Hey! It's Rich here, CEO of Runderwear. As mental health is so important, now more than ever, we are doing a family Ironman for Mental Health Research UK.
Many of you know, as a family we completed the Runderwear 60 day challenge and inspired lots of others to join us. Alfie our 5 year old son learned to ride his bike on the road and he did his first 5km run with us. We joined a great new local cycle club, Poole Grupetto and completed in time trials with other local riders. We swam in the sea and felt free from all that was going on around us.
Now it is time to put our training into practice and give back. The last few months have reminded everyone that your mental health can never be taken for granted. We decided to support Mental Health Research UK who research the causes of mental health illness to try and find better treatment for those that suffer from it - And so the Edmonds Family Ironman Challenge was born.
On 16th August 2020, we will be trying to complete an Ironman Triathlon in a day... 2.4 mile sea swim, 112 mile bike and a 26.2 mile run. I will do a half Ironman first and then tag my wife, Laura, who will also do a half Ironman. Alfie (5) and Elodie (2) will then do a scoot and run at the end to finish the family Ironman!
Thank you for any support you can give, and keep running!
Rich, Laura, Alfie & Elodie xx
