A compelling blood, sweat and tears account of competing in one of toughest sporting endurance challenges known to man

How would you like to swim 2.4 miles, cycle 116 miles and then run 26.2 miles... and then do it again for ten consecutive days! This is the endurance race called the UK 'Deca' Enduroman Iron distance triathlon. This tells the remarkable story of Irishman Gerry Duffy who along with nineteen other competitors set out to win this event. Only three finished the gruelling event and Gerry crossed the line in first place.

In Tick, Tock, Ten Gerry Duffy gives us a blow by blow account of the race. It details how he overcame bouts of hallucination and endured the greatest physical pain. The story is supplemented by dialogue from some of the other competitors. This is a story of making choices, taking on the challenge and never giving up. 'A contender for the title, Ireland's Most Remarkable Sportsman' Des Cahill, RTE
