Like him or loathe him, you can’t query Gordon Ramsay’s appetite for triathlon. He may have been forced to pull out of Kona this year, but is now looking for 100 athletes to join his GR100 fundraising team at Ironman 70.3 Staffordshire next June.
Successful applicants will receive a guaranteed race spot, branded kit including a Huub wetsuit, as well as training days with top experts, meetings with triathlon legends and of course the opportunity to join Gordon on what is expected to be one of the flattest, fastest 70.3 triathlons in 2015.
Chef Ramsay says that he’s not looking for seasoned athletes, but rather “dedicated, passionate, driven people who want to take on a life changing challenge.” There is a catch though – successful applicants will have to stump up £1.5k to join the team, and raise another £2.5k for the Gordon Ramsay Foundation.
