AFTER battling a gruelling half Ironman triathlon, most competitors would look forward to a well earned rest.

But for Harrogate man Ben Naughton, it will mark the start of an epic fundraising challenge that will see him run, swim, cycle and row almost 500km on five weekends in a row to raise £5,000 for the MS Trust. It was inspired by his friend James Al-Mudallah, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis aged 23 last year and was supported by the charity.
