Club member Barry Robinson is planning on competing in both the London Marathon and the UK Ironman this year in order to raise funds for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity.
The first of these challenges, the Marathon, he has already completed in a PB time of 03:35:19 which was 20 minutes faster than his previous best effort and resulted in £900 being notched up on the charity fund. His focus shifting to the UK Ironman in August, Barry recently competed in his first Triathlon of the Season, the New Forest Tri. He completed the course in 2hrs 13 mins made up of a 1.1km swim, 36km bike and 10km cross country run. The bike split, including the transition was 01:02:59.
