Iron man’s latest challenge

Posted on September 19 2009 at 3:10:56

Barnt Green Iron Man Nick Horton enjoyed another challenge last month when he took a team of village men to the prestigious Monaco Half Iron Man.

The team included some experienced triathletes, along with some nervous first-timers, for the one-mile open water swim, followed by a 60-mile bike ride and 13-mile run in scorching heat.

All the hard work and training – including the spin sessions in Nick’s garage – paid off with all completing the event, albeit not quite as quickly as Nick’s time of 5 hours and 2 minutes.
