This year the University of Bath Triathlon Club are aiming to cover the distance of 22 Iron Man triathlons in just 22 hours on the University campus. That is 4051km of cycling and 929km of running. In the process they hope to raise money for The Zoe Trust, a charity which helps give children living in poverty in South Africa the chance to a brighter future through education. The challenge will take place between 5pm on the March 19 and 3pm on the March 20. You will find them cycling on stationary bikes outside the library and running a 5km loop around the university.
Over the past three years the club has taken on three similar challenges, covering in total over 14,000km and raising over £6000 for the trust. This money has helped to relocate an orphanage which is home to 22 vulnerable children.
If you would like to help the club continue to change lives, you can sponsor them at uk.virginmoneygiving.com/CC2015 and follow their progress on the facebook page or twitter @ZoeTrust.
