Cindercone Technical Consultant, Martin Cloudsdale returned from his Ironman Triathlon in Barcelona in a jubilant mood following his success in completing the incredible task.

Martin faced 2 meter waves in the swimming and shocking headwinds in the cycling, down to some unseasonal weather in the normally warm Spanish city.

The tournament followed weeks of training in the build up including swimming in the North Sea and daily runs.

Running in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, Martin has already raised nearly £700 and its not too late to add to that total, you can still sponsor him here.

Well done Martin, your team mates are proud of your great achievement.
