National Sales Manager and fitness enthusiast Kevin Lindeque can now claim the prestigious sporting title of Ironman.
Cheered on by thousands of spectators, Kevin joined the other 1112 professional and amateur athletes for a 6:00am start at Bolton’s Pennington Flash for the 2.4 mile swim which was followed by a 112 mile bike ride and 26.2mile marathon run.
‘The whole event was a highlight, with the support from the people in Bolton and Chorley New Road being particularly memorable! The only low point of the event was having to walk the first few miles of the run because of an injured calf, however painkillers soon kicked in and I was able to run the rest of the way’.
Not one to bask in his glory for too long, Kevin has already set his sights on his next two events, Hardmoors 55 (an ‘ultra marathon’ consisting of a 55 mile run across the North Yorkshire moors) and The Outlaw (another Ironman distance triathlon), both in 2012. As the cold and dark winter months approach, everyone at SWS UK wishes Kevin the best of luck with his unrelenting training schedule and we look forward to hearing about the success of his future events.
