GR100 is the inaugural IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire which will take place on June 14 2015. This will consist of a 1.2-mile swim in Chasewater reservoir and a 56-mile bike course through the stunning countryside outside Lichfield, Burton-upon-Trent and across Cannock Chase area of outstanding natural beauty. The concluding 13.1 mile run will start and finish at the historic Shugborough country estate, the former ancestral home of Lord Lichfield, a renowned royal photographer and cousin of Queen Elizabeth II.
Commenting on the challenge Graham said “I’m raising money for the Gordon Ramsey Foundation, supporting a number of inspirational causes including Cancer Research UK the Scottish Spina Bifida Association, the Louis Dundas Centre for Children’s Palliative Care, Action against Hunger and Meningitis Now. My close family has been heavily effected by terminal illness. It can happen to any of us at anytime. With your support I know I can get through this challenge…1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike ride and 13.1-mile run, all in a set time on the same day!
Your donations will make a huge difference.”
