Physiotherapists Matt and Stuart, who have been working at King's throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, have clocked up their Kilometres for King's with a gruelling Ironman challenge.



On Saturday 18th July 2020 Matt and Stuart undertook an epic test of endurance consisting of a 5km run, 90km cycle, 21km run. Starting in Windsor, and finishing at King's College Hospital in Denmark Hill, they were greeted at the finish line with rapturous applause.

 

"We both felt very buzzed but also very very tired. An odd mix!", said Matt. 

 

Matt and Stuart decided to don the cycling shorts and trainers as part of the Kilometres for King's challenge. Sponsored by Rapha and Beeline, they powered well past their target of raising £2,000 for the Hospital Heroes Appeal, which is supporting staff, patients and families impacted by COVID-19.
