Land Studio supports record-breaking triathlete

An associate landscape architect at Land Studio swam with triathlete Sean Conway to support him in his challenge to complete 105 triathlons back-to-back across 105 consecutive days. 

Kate Richards accompanied Conway for a series of early morning swims throughout his world-record breaking challenge, as the 42-year-old Zimbabwean endurance adventurer completed Ironman distances of 2.4-mile swim followed by 112-mile bike ride and finished with a 26.22-mile run across the roads in North Wales and Cheshire – totalling 140.62 miles per day or 14,765.1 miles in total. 

Richards says: “I swam with Sean eight times throughout his challenge, which entailed getting in the pool with a small group of supporters at 5am and swimming as many lengths as we could manage for 75 minutes.” 

Being a keen open water swimmer, Richards has also swum the 5.25-mile length of Coniston Water in the Lake District in June, this time taking on the waters of Mold Leisure Centre in North Wales and raising more than £90k for the True Venture Foundation. 

“The atmosphere was brilliant, and I am still in awe of how Sean, and his dedicated crew, got up each day at 4:30am to do this over and over again. His is a fantastic achievement and it was great to be a part of it and to support the work of The True Venture Foundation which seeks to help young people in North Wales to try, love and stay in sport.”
