I did a NSPCC fundraiser with my daughter last year that sounds similar to what you're trying to achieve. Google "Messathon" for some ideas. Climbing over hay bales, under cargo nets, big ...

Excellent advice Stenard, thanks. It was chosen because of the bike leg particularly - I'm alright on a bike (no where the distance yet but that will come) but I'm rubbish at hills. Will try to get ...

I know, it's early, but I'm all signed up to this as my first half ironman and am hoping, by starting this thread, that I can keep myself focused over the next 10 months...
