A LONG standing supporter of a hospice is hoping to smash a world record.

Steve Roberts will be attempting a 24-hour Duathlon on Friday, October 25 to raise funds for St Kentigern hospice in St Asaph.

Steve has completed a number of challenges in the past including two Ironman events, multiple marathons, cycling events, various triathlons and the national three peaks to name but a few.

The twist for the outdoor lover is that this challenge will be static on a treadmill and bike. Steve will continuously be on the move and will be attempting to set a new world record for the longest Duathlon in 24 hours.

Steve said “The main aim of this tremendous challenge is raise funds and awareness for St Kentigern. I am very keen to go the extra miles to make a difference for the hospice in my very own way. As much as this is a motivation in itself will really push me and hopefully will capture the public’s imagination."

The challenge will take place at the Springfield Hotel, Pentre Halkyn from 9am on the Friday, October 25 until 9am on Saturday.

Laura Parry, fundraising manager at St Kentigern Hospice, said: "It will be tough, and we are very grateful of his heart warming and courageous effort to aid the hospice, we are all behind him."
