7 Ironmans in 7 Days

About Philip and Warren

Philip and Warren are taking part in 7 Ironmans in 7 Days which is raising funds for This Is EPIC Guernsey Mind

"Guernsey based endurance duo Philip Smith and Warren Mauger are taking their biggest endurance challenge to date this summer. They will be attempting 7 Ironman Distance Triathlons in 7 days as part of The FCG EPIC Week.

Starting on Monday 10 July, Philip and Warren’s challenge will consist of a 2.4 mile swim in Havelet Bay, a 112 mile bike ride which will see the duo cycle up and down the the west coast and to finish, a 26.2 mile marathon run which will cover four laps from Havelet to Vale Castle. They will then repeat this route every day for the next six days, totalling a massive 984.2 miles for the whole week.

The why behind the challenge is simple. The duo are raising money for This Is EPIC and Guernsey Mind. Every penny raised will go directly to the charities projects, which are:

This Is EPIC will use the money raised to implement a new project in the Democratic Republic of Congo. 10 new savings and loans groups will be started which will impact more than 2000 people as well as a positive impact on the wider communities.

The DRC has been chosen as there is a big problem with integrating women who have been the victims of sexual assault and this project will work with them to empower them to become financially independent and support their families and provide services for the community. Without this they would be ostracised by the community and left to fend for themselves, which would be almost impossible.

Guernsey Mind will use the funds raised to invest into a community project to provide support services for the mental health of adults with Autism and Asperger’s. Guernsey Mind will increase the hours of a person working for the charity already and train them specifically to provide support in this area.

They will also work with Autism Guernsey to make sure they provide the best possible service. Often people with these conditions get treated for either the communication difficulty or the mental health condition. However, there is a complex dynamic between the two, and the more support a person receives for their mental health the less they will need to access specialist services. The funds raised will enable Guernsey Mind to run the service for an initial 2 years as part of their Community in Mind project."
