AN INTREPID Llangollen man has raised over £300 for the Wales Air Ambulance by taking part in yesterday’s Chirk Triathlon.
Mike Edwards finished the event in a respectable time of 1:44.09 and was second in his age group category.
The gruelling challenge was a family affair for him as his son 43-year-old son Christian and eldest daughter Claire, 30, also took part.
Christian finished in 1:22:39 and Claire in 1:34:00.
Wales Air Ambulance is a cause close to Mike’s heart.
Following a heart attack five years ago he regained his fitness and took up the triathlon event.
“I am a keen supporter of the air ambulance, being well aware of the value of a speedy response in my sport,” he said.
Mike is also a long-term cyclist, regularly hitting the mountain bike trails at Coed Llandegla and pounding the roads in the Wrexham and Llangollen areas.
