As a former serviceman and mental health speaker, he is highlighting the alarming rate of veterans suicide and raising vital funds for Rock 2 Recovery, a veterans’ mental health charity.

This is a promotional video he made to highlight the trip:

That’s a 9.6-mile swim, a 450-mile cycle and a 104-mile run – in seven days! Chris says:

A quadruple ironman distance triathlon will present quite a challenge. I’m not a natural swimmer. The furthest I’ve ever cycled is fifty miles. I’ve not run more than four miles in training as I’m in constant chronic pain from degenerative spine damage and a host of other injuries. But no matter what hardship I endure, it will never be as much as some of our veterans are going through.

It’s not the first time mental health speaker Chris has taken on such a challenge to raise awareness of mental health issues, having last year run an ultramarathon a day from John O’Groats to Land’s End. The incredible feat involved covering 37 ultra marathons in 37 days!

Here is a report covering the epic feat on BBC Spotlight:
