Chris Whelpdale Completes His First Triathlon for RMF

Last weekend, Chris Whelpdale, RMF's Head of Media & Communication, took on the challenge of entering the Eastbourne Triathlon to raise money for RMF.

Due to the windy conditions, the swimming leg which was meant to be in the sea, was replaced with a 5k run, followed by a 40k bike ride up Beachy Head and a 10k run.

In his first-ever attempt at a triathlon, Chris finished a commendable 69th out of over 450 participants with a time of 2:24:00

Chris said, "Taking part in the Eastbourne Triathlon was an incredible experience, tough but very rewarding and I'm thrilled to have raised £750 for disability football at RMF. The support from everyone has been overwhelming, and hopefully I can inspire others to take up some challenges"

Everyone at RMF is incredibly proud of you, Chris, and you’ve given us the inspiration to set our own challenges!
