The triathlon challenge will see the trio take on freezing cold open water swims, punishing cycle routes and energy sapping runs in three different UK cities, across three nations, in just three days.


The money raised will help tackle issues such as homelessness, domestic abuse, mental health stigma and child poverty. Each competitor has their own personal motivation, which will be revealed along the way.

The challenge will kick-off in Cardiff on Wednesday 11th March, followed by a trip to Glasgow on Thursday 12th March, before the trio head to Manchester where they will complete their third triathlon in as many days, on Friday 13th March, the day of Sport Relief.

BBC Radio 2 listeners will be able to follow the presenters’ progress across the challenge, with regular check-ins on the station’s programmes, supported by hosts including Zoe Ball, Ken Bruce, Jeremy Vine, Steve Wright and Sara Cox. Jo Whiley will face the added demand of hosting her regular Radio 2 evening show live from Cardiff on Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th March, and from BBC Pacific Quay studios in Glasgow on Thursday 12th March with the help of Richie and Reverend Kate, before travelling to Manchester on Friday for the final triathlon.
