Following his success in the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2017 Andy Piller took on the Ironman Vichy challenge on August 27th. Andy wants to raise a total of £40,000 before his 40th birthday in September 2020 and hopes that sponsorship for this event will help him on his way.
Ironman athletes swam in the beautiful Lake Allier , using the rowing race infrastructure to guide themselves through the course. The bike course in the country headed through the regions of Allier and Puy-de-dome, with exceptional views of the Chaine des Volcans d’Auvergne. The day ended with a running course on the shores of Lac d’Allier and through historical Vichy, where hundreds of spectators lined the course to cheer the athletes to the finish.
Andy finished the challenge in 13 hours and 14 minutes – a fantastic achievement! He has raised £2044.47 for this event which brings his total to £30,782.00.
