Mike Edwards of Llangollen is competing in the Chirk triathlon on April 17, raising funds for Wales Air Ambulance.
The event starts and finishes at Chirk Leisure Centre and Mike is training at the leisure centre.
Mike, a long-term cyclist, regularly hits the mountain bike trails at Coed Llandegla and pounds the roads in the Wrexham and Llangollen areas.
Following a heart attack five years ago Mike regained his fitness and took up the triathlon event.
He is a keen supporter of the air ambulance, being well aware of the value of a speedy response in his sport.
