The Teckentrup Flyer Is At It Again!

27th March 2012

The industry is getting used to Jim Rodgers exploits on two wheels – John O'Groats to Lands End in 2010, La Marmotte in 2012 – what next? Jim's now adding a couple of disciplines and will be competing in the Liverpool Triathlon event on July the 1st - Swim 1.5k, bike 40k and run 10k as a warm up to the Bolton Iron Man on July the 22nd. If you think the warm up seems like enough, the Bolton event is a 2.5-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride finished off with a full marathon to be completed in less than 17 hours!

As with Jim’s previous adventures every penny raised goes to support Alder Hey Hospital and the astonishing work they do with sick children. Emily Atkins was the inspiration for Jim’s first ride and it is with great delight we can report that, with help from Alder Hey, Emily is now back at home and doing well. To follow Jim visit The Teckentrup Facebook Page for his usual pithy account of the lead up to, and the event itself – you'll find a link to add your sponsorship.

The picture is not of Jim in his younger years but of his son Matthew (the likeness is unmistakable!) - T1 Wirral 9-10 year old triathlon winner on February 6th this year. Jim has a lot to live up to with a triathlon star already in the family!
