Craig the half Ironman
No challenge is too big for Craig Fisher. He has doggedly raised £12,000 for secondary breast cancer research by participating in a series of marathons, duathlons and triathlons.
“The main aim was to look for something that would seriously challenge me, not just a single event to focus on and train for, but a series of events which meant training for almost a whole calendar year,” he said.
Craig started with the Windsor duathlon in February, which meant running 10 kilometres, bicycling for 40 kilometres and running another five kilometres.
In May he completed the 70.3 Mallorca triathlon. He swam 1.9 kilometres, biked for 90 kilometres up a mountain and then ran 21 kilometres.
Craig’s other fundraising events include: completing the July 70.3 triathlon challenge in Milton Keynes (Cowman), a 100-mile bike ride through London and the Royal Parks half marathon in October.
