A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS are in order for Linear's Donal Collins who completed his first Iron Man challenge at Kielder.

He did his 1.2mile swim in an impressive 53 minutes, then onto his 56mile bike ride which took him just over 3 hours 40, and then the half marathon to finish in just under 2 hours 20, giving him a total time of 7 hours, 8 minutes and 22 seconds - just brilliant!

He's not feeling too sore either - although he's expecting those DOMS to kick in soon. On top of that, he's raised £435 for one of Linear's nominated charities TOFS. Fantastic!

We're all very proud of you Don!
