the challenge

IRONMAN European Championship in Hamburg. 

Expected to take 12hrs to complete and consisting of a 3.8km lake swim, a 180km bike ride and finishing with a marathon (42.2km) the IRONMAN triathlons are one of the most awesome test of resilience. 

the Team

Two IRONMAN4Sophie teams took on this incredible challenge to

fundraise for The Sophie Clarke Foundation and our collaboration with Wilfrid's House.

TEAM 2022

Swapping golf clubs for swimming caps and surf boards for road bikes, Dan, Lottie, Boxy and Rich were the first to tackle the IRONMAN for The Sophie Clarke Foundation in June 2022. The whole team beat their predicted completion times and raised over £20,000 with the help and generosity of the McAuliffe family who matched every pound donated up to £10,000.

TEAM 2023

Geordie and Max were next to take on the IRONMAN European Championship on 4 June 2023. Racing around Singapore prepared them well, seeing them complete the IRONMAN in unbelievable time! Their hardwork paid off and they successfully overtook their fundraising target of £5,000.
