Mr Barker – our very own ‘Ironman!’

Mr Barker, our very own Deputy Head of the senior school at Bridgewater, has had plenty to celebrate last weekend after taking part in the ‘Ironman’ contest in Bolton. ‘The Ironman’ is an international event that began in Hawaii in 1978. The distances are based on three separate races that took place around the Islands. The Ironman UK race is held each year in Bolton and consists of a 2.4 mile open water swim in Pennington Flash, followed by a 112 mile bike ride – which includes climbing twice up the notorious Sheephouse Lane between Rivington and Belmont! – finally a full 26.2 mile marathon starting at the Macron stadium in Bolton …. and after several laps …. finishing in Bolton town centre.  There were over 2000 competitors this year – our Mr Barker competed with 41 other team-mates from his triathlon club ‘Tri-Rivington’ and completed the course in just over 15 hours. A deserving achievement after months of training and a great inspiration for our students; demonstrating stamina, commitment, perseverance and achievement. A huge ‘WELL DONE!….perhaps Mr Barker could introduce an ‘Ironman’ extra curricular club at lunchtime?? In the meantime, we hope you enjoy a bit of ‘R & R’ over the summer and manage to ease those aching muscles!
