The Epic Triathlon

Training for the Bob Graham Round in the Lake District.

One of my hesitations when deciding to spend 2011 pursuing microadventures around the UK was that perhaps I might feel starved of really tough challenges. How wrong I was. As an example of how a bit of imagination and madness can ignite mighty challenges, I want to showcase The Epic Triathlon project.

The Bob Graham Round, Land’s End to John O’Groats, and the Devizes to Westminster canoe race are three of Britain’s toughest endurance challenges.

Anthony Emmet and Bruce Duncan are going to combine all three, doing them consecutively and non-stop! This is a hardcore challenge, and one I shall definitely be watching and supporting whole-heartedly. Please do visit the Epic Tri website and support their efforts to raise funds for Cancer Research.

  2. Hi Al, the link to the epic tri website doesn’t seem to work. Not sure if it’s because the site is down or if the link is wrong?
