Athlete of the week and High Fives long time supporter Matt Masson completed The UK’s first event for everybody, Para Tri!
Matt normally runs the 5K in an hour, except he cant run, so he had to walk. He knocked 15 minutes off his personal best time and did it in 45! Matt and the other two members of his team (cycle and swim) came in 14th place and crossed the finish line together. High Five Matt!
What is Para Tri?
Team up with disabled and non-disabled friends and family! There are seven races, each offering a very different challenge. So whether you count a 5k run as a rest day, or your speciality ‘sport’ is playing Xbox, there’s one for you. And if you thrive on team spirit, you can invite friends, family and colleagues to face the challenge with you as part of a relay team. Because Para Tri isn’t (just) about finishing first. It’s about making that giant leap from spectator to participator
