In October 2017 Ger not only completed DecaUK, 10 Ironman’s in 10 days, but he also won the event by more than four and a half hours ahead of his closest competitor. In 2018 Ger took on another massive challenge after teaming up with Mental Health Ireland to help raise funding and awareness for mental health and tasking himself with completing 52 Ironman’s in 52 weeks for 2018, one Ironman being a 3.8k swim, 180k cycle and a 42k marathon run.
