IT’S three times the pain as James Bell prepares to prove he’s a man of iron – and raise money for St Luke’s Hospice.
James, aged 32, a construction manager of Woodseats, will be pushing himself to the limit in the gruelling Ironman Triathlon in the French city of Nice this Sunday.
James will complete a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and full marathon run.
“James has been doing triathlons for three years and has been training very hard for this one,” said wife Julia.
“He is hoping to complete the challenge in something like 12 hours.”
