助教計劃在10天內為慈善事業進行10次鐵人三項比賽

一名助教正準備在幾天內進行10次鐵人三項的史詩般的挑戰,為慈善事業籌集資金。

他正在為慈善機構Sisu Derbyshire籌集資金,該機構將與Alfreton鎮政府合作,舉辦活動以紀念辛普森先生的努力,並啟動Active8 Alfreton項目,鼓勵所有年齡和能力的人參加體育活動。

他們還將舉辦一些戶外活動,這些活動分為八個項目。跑步、走路、游泳、騎馬、踢球、投擲、擊球和舉重。

辛普森先生將與幾位家庭成員和朋友一起,在整個活動期間,他們將在現場的帳篷和大篷車裡支持和陪伴他。

他說,他希望能在15至16小時內完成每天的挑戰,但他承認,隨着他越來越累,這個目標可能會 "滑落"。

"他說:"實際上,你必須在第二天開始前的15分鐘內完成前一天的工作。

辛普森先生自去年8月以來一直在為這項活動進行訓練,據估計,自1月以來,他已經跑步、騎自行車和游泳了5500英里(8851公里),這是倫敦和墨西哥城之間的大致距離。

"我的主要目標是給它一個絕對最好的機會。我並不執着於獲勝,但我甚至不執着於必須完成這件事,我認為更重要的是盡我最大的努力,而我真正想要的是我在完成比賽後在終點處摔倒。


A teaching assistant is gearing up for an epic challenge of 10 Ironman triathlons in as many days to raise money for charity.

He is raising money for charity Sisu Derbyshire, who will be working with Alfreton Town Council, with the authority set to host events to mark Mr Simpson's efforts and launch the Active8 Alfreton Project to encourage people of all ages and abilities to take part in physical activity.

They will also be putting on a number of outdoor activities that come under the eight headings: Run, walk, swim, ride, kick, throw, hit and lift.

Mr Simpson will be joined by several family members and friends, who will be supporting and staying with him in tents and caravans on the site throughout the event.

He said he was hoping to complete each daily challenge by between 15 and 16 hours, but admitted that might "slip" as he became more tired.

"You've actually got until 15 minutes before the start of the next day to finish the preceding one," he said.

Mr Simpson has been training for the event since last August, and estimates that since January, he has run, cycled and swam 5,500 miles (8,851km) - the approximate distance between London and Mexico City.

"My main goal is to give it my absolute best shot. I'm not hung up on winning, but I'm not even hung up on having to complete this thing, I think it's more about doing my absolute best and what I really want is my absolute best to be falling over the line at the finish having completed it."
