That's right, 384 miles in 7 days, along the Leeds-Liverpool canal using only our legs, two cycles and a Kayak.
We (Jim Coupland and Steve Browitt) are two cardiac physiologists who work in cardiology, Leeds General Infirmary (LGI). We want to raise funds and awareness for charities we care a great deal about - Take Heart and The LTHT Children’s Heart Surgery Fund. What better way to do it than cycle 128 miles in a day, then Kayak 128 miles in 3 days, then run 128 miles... in 3 days...The ultimate 'triathlon'.
Please, Please, Please….
We are pushing ourselves to the limit, and have been in training for over 6 months. If you are inspired, or in any way remotely impressed by our challenge, please feel free to donate; every penny counts. All proceeds go toward our chosen charities, helping those who have been affected by all forms of heart disease or complication.
