Chester sales consultant sets his sights on Ironman Estonia
A Chester man will travel to Estonia next month to compete in a 3.8km swim, 180km bike ride and 42.2km run.
Greg Campbell, 27, a senior sales consultant at Redrow NW, who are sponsoring his endeavour, will take part in Ironman on August 6 to raise money for Claire House Children’s Hospice.
“This is my first Iron Man event. After stopping playing competitive football I needed a new challenge,” said Greg, who lives in Chester.
“Training is tiring and takes up a lot of my free time. I am trying to hit around 14 hours per week; cycling around eight hours a week, running around four hours and swimming for two hours.
“Unfortunately, I ruptured my ear drum on holiday, which has meant I am unable to train in the pool or lake until a couple of weeks before the event.”
Greg has worked for us for the past four years, joining the housebuilder’s graduate programme straight from university. He is now a senior sales consultant based at our Kings Moat Garden Village development, in Chester.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to Redrow for their support and for paying my race entry,” said Greg.
“Triathlons can be a very expensive sport and, in total, with equipment, training, entry fees, flights, accommodation, I will have spent well into the thousands, so I cannot thank Redrow enough for helping me with my race entry fee.
“It is a great company, and an honour to work for and represent them.”
Sarah Weaver, marketing manager at Redrow NW, said:“We are very proud that Greg has decided to support our divisional charity of the year Claire House and we wish him the very best for this mammoth challenge.
“Greg is very dedicated in the workplace so I know he will be putting his all into training.”
