Nerys Jones is a British marathoner and ultrarunner. In 2021, she took on the Devon Coastal Challenge multi-day ultra tackling three marathons in a row with a time of 15 hours, 44 minutes, and 51 seconds. Part of the Royal Army Physical Training Corps, she is also on the team claiming a new world record for the fastest relay time on foot from Land’s End to John O’Groats logging a cumulative time nearly one day faster than the previous record. A former Team GB biathlete, Jones competed in the 2014/15 World Cup season and represented the United Kingdom at the Biathlon World Championships 2015 in Kontiolahti.
The six-time Ironman Hawaii winner has calculated that the Pho3nix Sub8 Project, powered by Zwift will provide conditions for an even faster time than expected.
2022 will be a year of two seasons for Lucy Charles-Barclay. This first half aiming to defend her Ironman 70.3 world title, and then be the first to go Sub8. The second half, become the Ironman world champion in St. George and Kona, and perhaps get on the road to the Paris Olympics.
