RORY Pulman, a student at the Boat Building Academy in Lyme Regis, is raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity by competing in the Tri-Hard’s Challenge.
On the April 14, Rory and 19 other athletes will be riding, rowing and running over a hundred miles from Chelsea in London to Ventnor on the Isle of Wight.
The epic challenge will start at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Chelsea with a 77-mile cycle to Northney Marina on Hayling Island, where athletes will then have to row 13 miles across the Solent to Bembridge.
The adventure will finish with a 10-mile trail run to the beach at Ventnor for a well-earned celebratory dip.
All monies raised will go to the two charities. The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity supports the world-leading cancer centre, providing the very best care and developing life-saving treatments used all around the world, and Macmillan Cancer Support improves the lives of those living with cancer and supporting everyone who is affected by it.
Rory said: “Having lost my father to cancer, supporting charities like these means so much to me.”
