ABOUT THE CHALLENGE
Extreme adventurer Sean Conway has taken on the greatest challenge of his life – a self-supported 4000+ mile, continuous Ultra Triathlon which circumnavigated the entire coast of mainland Britain. Discovery Channel has followed Sean’s incredible and dangerous journey as he cycled, ran and swam around Britain completely self-supported, carrying all his own kit, and using materials including a bamboo bike and self-made raft.
THE CYCLE - COMPLETE!
The British Ultra Triathlon has already seen Sean push his body to the limit as he has completed his 3,350 mile cycle from Lulworth Cove to Scarborough via the beautiful yet physically unforgiving Welsh and Scottish coastlines. His Bamboo bike has seen better days but it's survived the long journey to Scarborough! Now it's time for a little run...
THE RUN - COMPLETE!
Once he reaches Scarborough, Sean will change discipline for the first time, swapping his bike for running shoes. From this point, he will run more than 1.5 million steps down the east coast of England until he gets to Brighton where he will start the final leg.
THE SWIM - COMPLETE!
Sean has completed his swim, which consisted of: over 120 miles, that's over 390,000 strokes across two intensive weeks with only a self-made raft to sustain him. He has faced, changing tides, busy boat lanes and changeable weather along the swim but he has made it home safe to Lulworth Cove.
