The Great Wight Attack 2011

Some might call them brave, ultra fit, Iron Men. That is without doubt what they are. Some also call them crazy... They must be that too. 

Martyn Kennaugh and Dave Savage set off today on the Great Wight Attack, a tough challenge of 7 miles swimming plus 65 miles running.

I was pleased to be there to see them off and wish them the best for finishing this herculean task. 

Please visit their website for more info and please donate to this very worthy cause.
