2021: 41hrs 7 mins

New record

Danny's second completion, this time sensibly opting to be driven between lakes rather than cycling. During the swim, Danny taised money for Leeds North and West Foodbank in memory of a friend. 

This adventure was only possible with the help of many Eccles cakes and the incredible support team of Adelina, Mum & Dad, Ben, Clarkey, Dan, Col, Kim, Thommo & Huw.

Thanks to everyone for their support
