Bolton Triathlon- Raised £1070 of £2000 Target
Bolton Triathlon 2021
Event takes place on Sunday 26th September @ 7am.
Maqsood is attempting to complete the Triathlon Bolton to raise money and awareness for Medical projects in Gaza and for the local charity Fort Alice who work with women and children who have suffered from Domestic violence.
The event will take place in the IRONMAN UK course. Starting with A ONE LOOP 1.9KM (1.2-MILE) SWIM IN Pennington Flash Country Park followed by a 90.1km (56 mile) cycle through Lancashire countryside ending with a two-loop 21.1km (13.1 mile) run through Queens park before running down the red carpet in Bolton Town Centre. This is going to be a huge test for his fitness, stamina and endurance, both mentally and physically. Each element is an achievement in its own right, and he has to do all three in under 8 hours with over 3000ft of climbing.
Training Camp has been endured in very hot, humid and cold weather. He quickly realised it was going to be even more challenging then the iron man which he completed in JULY 2018. Early morning winds were strong and the water is rough, which increased the challenge and made him appreciate the varying conditions you encounter swimming in open water.
Thanks again for supporting these wonderful charities who are doing incredible work for children, women and families who even after the Coronavirus pandemic, will perhaps never get the quality of life many of us simply take for granted.
