Adam Dickson

A lifetime fitness enthusiast, Adam was hospitalised in 2004 following brain seizures that cut off the circulation to his legs, leaving him permanently disabled. Since then he has completed many triathlons, aquathlons and a gruelling off-road duathlon. After finishing the London Marathon in 2006 he took part in the inaugural Half-Ironman distance triathlon in the New Forest, England. He was part of the volunteer crew for Ironman UK in 2006 and a year later a competitor in the same race, finishing in a time of 14 hours and 50 minutes. He likes… swimming in a free lane, reading and peanut butter sandwiches.
