IRON MAN 2019 CHALLENGE

THIU BARNARD

Iron Man Challenge 2019

My name is Thiu Barnard and I am completing the Iron Man challenge on April 7th, 2019 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa and trying to raise as much money as I can for an amazing charity - Sapper Support!

I have only given myself 3 months to get fit and train for the gruelling event which includes 2.4 mile swim, 118 mile bike ride and a 26 mile marathon run.

Along with the actual event in South Africa, the gym I work for here in the UK (Hub 26, Cleckheaton) are raising money for the extremely worthy cause by also completing an Iron Man style challenge in the gym whilst I am in South Africa doing the real thing.

Please follow my blog and social media pages for updates on my training and how to donate.
