Ironman? For Wimps. Try Celtman. On TV Sunday.

If you are into triathlon, do not miss this TV programme Sunday 9th December.

Triathlon doesn't always translate well to TV unless it's live. But The Adventure Show coverage of the first Celtman event feels more like a documentary.  

I edited it and had fantastic material to work with. Mind you, just watching was exhausting.

It all happens in Torridon and teeters on the edge of what the human body can cope with in a one-day event. A 3.8 km open water swim across a sea loch. A 202km (185 mile) bike ride around a hilly course. Then a 42km run, a full 26 mile marathon over a 3,314ft high mountain, Beinn Eighe.

After every edition, people cry "why is this superb show only broadcast in Scotland". While nice to hear, there's nothing I can do as I'm just a hired hand. Triple Echo Productions are the people behind the excellent show and, while the don't update their website very often, you can reach them through The Adventure Show - Facebook page.

And in this digital age the programme can be picked up around the UK.  It's on Sky 990, Freesat 990, Virgin and of course, the iPlayer for seven days.
