Double Ironman 2014

31 May – 01 June 2014

Double Enduroman UK: Swim 4.8 Miles, Bike 232 Miles, Run 52 Miles

As you may know, Nick has, in recent years successfully completed a Triple Ironman distance triathlon (2011) and in 2012, a Qunituple ironman distance triathlon.  After a year off from endurance events, Nick is now completing the set by tackling a Double ironman distance triathlon.

Nick’s wife Leigh will be supporting crew thanks Leigh!

The event starts at 06:00 on Saturday 31 May 2014. The first segment is the 4.8 miles swim, which will be taking place in open water, in the lake.
The swim is immediately followed by jumping on the bike for 232 miles of cycling.
Then comes the double marathon, yes that’s 52 miles of continuous running. The route for the run presents some hazardous terrain including woodland, tree roots, and tough climbs and will include racing in the dark at night so Nick will need to wear a head torch to navigate through the dark woods.

The event is scheduled to finish the next day, on Sunday 01 June. This is the crazy world of the endurance athlete, not the normal world of triathlon racing!

Location The Enduroman Ultra Triathlon Championships are taking place at the Avon Tyrrell Outdoor Centre, Bransgore, Hampshire, England BH23 8EE, which is in a 65 acre private estate in the stunning New Forest.
