Thomson and Bancks colleague John Stagg has committed to raising funds for Gloucestershire Young Carers by facing one of the most challenging of challenges – The Weymouth Ironman Challenge.
John says: “I’m not sure why I signed up to this challenge. This time last year I had not participated in a ‘healthy event’ for some 15 years. Perhaps the sheer awesomeness and unfathomable enormity of it all blinded me to what I was agreeing to.
“Kate bears most responsibility although the idea may have come from Hannah – they both completed (easy) triathlons in 2017. That said, the day is almost here … three half-marathons, three triathlons, and a 90-mile bike sportive later and we are ready (we think) … the transformation from desk-bound slob to finely-tuned triathlon machine is (almost) complete … bring on the 1.2 mile sea swim … the 56 mile bike ride … and the 13.1 mile run … Currahee!”
Wow – we wish you luck John. We’re in awe and thank you for choosing Gloucestershire Young Carers.
