Cullimore Dutton Legal Secretary Rhodri Roberts has smashed the Chester Triple.
After running the MBNA Chester 10K in March and the Essar Chester Half Marathon in May, Rhodri finished Sunday’s MBNA Chester Marathon in a personal best time of 4 hours 49 minutes.
Because he completed all three events in one season, he was also awarded the Chester Triple – and was one of just 620 people to do so.
Rhodri, 49, from Holywell, who ran at the weekend to raise money for Cancer Research UK, has raised thousands for charity since he started running and climbing mountains around the world.
To date he has scaled Mount Kilimanjaro, Mont Blanc and Mount Elbrus as well as completing the National Three Peaks Challenge and the Six Peaks Challenge.
Rhodri said: “Being presented with the Chester Triple was a wonderful experience. I was exhausted, euphoric, in pain but also felt amazing. At one stage of the race I feared I might have to give up but kept going and was delighted to hit a personal best time.
“The support from the public and the event crew along the course was really motivating. I can’t thank them all enough because they made a huge difference to us all.
“It also feels great to complete a challenge that has been ongoing throughout the year and to have raised some money for charity in the process.”
Andrew Wright, Managing Director of Cullimore Dutton, which prides itself on changing people’s lives with its legal and financial services and contribution to the local community, said: “We can’t wait to hear what Rhodri’s next challenge is going to be. He is an inspiration.”
