Daniel started running about 3 years ago with a local running group (RunDMC) to loose weight and improve his lifestyle. He enjoyed this immensely so decided to enter local running events. Through the running events group he was fortunate enough to meet like-minded enthusiasts who also enjoyed cycling. It was not long before Daniel was cycling every Week.
As a natural progression he started to enter local cycling events. Through the running group he was introduced to the King’s Lynn Tri Club and started to take part in open water swims, duathlons and aquathons. Daniel took part in his first tri-event last year in Hunstanton and has been taking part in various events ever since, however due to CV-19 the events that he was wanting to participate in have been cancelled.
Daniel decided that due to the cancellation of these events, possessing a strong desire to maintain his current level of fitness, work towards a goal and challenge himself, he has decided to partake in a sponsored Triathlon on behalf of the One to One Project.
Daniel chose the One to One Project as he believes that mental health is a worthy cause, especially with the changes caused by CV-19 and would like to support a local mental health charity.
Daniel’s Triathlon features a 1.2-mile swim, a 56-mile bike and a 13.1-mile run.
He expects this to take around 6-7 hours to complete.
Daniel will be taking part in this Triathlon on 12th September.
To sponsor Daniel with his Triathlon, please go to Daniels GoFundMe page (gf.me/u/yphgm5) and donate whatever you can. You can also see a map of the route Daniel will be taking and get updates on his training progress:
