New Challenge for MD of Needham Insurance

Neal Lowe our MD, is taking on his biggest challenge yet.  In June 2014 he is taking on the mighty IRONMAN 70 3, held in Exmoor National Park, one of the most picturesque areas of England, Wimbleall Lake has been host to IRONMAN 70 3 UK since 2006.  He is raising money for (RTCW) Round Table Children’s Wish.

The reputation of the event has been set by its rural location and the challenges of the bike course.
Two-time IRONMAN World Champion, Chris McCormack, won IRONMAN 70.3 UK in its first year and dubbed it the toughest 70.3 course at that time. With many athletes choosing to camp on site, it has a unique atmosphere.

The swim course is one lap, clockwise, starting 20m from the shore. The IRONMAN 70.3 UK Exmoor bike course is a tough two lap course right in the heart of Exmoor National Park. The course leaves Wimbleball lake and follows an anti clockwise loop through hilly terrain in a picturesque part of Somerset. The run at Wimbleball Lake is a three loop course on a mix of terrain including tarmac, hard pack trail and grass. The course remains firm underfoot even during prolonged bad weather. There is one short sharp climb in the course which is tackled three times.
There are 40 qualifying slots to the IRONMAN World Championship 70.3.
