Andy Cittern-Jones from Woosehill, who is expecting his first child with his wife, is taking on the 108 mile challenge for charity Building for the Future, based in Wokingham.
Mr Chittern-Jones decided to row 26 miles, the distance from Calais to Brighton, bike 56 miles, the distance from Brighton to London, and finally run a marathon distance of 26 miles, on Saturday December 14.
Mr Chittern-Jones said: “I’ve done stuff for other big charities like Alzheimers, and this time I wanted to do something for the smaller local charities.
“I wanted to do something that was a challenge, something I wasn’t 100% sure I could do. But also, if people see you’re just running a marathon, they might think you can do that anyway, but this has the shock factor, it draws people in.”
He added the only trouble was what to do for next year.
Confident he will complete it in his 12 hour time frame 7.30am - 7.30pm, Virgin Active Gym, Denmark Street, Wokingham, where he’s completing the feat, will host an open day for people to come to watch and donate.
