After getting off the bike in London – 102.3 miles later! – he headed to Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire, to complete a huge triathlon – a 1.2 mile reservoir swim, a 56 mile cycle and 13.1 mile run.

“I am taking part in Ride London-Essex 100 and Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire in aid of Pelican Cancer Foundation. I have worked for Pelican since November 2015 and the charity means so much to me! I would be so grateful for any and all support.
Ride London-Essex 100 is a 100 mile bike ride starting in central London heading out to Essex before heading back to London to finish on Tower bridge. Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire is a triathlon comprising of a 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile cycle and 13.1 mile run. These two events will push me to my absolute limits. I have been training since the start of the year and it had been so hard to keep motivated, but I am determined to achieve my goal of finishing both events in one piece!
Being part of the Pelican team, I have been able to see the massive impact this small charity has and it’s mind blowing! It’s ability to support medical policy change, through seed funding ground-breaking research and organising national education programmes is fantastic. Being part of the positive changes made to diagnosis and treatment for cancer patients is a privilege.
I am so proud to work for such a small but mighty charity and want to do a everything to help secure its future after such a difficult two year!”
