Along with thousands of others, James Simpson, 27, is eagerly preparing for the London Beast set for November 9, 2013. The finish will earn the Leeds native his coveted Trifecta; he’s successfully completed his Super and Sprint already.

The London Spartan Beast finish will mark the end of several busy months of training and racing for the retired Lance Bombardier. What makes Simpson so unique is that he is the first UK double amputee to finish a Spartan Race, let alone earn a Trifecta.

His story is highlighted in this feature on his finish on his first finish earlier this year.

Good luck, James!
