One triathlon is usually enough for most, but not for farmer Nick Bragg (pictured). During 2017, Nick has completed not one, but three triathlons! He has raised over £1,600 with additional donations still rolling in.
At the beginning of the year, Nick started training for his first challenge. He said: “I don’t do a lot outside of farming so I wanted to do something different and found I really enjoyed running and training. It was a relief from everyday stresses.”
In May, Nick entered his first triathlon in Taunton. Four months and a lot of extra training later, he completed his second event in Midsomer Norton, then finished his trio of triathlons a week after that in Portland.
Nick said. “It was definitely worth it, not only for myself but for R.A.B.I. I’m already thinking about what to do next year!”
With wife Claire, Nick continues to run Frogmary Green Farm in Somerset, which the couple bought in 1990. As well as farming mixed arable and poultry, they also run cookery classes.
This isn’t the first time Nick has raised funds for R.A.B.I. For the past three years, he has hosted a beef dinner at his farm in aid of Great British Beef Week.
