STOP PRESS: On Saturday Don Hutchinson completed the World Ironman Championships course in Kona, Hawaii. He swam, cycled and ran 226 kms in under 17 hours – an amazing effort for anyone, simply extraordinary for a 72 year old.
Please make a donation – I want to support Don! – to join in my admiration for this remarkable athlete.
This is what we said before the race:
We are thrilled at Power2inspire that Don Hutchinson has agreed to fundraise for us by competing in an epic Ironman contest. In his own words:
“I’m Don Hutchinson and I’ve enjoyed the sport of triathlon for over 30 years. The highlight of my triathlon career will be competing in the Ironman World Championships (3.8km sea swim, 180 km bike ride and 42km marathon run) in Kona, Hawaii in October 2017, when I will be 72 years old. I hope to inspire others, young and old, able-bodied or disabled to enjoy and benefit from sport. During the next 12 months I have chosen to raise funds for John’s charity, Power2inspire.
Following on from the success of John’s Road2Rio, I am calling my challenge Don’s Highway2Hawaii.

Such an inspiration! Don has shared his love of triathlon for all those 30 years, teaching 1,000s of Cambridgeshire youngsters about the joys of swimming, cycling and running. We salute him! You can too by sponsoring him – just click here I want to support Don!
