Watch as the day unfolds when Greg McDermott swims 3.8km, rides 180km and runs a marathon to finish a solo Ironman distance triathlon in 14 hours, with the help and support of a few friends.

Greg McDermott aka The Fruit Guy will be taking on the challenge & completing a solo full Ironman distance triathlon on Sat 2nd May in the Hills District, Sydney. NO city shutdown, NO huge crowds, NO finish chute, NO medal.

We launched our Zeal2u Solo Ironman Triathlon event with a Pasta Party and Charity Fundraising Night for Youth Off The Streets. Hear from some inspirational speakers from sports people, business owners and YOTS Relationships Manager about how their charity helps Australian youths.

My journey to where I am today actually started quite a long time ago but until I was mentally ready to make the changes necessary to fulfill my dreams, nothing had actually happened for me.
