Having now competed several years in triathlon including local sprint , standard, half and full IM , I really enjoyed the Celtman format and finishing the race the logistics do add a certain level of challange as you need to ensure your support crew and drivers are fit and healthy too otherwise this race is impossible :) i cannot thank my team enough! and all the volunteers who were also fab :) another one off the tri220 hardest swim list too!


Nice work Andy!


It was epic. No other word comes close whilst even epic doesnt do it justice
