It’s just two months until Dean Benson, Director at Visualsoft, competes in the prestigious (and incredibly gruelling) Ironman 2010 in Switzerland. Participants in the triathlon event have to complete a 3.8km swim, 180km bike ride, and 42.2km run – all in one day!
Dean, who only very recently learnt how to swim, has undergone a huge amount of training in the run up to the big day, and has formed a coalition with three other local contenders who are supporting each other in preparation of the life-changing challenge. For more on this see the Team Iron site.
So far, Dean has managed to raise almost £1,500 in sponsorship support, which will be donated to Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice – a very worthwhile local charity.
There’s still lots of training to do, and with only eight weeks to go it’s serious business, but we’re all rooting for Dean and wish him the best of luck.
