This year Joe Malone, an amateur and seriously classy triathlete is hoping to raise funds for our Foundation by tackling 3 epic Scottish triathlons!
Here's a short rundown of the challenge from the man himself:
For starters...the Selkirk Standard Distance Triathlon on 20th May...1.5km swim, 40km cycle and a 10km run to finish.
For main course...the epic Edinburgh 70.3 Ironman on July, 1st...1.9km chilly sea swim at Preston Links, 90km cycle around East Lothian finishing at Holyrood Palace and finally a multi-lap 21km half marathon run around Holyrood Park.
And finally for dessert...the 3rd and final leg of my epic challenge is the St Andrews Middle distance triathlon on August, 26th. Another 1.9km cold sea swim in St Andrews East Sands, followed by 90km cycle around the East Neuk of Fife and finishing with a half marathon trail run along the Fife Coastal path in and around St. Andrews.
Please check out all the events and the Steven Sims Foundation website and come support if you can.
I hope this challenge will inspire you all and help me to raise an epic amount of money for this very personal and worthwhile cause.
