Dale takes on the Spartan Trifecta

Published May 7, 2024

On May 11 & 12th Dale Jones embarked on yet another remarkable fundraising event for PACE Charitable Trust: the Spartan Trifecta.


Dale’s Journey

Dale’s commitment to PACE runs deep. He started as a volunteer in 2007 and progressed to become a team leader and qualified coach at PACE. His infectious enthusiasm and positive attitude perfectly align with PACE’s values. In the past, Dale has shared, “I owe PACE a tremendous amount. Whether it’s the countless Boccia medals, team leader awards, or the recent Queen’s Award, I’m constantly inspired by PACE’s achievements. Being part of this wonderful group is an honor, and these fundraising events are my way of saying thank you”.

From Tough Mudder to Spartan BEAST

This wasn’t Dale’s first rodeo. In 2019, he tackled the Tough Mudder, a mud-soaked endurance challenge. But how did Dale discover this unusual passion for wading through sludgy mud and overcoming exhausting obstacles? “A total of seven of us are taking part,” Dale explained. “Some are gym instructors who first got me hooked on Tough Mudder and Spartan events. The camaraderie that sport brings—something many at PACE can relate to.”

This year along with his  cousin Matt, Dale will be taking part in the Spartan Trifecta on May 11th and 12th.

The Trifecta involves completing 3 obstacle races over 2 days.

  1. Day 1 is a 21km 30 obstacle race.
  2. Day 2 is a 15km 25 obstacle race followed a few hours later by a 5km 20 obstacle race.

For more details head to the Spartan Trifecta to see what the race involves.

Ahead of his upcoming challenge, Dale said…

I’m doing the race for 2 reasons, firstly is that I like to constantly push the boundaries of my fitness and comfort zones and secondly to raise money for PACE a charitable trust that promotes social and physical well being for disabled adults and children.

I have been personally involved with PACE since 2007 as a volunteer. I’m glad to have my cousin there to support me this time around and together I’m sure we can overcome the challenges.

If you’d like to support Dale’s Spartan Race and contribute to PACE’s mission, consider donating to his fundraising page. Every contribution makes a difference, and together, we can help disabled individuals thrive through the power of sport.

Remember, Dale’s determination isn’t just about conquering obstacles—it’s about creating more amazing stories yet to be written. Let’s cheer him on as he races toward the finish line!
