Benali’s Iron Fran – 7 Iron Mans In 7 Days

In memory of

Owen Jones

OJ's team will be running alongside Francis Benali in the last leg of his 7-day Ironman Challenge in memory of Owen Jones, and anyone else who is fighting or lost their fight to cancer. Kayleigh and Ryan, will be running the half marathon alongside Benali and Millie and Phoebe who will be running the 10k, a first for us all! We are all very passionate about this amazing cause and want to show our support towards Benali by helping him reach his goal of 1 million for Cancer Research. Together we WILL beat cancer!

Francis Benali is a former Southampton FC player who launched a £1m fundraising mission for Cancer Research UK through a series of gruelling physical challenges. The first took place in 2014 and saw Benali run a 1,000 miles between the Premier League football grounds in England. Two years later he completed his second ultra-challenge, running and cycling between Premier League and Championship grounds.

Now he’s about to take on his third and final challenge in a bid to hit his £1m target by undertaking a superhuman seven Ironman distance triathlons on seven consecutive days between 29th April – 5th May 2019 – that’s a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, 26.2 mile run over a 1,000 miles in one week!
