  • Did the Hike/Bike, MTB, Kayak, Swim in 2017

    A completely unforgettable experience in the stunning surroundings of Glacier National Park, made even better by the fact that I did the race with my 16 year old son! Great organisation meant you could really focus on the physical challenges and the camps were like a holiday at the end of every day. As a first time open water swimmer I was made to feel confident in advance of the stage and with plenty of support on the water I could really concentrate on just getting the swim done without worrying about anything (except my awful swimming). Great experience that I will certainly repeat.
