On 3rd July Simon completed the Maratona Dles Dolomites in aid of WATSAN, completing 138km and six ascents in 8 hours and 53 minutes.

WATSAN is incredibly grateful to Simon for his magnificent achievement in completing the marathon, an annual single-day road bicycle race covering seven mountain passes in the Dolomites. Open to amateur cyclists, the Maratona – with 9,000 riders from over 70 nations – is one of the biggest Italian Granfondo bicycle races.

Simon’s personal video of the race can be seen below!

Simon’s fundraising will go towards the construction of a new gravity flow scheme at Kazuru, which is WATSAN’s current target project.

Simon has raised over £400 so far, but we think he deserves more for completing such a gruelling challenge! You can still donate to show your support for Simon and WATSAN via his Stewardship page.
