Peter Taylor (pictured right in the above photo), who left Bolton School in 1998, was a competitor in last year’s Swimrun World Championship held at Sandhamn, Sweden on the 6th of September 2021. Competitors work in teams of two and Peter was partnered by Tim Calver who is an Australian Youth Triathlon international.

The course for the final at the legendary venue of Otillo was a continuous run of 65.13 kilometres and a swim of 9.45 kilometres over and between 24 islands. The pair, competing under the name of Team Marauders, had to carry all the equipment that they needed to use and had to remain within 10m of each other at all times!

Another former pupil and London Olympian, Ed Scott, has just taken part in the Otillo Swimrun challenge on the Isles of Scilly.
