Trevor Keith – competing in Ironman Sunday 23 June 2019
Momentum Support’s own Trevor Keith – site manager at Bombardier Belfast – is competing in the IRONMAN CORK on the 23rd June 2019.
The Ironman is the hardest one-day endurance race in the world, covering a staggering 140 miles from start to finish. Athletes begin with a 2.4-mile swim – followed by an 11-mile bike race, topped off with a regular marathon run of 26.2 miles.
For the Cork Ironman, athletes will start with a 2.4-mile, 2-lap swim, starting from Claycastle beach in Youghal Bay. They’ll then take to the scenic roads of County Cork for two laps of a 112-mile course that includes Middleton, home to the Jameson Distillery, and breathtaking views over Youghal Bay, Ballycotton Island and Cork Harbour. The final marathon takes racers back to Youghal where they’ll cross the finish line in Market Square.
“It has been a real physical challenge for me training 6 days a week for the last 7 months,” Trevor says. “My personal target is to complete the race in and around 13 or 14 hours in all 3 disciplines.”
Trevor is running in support of PIPS, a Belfast Registered charity (number 104726) established in 2003 following the suicides of 14 young people under the age of 18 in an area of North Belfast. As a community-based organisation, they offer a care team service and family support for those bereaved by suicide.
