Gareth Davies, a founding Director of ESS will be competing in the IRONMAN Wales race, one of the toughest races in the world!  The aim is to raise funds for the Mavis Nye Foundation to enable the grants to begin; which will provide financial grants to aid newly diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, short term expenses, along with grants for research laps to pursue the development of new drugs and supporting young Uni Students to become mesothelioma Doctors.

Event details


One of the toughest races in the world!

IRONMAN Wales begins on Tenby's North Beach, which provides one of the most spectacular swim locations on the race circuit. Despite challenging bike and run courses, athletes are treated to consistent and motivating inspiration from some of the most vocal and enthusiastic spectators in endurance sports.

An Ironman is the hardest one-day endurance race in the entire world, covering a staggering 140 miles from start to finish. Gareth will begin with a 2.4 mile open water swim….

With a quick transition, Gareth will jump onto his bike and get pedalling on the 112 mile cycle segment, and then finish the day (hopefully!) by progressing onto 'the run'. The name trivialises it a little, as 'the run' is actually a regulation length marathon – 26.2 miles of running after he’s already covered well over 100 miles.
