Father and son estate agents, Sean and Tyler Newman, successfully completed the Frankfurt Ironman to raise money for the Fine & Country Foundation, a charity set up to help the homeless.
The Ironman comprises a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a gruelling 26-mile run with a time limit of 15 hours.
Tyler, 19, said, “It has taken months on training to get the required level of fitness and I am pleased my finishing time of 13 hours and 27 minutes.”
They raised £1,580 which will go to a Rugby homeless charity, Hope4. The charity aims to relieve poverty among homeless and badly-housed people and works to prevent homelessness. They run a day centre, a food bank, run a winter shelter during the harshest months, and working with local agencies.
Sean said, “It was an amazing feeling when we crossed the finish line, and it felt even better knowing we have raised money for this great cause.”
Tyler works for Fine & Country in Coventry and Sean works for Fine & Country in Rugby. They have both supported the Fine & Country Foundation by taking part in fundraising events including sleeping rough, climbing Kilimanjaro and driving a three -wheel rickshaw 3000 miles across India.
