Hello, I was supposed to be taking part in the Ironman Nice triathlon to raise some money for charity but also to celebrate my 50th birthday. However that's had to be cancelled now because of the pandemic. So I'm going to try and do the distance in a different way......a 'virtual' Ironman!
I'm looking to raise as much money as possible for two local charities, St. Petrocs (this page) and K9 Crusaders a dog rescue charity in Cornwall, both of which really need our help in these challenging times.
So here's the details of the challenge. The swim (3.8km) is hopefully going to be in the River Fal, this will be my one outdoor activity. I'll be swimming with a safety kayak. The bike leg (180km) will be done in my garage on an indoor training on the Zwift platform. The run leg (41.2km - marathon distance) will be also in my garage on a treadmill, also on Zwift!
