Congratulations to Mr Bailey who recently competed in Ironman Wales…

Mr Bailey, our very own Ironman and Head of PE, competed in Ironman Wales in Tenby last month.

The competition started very early one Sunday morning in September with a 2.4 mile swim! This was then followed by a mighty 112 mile bike ride and then a full marathon – a 26 mile run!

  

Mr Bailey finished the race in 11 hours, 45 minutes and 56 seconds (swim 1:04:58, bike 6:17:00, run 4:06:49) and came 35th in his age group and 198th overall, which out of 1,675 competitors is a great achievement.

    

Well done Mr Bailey! What a great accomplishment! If you would like to find out more about Ironman Wales then click on the link below:
