Zest 4 Leisure is a leading supplier of timber garden products, the MD of its parent company, the P&A Group, Steve Morgan together with Landscaping and Timber Buildings Manager John Vaughan, completed the Velothon Cycle Wales and Ripon Triathlon earlier in the year.

On Sunday 9 August, they took part in the 70.3 Gdynia Polish Iron Man Challenge. To call themselves ironmen, the duo had to complete a 1.9km sea swim, 90km cycle ride and then a 21.1km run. 

After five and a half gruelling hours in extremely hot conditions, they collected their finisher's medals within 10 minutes of each other. 

Next on the agenda is their final challenge, the Iron Man Wales at Tenby  in September. Here Steve and John will face a 2.4 mile sea swim, 112 mile cycle ride and then a marathon of 26.2 miles.

All the money raised will go to the Alzheimer's Society whose aim is to improve the quality of life of those affected by dementia. As Steve says, ' There are so many people that live with this life-changing condition, we feel privileged to support such a worthy cause'.

If you want to join us in helping Steve and John collect as much money as possible for the Alzheimer's Society through their series of challenges, then go to their just giving page. Read more about the iron men challenge on the P&A website
