These are the unicorns in the sport of triathlon. Some say that they would never do the races that these athletes have done. Not everyone wants to do the hardest of the hard, the brutal distances and the unforgiving terrain of extreme triathlons. These races are beyond normal and deserve their own page for this reason. If you want to learn and hear what it’s like to do the hardest of the hard, you’ve reached your destination. Otherwise like most people, just turn away now.
Julian Summers, a wonderful friend from South Africa tackled a back to back IRONMAN© in the same weekend. Sadly, he DNF’d the second full due to…well, listen and see.. but he attempted it and he enjoyed it. His humbleness and graciousness to do this and how he viewed it is amazing and something we should all strive for.
