike ride would be 15miles.  Slowly I have built up my fitness and now find myself in a position where I think an Ironman may be possible!  This is by no means a given..  I have to swim 2.4 miles (A distance that I have not yet completed), bike 112 miles and then run a marathon 26.2 miles.  

I have always wanted to raise money for Kate's Home Nursing, who were just fanastic in my Dad's final stages of life, a support to myself and my Mum.  My Dad hated the hospital environment and would not have been able to come home without their support.

I have left it late to put this page together as honestly the challenge is really quite big and I have been uncertain as to whether I would actually be able to do it.  I do feel I am in a position with the training I have been doing since signing up for it in October to now believe I do have a realistic chance of completion.  I have 17hours to complete the course and become an IRONMAN!

We are a Registered Charity set up to nurse patients in their own home through the last stage of illness and to support their families.
