Thiu’s Ironman Challenge

By Neil Gillan

Today (Sunday) is the day of Thiu Barnard’s iron man challenge. A daunting 140.6 miles of human endurance.

A 2.4 mile sea swim, 112 mile bike ride and a full 26.2 mile marathon. Having seen the course and the size of the waves in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, I don’t envy any of them.

If you want to follow his progress the event is being streamed on tv and you can also track him on this link. His race no. is 874

He is doing this to raise money for Sapper Support if you would like to know more and give a donation please visit the JustGiving page below
