Good luck to Darren and Marc taking on the epic challenge of Triathlon X. The event, held over the Ironman distance started at 4am this morning in lake Windermere. The 2.4 mile swim is followed by a 112 mile bike ride which takes in every major climb in the Lake District. If this isn’t enough the final Marathon takes competitors to the summit of the highest mountain in England, Scarfell Pike.
To say this is a tough event is a massive understatement and for a race like this it’s important to get to the start line calm and relaxed. The last thing you need is to get to Ambleside and realise you’ve left your Tri suit in Bolton!
