From the initial applicants, and after a period of pre-screening and testing, a group of 80 were selected who affectionately became known as the HURTS team (an acronym for Hertfordshire University Research Triathlon Study).This book is a collection of the tales from the people involved with the study, culminating in their own personal adventure to complete the 2013 Challenge Barcelona iron-distance triathlon.Our individual goals: to inspire others to dream big, and to live out those dreams – whether it be triathlon or not.For one: to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for his son, Harrison, who suffers from the debilitating and fatal disorder known as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.Our collective goal - to support Harrison’s Fund, set up in 2012 to support breakthrough research leading to positive interventions and ultimately a ‘cure’ for muscular dystrophy worldwide.Our Mantra – we do for those who cannot…Being an Ironman triathlete requires an iron spirit.

Along our journeys, we have discovered that this spirit resides in each one of us. Together, we DO make a difference…and you can be a part of this.(www.harrisonsfund.com)
