About Me


My name is Mark Yates and I live in Bury, Lancashire with my partner and daughter.  We own a rescue cat and two bonkers labradors.  Over the last few years I have completed a number of Ultra Marathons, Mountain Marathons and Ironman Triathlons.  In 2015 I finished the Brutal Triple Iron Distance Triathlon.  It was a life changing experience and once I recovered I wanted a new, bigger and harder challenge.  In 2016 I looked to complete my first Deca, a self planned 10 x Iron Distance Triathlon back to back challenge (The Ugly 10) over 10 days; on 10th September 2016 I successfully crossed the finish line.

2017 is going to be a big year where I go beyond the Deca…………
