Fabio Spiteri to challenge himself for good cause

Fabio Spiteri is an inspirational figure in the ultra-endurance sports world, particularly known for his remarkable achievements in long distance triathlons and cycles around Sicily. Last year his attempt to complete the Deca x 10 Triathlon in Brazil saw him raise €52,000 for cat feeders and animal shelters.

Inspite of injury last year, his passion for endurance sport and the well being of animals has not diminished such that Project 100 was recently launched.

Drawn from his love of animals, particularly those who are abandoned or ill treated and who depend on animal shelters, Project 100 is a continuation of Spiteri’s efforts to raise thousands of euros in funds towards animals’ well being.

This year Spiteri will be undertaking two gruelling races, the Quintuple Ironman World Championships in Colmar, France and the Deca x10 Ironman in Italy.

His first sortie, will be the Quintuple Ironman World Championships in Colmar, France, which will consist of 5 Ironman distances in quick succession and will start on the 24th June.

To the unitiated this consists of a 19km swim a 900km bike and a 211km run. Spiteri is no stranger to this race, having completed this race two years ago with a total time of 111 hours. This race will serve Spiteri well as it is part of his preparation for the Deca x 10 Ironman later on in September.

The Deca 10x Ironman in is double the distance – 38km swim, 1800km and 422km – such is the gruelling nature of this endeavour, that only 10 people have applied, and far less will eventually finish.

For Spiteri there is unfinished business with the Deca, his endeavour being cut short after suffering from painful blisters and a torn muscle. 

As he aims to be the first Maltese to complete the Deca, he explained that such endeavours are carried out because they are a good way to pique interest amongst the non-sporting community to donate money towards this worthy cause.

“There are less than 100 people who have managed to complete the Deca, so am very determined to achieve this goal this year. That said, from the start of the Quintaple until the end of Deca we have around five months to raise the targeted amount which will see food and medicines distributed amongst animal shelters and feeders. I am counting in well known Maltese generosity for me to reach this target” commented Spiteri.

Project 100 is sponsored by Royal Canin Malta, GasanMamo Insurance, Betclic, Visit Malta, ProUp, and supported Wheel Wizard (Malta), Eurosport Malta, Garmin Malta, Go&Fun Green Energy Drink, ABUS Cycling, Rise Physio +, For A Cause Events, Masseur Philip Cachia, 24/7 Fitness Club, Waggo’s, and Kuluri.
