Recon athlete Joe Skipper breaks Ironman record

Blog: Insights and Commentary – William Parry


When Joe Skipper partnered with us and started training with Jet this spring, we had a feeling he’d go far. Last month at Challenge Roth 2016, Joe proved us right. His 7:56:23 total time was the fastest ever set by a British triathlete, and his 02:38:52 run was impressive in its own regard.

Joe is now gearing up for Ironman 70.3 Dublin later this month—and, of course, the Ironman World Championship in October. We’ll be supporting him along the way.
