World Record Holder, Chris Leek is the Fastest Man (Non Wetsuit) to complete the Enduroman Arch 2 Arc challenge. Only 44 athletes have ever achieved this challenge and of those only five have done it without a wetsuit. Chris Leek holds the fastest time in this category. Chris’s WHY is very personal to him and it is what kept him focused throughout every moment of this gruelling triathlon.
Chris shares why he chose this unparalleled challenge and takes us on his very emotional journey which involved running 87 miles from Marble Arch, London to Dover, swimming 21 miles across the English Channel and cycling 181 miles to the Arc de Triomphe in an incredible world record total time of 69 hours and 29 minutes.
“Exercise is one of the biggest enablers for a healthy mind. It’s proven to moderate depression, reduce anxiety, break down stress cycles and sharpen your mental ability. Overall, it’s a powerful energiser. I urge you all to get active, be that a daily walk or a marathon, set yourself a goal and go out there and go and achieve it.”
ABOUT CHRIS LEEK
An amateur athlete with no professional training, Chris attempted the Enduroman Arch with just eight months’ training. A challenge that usually takes three years to prepare for. Chris was inspired to take on this challenge for his father Dennis, who has both Parkinson’s and Lewy Body Dementia and is cared for full-time by Chris’s mother Linda. He is aiming to raise awareness and £1 million in sponsorship for three charities very close to his family’s heart; Parkinson’s UK, Lewy Body Society and Orpington’s Saxon Day Centre.
