TRIATHLON: Jez is an Ironman

TRIATHLETE Jez Page achieved the accolade of Ironman when he completed the Nottingham Outlaw event at Holme Pierrepont on Sunday.

A member of Grantham Athletic Club, Jez completed the 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile cycle and 26.2-mile run in a total time of 12hr 20min 21sec, with split times of 1.22.41, 5.46.31 and 5.00.25.

Jez’s feat was all the more remarkable as he is unable to run. Surgery to an injured knee has seen little improvement and Jez had to power walk the marathon leg of the Ironman triathlon.
