Rob’s Ironman Challenge

Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end

Emanuel Whittaker were proud to sponsor one of our partner contractors, Liquid Roofing’s Rob Lomax take on the gruelling Ironman UK 2012 challenge in Bolton.  The challenge consists of a 2.4 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile cycle ride, finishing with a 26.2 mile run.

Rob had a special reason for entering the challenge.  A couple of years ago a childhood friend of Robs tragically died at the age of 35, leaving behind an eight month pregnant wife and a two year old daughter. Following this, the Chris Hindley Memorial Trust was set up to support Chris’s family. Rob and his close friend Nick trained tirelessly for the event and raised an amazing £7,500 for the Memorial Trust.
