Greg James five-day triathlon challenge

Braving winter temperatures and exhaustion Radio One DJ Greg James is halfway through his mammoth Sport Relief Gregathlon challenge and has raised well over £100,000 - go Greg!

Into Day 3 and halfway through his amazing Sport Relief Challenge of doing an Olympic length triathlon every day for five days (in freezing temperatures)  the BBC Radio One DJ Greg James is in Glasgow and feeling it after the swim... 

His endurance challenge kicked off in Cardiff on Monday before heading to Belfast on Tuesday. Tomorrow he is in Sheffield before finishing in Norwich and so far he has raised well over £100,000 for Sport Relief (you can donate here)

“British Triathlon would like to wish Greg James good luck in his triathlon challenge,” chief executive Jack Buckner, said. “Completing five triathlons in five cities, in five days, is really a huge challenge, not just because of the distances and logistics involved, but also the winter weather. We hope that his swimming, cycling and running exploits help raise a lot of money for Sport Relief.”

Here are some images from day 1-3 of his great challenge...

Money raised from the Gregathlon will be spent helping people living unimaginably tough lives, with half of the money raised used to make a difference right here in the UK. The other half is used to transform lives across the world’s poorest communities.
