140 Years to Tri

Team photo

What is our challenge?  In August 2018 we will be attempting to break a record by running, swimming, and cycling from Marble Arch (London) to the Arc de Triomphe (Paris) as part of a three man team.  The current record for a three person team stands at 51hrs 15mins.

Our team name is '140 years to Tri'.  We are all triathletes.  The 140 represents the total of our combined ages!

Team members are Paul Le Riche, Nick Johnson and Kelly Langley.

This is an ultra-distance triathlon known as the 'Enduronman Arch to Arc' or 'A2A.  It starts with an 87 mile (140km) run from London's Marble Arch to Dover on the Kent coast, then a cross-Channel swim (shortest distance 21 miles/33.8km) to the French coast, and finishes with a 180 mile (289.7km) cycle from Calais to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.  We are planning to attempt it in 1-hour stints.

Many would say that the A2A is the 'Ultimate' triathlon challenge for a triathlete.

We are funding the Arch to Arc attempt ourselves so all monies raised will go directly to St Rocco's.

I hope you feel you can donate to St Rocco's - no matter how small or large the donation, it will be very much appreciated.

See you all on the other side,

Paul, Nick and Kelly
