1 Day, 5 Hours, 2 Races
Our biggest Challenge yet is now less than a week away! It will push Ben like never before and is titled “1:5:2”. 1:5:2 is all about pushing the body to the max, involving endurance, peck recovery times and core strength.
On the 22nd of September Ben will be completing in the SOS.MK. 1 mile (1609meters) open water race. He will then race 5 hours later in the Box End Park 800meters open water race at 1pm! Both of these races are competitive with prizes for the winners. Ben will then be joining a Master class by Mr Davenport the 2012 Gold medallist and 2 time commonwealth champion.
This is a huge test with 2400meters of open water competitive swimming in heavily dropping temperatures. The massive challenge is as always, being done in the name of charity to raise money and awareness for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research who are dedicated to beating blood cancers!
