220 to do garden triathlon in aid of NHS

With the triathlon calendar currently empty, why not bring the triathlon to you? Well, that’s what 220 Triathlon’s features editor Matt Baird will be doing today, for he’s undertaking a middle-distance triathlon in his back garden in aid of the NHS.


Matt will start his recreation of the Outlaw Half/Ironman 70.3 Staffs/Slateman Legend, etc, at 1.30pm and plans to spend 50minutes swimming in his 2.6 metre long, waist-height paddling pool (luckily he’s only 5ft 6in, at a push).
