Sean Conway’s Ultra Triathlon

Extreme athlete beats British coast

An extreme adventurer has completed a 4,000-mile ultra-triathlon around the coastline of Britain. Sean Conway used a bamboo bike and carried all his gear on the challenge, which started and finished at Lulworth, Dorset. The 34-year-old, from Cheltenham, took 85 days to cycle, run and swim in stages around the coast.

In 2013, Sean Conway swam 900 miles from Land’s End in Great Britain to John o’Groats in Scotland spending 90 days in the water and raising money for the charity “War Child.”

Now he’s setting his sights on an Ultra Triathlon consisting of a 3,350 mile ride along the Welsh and Scottish coastlines, a 400 mile run down the east coast of England, and culminating with a 100 mile swim from Brighton to Lulworth Cove.

Oh, and did I mention he’ll be riding a bamboo bicycle and using a self-made raft for support during the swim?
