My story

[vmgvideo class="ql-video" allowfullscreen="true" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Zr-0NwzVlT0?showinfo=0&rel=0&iv_load_policy=3" frameborder="0"][/vmgvideo][p][br][/p][p]My name is Chris Thrall. I’m an author, adventurer and former Royal Marines Commando (link to my bio below). Last year I ran an ultramarathon a day from John O’Groats to Land’s End. This year, on September 8th 2019, I will complete a quadruple ironman distance triathlon. [/p][p]That’s a 9.6-mile swim, a 450-mile cycle and a 104-mile run – in seven days[/p][p]I will be highlighting the alarming rate of veterans suicide and raising vital funds for Rock 2 Recovery, a veterans’ mental health charity.[/p][p]A quadruple ironman distance triathlon will present quite a challenge. I’m not a natural swimmer. The furthest I’ve ever cycled is fifty miles. I’ve not run more than four miles in training as I’m in constant chronic pain from degenerative spine damage and a host of other injuries. But no matter what hardship I endure, it will never be as much as some of our veterans are going through. [/p][p]So, how can you help?[/p][p]· You can cheer me on at Plymouth’s lido pool on Sunday 8th September from 9am onwards or cycle around Yelverton Aerodrome and Burrator reservoir with me on Monday through to Thursday[/p][p] [/p][p]· You can a make small donation or share a social media post[/p][p] [/p][p]· You can learn about the challenges some of us veterans face by reading my memoirs[/p][p] [/p][p]· You can support my charity and mental health work via the Patreon platform for only £2 per month. For that you get an invite to my annual talk and after party, a free life-coaching video every month and electronic copies of my books[/p][p] [/p][p]I’ll post all the relevant links below.[/p][p]And I’ll see you at the finish line – thank you.[/p][p]Donate at: [url=https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/QuadIronman]https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/QuadIronman[/url][/p][p]Facebook: [url=https://facebook.com/groups/QuadIronman]https://facebook.com/groups/QuadIronman[/url] [/p][p]Facebook: [url=https://facebook.com/ChrisThrall]https://facebook.com/ChrisThrall[/url][/p][p]Twitter: [url=https://twitter.com/ChrisThrall]https://twitter.com/ChrisThrall[/url] [/p][p]Instagram: [url=https://instagram.com/Chris.Thrall]https://instagram.com/Chris.Thrall[/url][/p][p]YouTube: [url=https://youtube.com/ChrisThrall]https://youtube.com/ChrisThrall[/url][/p][p]Memoirs: [url=https://amazon.co.uk/Chris-Thrall/e/B004HC7TOW]https://amazon.co.uk/Chris-Thrall/e/B004HC7TOW[/url][/p][p]Inspirational Speaking: [url=https://greatbritishspeakers.co.uk/speakers/chris-thrall/]https://greatbritishspeakers.co.uk/speakers/chris-thrall/[/url][/p][p]Chris Thrall’s bio and photos: [url=https://christhrall.com]https://christhrall.com[/url][/p][p]Support my work on Patreon for only £2 per month: [url=https://patreon.com/ChrisThrall]https://patreon.com/ChrisThrall[/url][/p]
