The challenge was simple really. I have taken the middle distance triathlon as the base and decided to multiply it by 52.
For those of you who don’t know a middle distance triathlon or as its better know a 70.3 triathlon is
1.2 mile swim (either pool or open water)
56 miles cycle
13.1 mile run (half marathon)
All this totals 70.3 miles x 52 events =3655.6 miles
Now the triathlon season generally runs from the start of April to the end of September. In 2017 this is 26 weekends, which will give me 52 days to complete this challenge.
We sent off an application to make this a world record attempt. The good news is this was expected; but unfortunately the lists of conditions we would need to meet, make it an almost impossible task. That doesn’t take away from the challenge and we will be pressing ahead.
