Director of Specsavers Romsey, Virginia Graham, has completed her first half ironman race in aid of the charity, Gift of Sight.

Tough challenge

Coming second in her category after completing the 1.2-mile swim; 56-mile bike course and 13.1-mile run in five hours and 51 minutes, she has raised over £600 with her sights set on a £1000 goal.

Community support

Virginia said: ‘Having recently represented Team GB in the 2016 Lisbon ETU Triathlon European Championships, it feels good to get involved with another sporting challenge. The level of support and generosity I’ve received from my family, colleagues at Specsavers and the community has been overwhelming.’
