Rural Solutions are proud to announce that we are sponsoring endurance athlete, Sam Boatwright as he trains for and attempts a gruelling and intense triathlon including swimming the English Channel.

Sam is a dedicated athlete who has gained notoriety for his incredible feats, all for the sake of charity. He was first dubbed the ‘Epic Runner’ back in 2012, when he successfully ran 50 miles every day for 50 days.

As well has being an impressive athlete, Sam is also a full-time maths teacher at a school in Bradford, and is a real inspiration to his students, encouraging them to realise that “everyone is capable of achieving more than they ever realise”.

This year Sam will be attempting an ‘Epic Triathalon’ which will involve cycling Land’s End to John O’Groats, swimming the channel and then running from John O’Groats all the way back to Land’s End – alongside trying to break world record attempts while cycling and running. All this will be in aid of raising money for SSAFA; the armed forces charity. In his own words: “This one’s for anyone who’s ever felt out-faced, overwhelmed and on their own. Circumstances might limit us, but as always it’s the courage we have to keep facing our challenges that counts.”

We at Rural Solutions are truly honoured to be sponsoring such an inspiring individual as he puts himself through an intense challenge for the sake of not only challenging himself, but also to challenge the wider community to get involved and make a difference. We will be following his exploits in the run-up to and during the triathlon in July, and helping him to achieve his fundraising goals.

“Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Rural Solutions Ltd. My sixth and main sponsor for the Epic Triathlon.
