A Cumbrian climber who was leading an expedition on Everest when the earthquakes hit Nepal in April is training to complete 3 extreme sports challenges in the Lake District back to back to raise money for the rebuilding of the country.

Tim Mosedale is training for 50 days to attempt to swim Derwent Water and back, cycle the Fred Whitton route then run the Bob Graham Round in 48 hours, an extreme triathlon.

The swim is 4.5Km each way, the cycle is a grueling 112 miles over 6 Lakeland passes and the run is a 66-mile ultra marathon taking in 42 peaks and 27,000ft ascent and descent.
