    3 club members doing a triathlon

    Post  mivy on Fri Aug 14, 2009 3:08 am

    Myself, Mark Fear and Paul O'Flaherty (plus one other fool) are doing the Team Relay challenge in the Inferno in Switzerland this year. How on earth did we get ourselves into this mess?!

    The event starts with a 3.1km lake swim from Phil;
    Mark then takes the baton and cycles 97km up and down 2 mountains on the road;
    Paul continues with a 37km stretch on his new mountain bike: up one mountain and down the other side;
    Last but by no means least, I "run" (trudge / sob) 17km UP a mountain, no down bits for me to rest on.

    We're doing this on the 22nd August in aid of the Sue Ryder charity. Our sponsorship page is http://www.justgiving.com/reachforthepies

    We expect to be competing with teams that have actually done some real training, and have been up mountains before without using a ski lift!
