Barcelona Ironman – 21st May 2017 fundraising for C4C

Stuart Chamberlain is ex serving member of the Rifles, having reached the rank of WO2, he served for 23 years initially with 2 RGJ which later became 1 RGJ and then 2 Rifles. Stuart served with 1 RGJ/2 Rifles in Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Sierra Leone, Iraq (2 tours) Afghanistan (3 tours as a C/SJT, CSM and finally the RQ) and Kosovo.  He then moved to 5 Rifles for 5 years and his final year was spent with 7 Rifles in Reading.  

Stuart has decided to take part in the Barcelona Ironman Competition and has nominated Care for Casualties as one of his chosen charities   Since leaving the Regiment Stuart has taken up Triathlons however he has now decided to challenge himself even more and has moved up to endurance triathlons with the Barcelona Ironman being his first. Whilst on this journey he would like to raise as much money as possible for 2 charities one being Care for Casualties and the other is Acorns children’s hospice.   The event itself consists of a 1.9km sea swim, a 90km bike course and a half marathon to finish where Stuart will be hoping to come in under 5 hours and 40 mins for the whole course.
