Story

On 3rd June 2011 I will be attempting to complete 10 Ironman distance triathlons in 10 days - a Deca Ironman. This means a 3.8km swim followed by a 180km bike ride and then a marathon to finish. Every day for 10 days..!!!

It'll be based in the New Forest and is the first time this event has been held in the UK. Follow my daily progress at: http://www.tobysmithson.com 

As I pursue my sporting ambitions and develop as both a coach and athlete I would like those less fortunate than myself to benefit in some way from my efforts. I have achieved so much through sport over recent years and believe play is the basic right of every child. This is why I have chosen to support Right to Play (http://www.righttoplay.com/uk/Pages/Home.aspx). A charity working in 20 countries across Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America that implements programs designed to develop basic life skills, prevent diseases, teach conflict resolution and instill hope in children affected by war, poverty and disease.  

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Please give generously. Many thanks.

Toby

PS - If you would like to cheer me on during the event then I would really value your support on any of the days. Please let me know so that we can make arrangements.
