Dentist takes on Iron Man challenge

Charity challenge is dentist's biggest yet

It’s not an easy decision to make but nevertheless, dentist, Dr Tim Doswell from The Smile Spa dental practice in Stockton-on-Tees, decided that 2013 would be the year he competes in an Iron Man challenge.

Over the past eight months, Tim has trained intensively for the gruelling course which includes; 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run, for which he is raising funds for Liverpool’s Alderhey Children’s hospital.

Simon Andrews, clinical director of The Smile Spa, said: 'We are all immensely proud of Tim’s effort and determination. He has trained hard and we wish him all the very best on the day.'

Tim added: 'I’ve previously completed triathlons, but the Iron Man challenge is on a completely different level. It’s going to be incredibly intense but I’m hoping to enjoy it!’

The Pembroke Iron Man takes place on Sunday 8 September. If you would like to support Tim, please visit
