Jason Roberts is not your normal triathlete. Sure he plans to swim 2.4 miles, cycle 112 miles and run 26.2 miles in one day. Ironman distance. All good so far. The amazing bit about about Jason’s plan is he is going to do it EVERY day, for seven days.
The Elivar Featured Athlete will be starting at Land’s End on the 17th of August, and plans to complete his epic challenge 7 days later in John O’Groats – certainly the most unusual way to do LEJOG!
Preparations are going well despite a minor leg niggle after a 100k duathlon three weeks ago. A rest week and a return to action at the Ashington Sprint over the May Bank Holiday sees the start of a period of increasing training volumes through May, June and July.
Jason plans to do 3 half-Irons in May and 2 Irons back-to-back in early June. Sleep deprivation training is also on the cards so Jason can experience running, swimming and cycling when his body really would like to just stop and go to bed!
There is still plenty to do on the organisation side – accommodation is still to be finalised. If anyone spare Winnebago or motor home for a week Jason would love to hear from you!
Jason is looking for volunteers to travel some of the distance with him. You don’t need to do the full distance of any leg – cycle or run with Jason for as long or as little as you like. Jason would love some company! Sign up at the event facebook page for more details HERE

Did you know that Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN), the star ingredient in numerous anti-aging supplements, also moonlights in several foods you might already enjoy? It's true! NMN is a vital precursor to NAD+, a molecule crucial to many biological processes, like cell growth, DNA repair, and metabolism. But as we age, NAD+ levels take a hit, and bolstering them through NMN intake can be beneficial. Now the question arises, can we simply count on our daily meals for our NMN fix?
