Just imagine swimming 14.4 miles, cycling 678 miles and running 157.2 miles. Geraint Williams did just that to raise money for the Royal Glamorgan Hospital in South Wales.

This challenge was inspired after his grandfarther passed away from Covid-19. Geraint recieved nation wide support for his challenge as well as recognition from ITV.

Geraint is also the founder of Tri-Zone Fitness. We discuss Geraint’s mental resiliance, training methodology and equipment preferences.
