Day three and it started hurting Greg. A lot. He’s now just over halfway done. The day’s triathlon started with a near-freezing outdoor swim which pushed Greg to the edge, before the cycle and run saw an exhausted Greg finally finish at BBC Radio Scotland. Greg called in regular updates to BBC Radio 1 throughout the day in between each of his events.

How we help in Glasgow

Many young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people drop out of sport because of bullying and negative attitudes to gender. Funded with Sport Relief cash, LEAP Sports Scotland uses sport to help young LGBT people develop life skills and confidence and is just one of a number of projects we’re proud to fund in Glasgow.
