‘Ride for Nathan’ on Zwift: Wednesday September 29

Chief Correspondent

The whole triathlon community was shocked recently with the news that Welsh triathlete Nathan Ford, had suffered life-changing injuries following an accident while competing in the British Middle Distance Triathlon Championship.

Following that terrible news, a fundraising page was set up to help support Nathan and his family with what will be a long, difficult and expensive treatment & rehabilitation process. At the time of writing, that currently sits at £99,000. We need to push that into six figures.

On Wednesday night (September 29) at 7:15pm UK time, a group ride on Zwift has been set up, welcoming all ages, abilities and experience to unite on Zwift and ‘Ride for Nathan‘.

The ride will be led by Nathan’s NFT team-mate and coach Mark Rabaiotti. You can click here to join the ride.

No TRI247 Workout Series this week

NOTE – This week the regular TRI247 Group Workout Series session on Zwift has been cancelled, in order to support the Ride for Nathan, which will be held at almost the same time as our regular time slot.

We would like to encourage all of our riders, past and present, from the UK and overseas, to help show their triathlon community support by joining the Ride for Nathan on Zwift. And if you can, please do make a donation.

We will return next Wednesday with our regular workout session.

For this week though, please, Ride for Nathan.

“Nathan is well known and loved by so many, and we all know how strong and independent he is, but this isn’t a race he can win alone.”

Thank you.
