Roland Sheehan, Client Relationship Director at TFS Healthcare, took part in the Hever Castle Triathlon on 23 September 2018 in support of Macmillan Cancer Support. He managed to complete the UK’s second biggest triathlon in 7 hours and 40 minutes.
The races will again commence with an open-water swim in the spectacular 38 acre Hever Castle Lake and River Eden, transitioning into the undulating cycle that takes athletes around a circuit through the High Weald of Kent, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and up to the stunning Ashdown forest for the longer distance races. The largely off-road run circumnavigates the estate as well as taking runners through land owned by the Bellhurst Nature Conservation Trust (the majority of this section is not on public rights of way), then returning to the award-winning castle grounds before athletes make the dash to the tree-lined finishing chute beside the lake.
Macmillan Cancer Support provides help, support and advice to everyone affected by cancer, their families and friends. Macmillan nurses are visiting people in their own homes, hospitals or hospices to provide care and emotional support to patients and their families. Roland is raising money for more home nurses visiting people in need because they really make a difference. Just in a day he will be covering 70 miles, trying to raise money for 70 Macmillan nurse visits.
