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

£105,160 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.

Blooming hell that was hard. In one week I went from being strong and energised and enjoying the triathlon to tired, no energy and dreading it...

For some reason I was on it today, very different to the last few weeks. I think my lack of energy the last few weeks was due to doubling up too much, but now I’m back to just one Tri a week my energy levels have returned to normal Rob Starr levels...

So if my maths are accurate then 52-42 = 10. I know it’s a complicated sum, but I think I’ve got it right. That means after 42/52 Tri this morning I’ve only got 10 left...
