52x52 Challenge

Follow the unique journey of Starr Trust Founder & Chairman Rob Starr, whilst he takes on an extreme year long challenge - an Olympic Distance Triathlon every week for 52 weeks in 2022!

Our Target

£4,761 raised of £100,000 goal

The Cause

One of the inspirational young people we support is Nathan, who’s dream is to get to the next Paralympics. Rob’s unique ‘52 Triathlons in 52 Weeks’ challenge came about because Nathan needs to raise around £20,000, to enable him to reach the next Paralympics as a wheelchair tennis player. He is a remarkable young man who has Cerebral Palsy and who until 18 months ago, was a successful wheelchair racer who the Starr Trust was supporting. During a world championship race, Nathan suffered an accident that meant he could no longer race. So rather than give up he switched to wheelchair tennis and is now on the cusp of being chosen for the next Paralympics.

That was hard. 7.30 AM start for the swim, it was dark, cold and new years day – silly time and day to start this challenge.
