Fifteen triathletes from RAF Honington took part in the Rock Hard Triathlon, an endurance event spanning the length of the country.

Rock Hard Triathlon

The 2012 event coincided with the 70th anniversary of the formation of the RAF Regiment. 

The team cycled from Lands End to John O’Groats, swam the widest point of each of the three largest lakes (Lake Bala, Lake Windermere and Loch Ness) and, climbed the three highest peaks (Mount Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis). 

Over the course of this arduous challenge the team raised over £6,000 for the RAF Benevolent Fund.

Well done and thank you!
