Extreme effort in Old Buckenham

Phin the Ironman
Phin Robinson of Fen Street was expecting to do his second ‘Ironman’ on Sunday 12 July. As expected it has been cancelled due to Covid-19. However he is now planning to do his own Ironman UK around the village (and other parts of Norfolk) on the same day.
If anyone wants to join him for the swim 2.4 miles (a bit or all of it) or one or all of the bike loops (total of 112 miles) or bit or all of the run loops (marathon distance of 26.22 miles) then he will be pleased to have the socially-distanced company.
He will be donating his prepaid entry fee to Parkinsone.’s UK and will set up a Just Giving page if anyone wants to donate anything. It will be a hard challenge as normally on these events there is lots of support/aid stations, etc. The run won’t be quick at all and more like a run/walk at the end of 13 hours of constant exercise.
It would be great to get local people involved to help Phin around the course. More details will appear on the Old Buckenham Facebook page nearer the date.
