#7for7IM - Is a pure attempt at pushing something to the limit, inspired by a Rugby League Legend, Rob Burrow MBE..

Can someone really complete 7 Half Ironman Triathlons in 7 straight days....?

Swim, 1.2miles (1.9km), then cycle 56miles (90km) finally a 13.1mile (21km) half marathon....EVERYDAY for 7 days........ #7for7IM

Rob was a superb player, for Leeds Rhinos, as a Wigan Warriors fan, I usually sat watching him, with my kids, a small player for Rugby, but huge courage, watching him, slip tackles, breath taking tries and also making huge hits himself, against men, much larger, putting his body on the line each week for years and years.

He won every trophy pretty much there was to win, now dealing with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) with such a positive and brave attitude, can only inspire...#7for7IM, Dec 11th - 17th - let's do our best, an Attempt, not really sure this will come off, 50/50 at best, time to be pushed to the limit.

Funds will be split 50% between South Lancashire & West Yorkshire Branches of the MND Association.

March 20th, 2022 and April 3rd will also see myself attempt the Wigan Half Marathon and Manchester Marathon - within 14 days of each other, to raise further awareness for Motor Neuorne Disease!!
