Triathlon X - Chris Perry you nutter!!


Triathlon X is described by the organisers as "The Worlds toughest Ultra Distance Triathlon"

Consisting of a 3.8km swim in Lake Windermere, cycling the full 181km Fred Whitton cycle route, the toughest sportive going and running 42.2km up Great Langdale, Esk Hause, Great End and Scafell Pike - OMG!

Chris had previously done the X half in 2016 and had decided to complete his medal collection by entering and completing the full in 2017.

Accompanied by his good friend Tony Byrne, Chris got to the swim start ready for the 04:30 off on what was to be the hottest weekend of 2017 so far.

Chris came in with a time of 20h 03m 52s with mate Tony just slightly ahead with 20h 02m 42s. Now i know for a fact that there are lots of stories to tell from Chris's adventure and most exciting ones will be around the cut off times. Im sure Chris would love to share these with you so why not give him a call or buy him a pint and a packet of Doritos to congratulate him next time you see him.

A very very well done to Chris (and Tony) proud of you.
