Well Done Team Laws: 7hrs 31 mins!
In May we sent down an Advanced Elements Lagoon for Ben Laws to use for his plan to complete a half ironman race at Emberton Country Park on 4th July. The race is now finished and a huge "Well Done" to Ben, who completed the half ironman race.
Ben swam the 1.2 miles followed by a 56 mile bike and finally a 13.1 mile run - towing, pulling and pushing his son Ewan, who has cerebral palsy all the way. A truly heroic effort!
Ben said that he was amazed at how many people asked about the (Lagoon) kayak. "People were looking at it - we left it inflated after I got out of the water - people were sitting it in - touching it, lifting it up- it caused quite a stir. The main talking points were:
1) How light and easily inflated it was.
2) How stable on the water it was.
3) Where could I get one and how much!!!
So it went very well. We have been asked a million times when the next race was - we raised over £4000 for charity which is excellent but the attention we got was amazing."
See the Team Laws website & it would be great if you can help support Ben with fundraising for his 3 chosen charities. The image shows Ewan's big sister (Olivia) during a training session.
Looking for somewhere to try an Advanced Elements Convertible (tandem) kayak?
For the second time our Advanced Elements kayaks (Sports Model) have travelled right across Australia from Perth in Western Australia to East Gippsland in the far East of Victoria, the Indian Ocean to the Pacific.
