A Stevenage dad is taking on the challenge of completing as many triathlons as he can over the two-day Blenheim Weekend Warrior Triathlon event this weekend.

Kieran Feetham, 37, will be doing a 750m swim, 20km bike ride and 5km run - repeatedly - to raise funds for an East and North Hertfordshire Hospitals’ Charity men’s health champion to help improve men’s health in the community.

The dad of two said: “I want to raise money so there is support for new dads as well as all the guys out there that have struggled with their physical and mental health during the lockdowns.

"It’s very brave for a guy to ask for help, but we have to have the support out there for them when they do.

“My dad was a European champion triathlete, but even he thinks I am mad to do this event.”
