A SUPER-FIT chemist is taking on the UK Ironman Triathlon to help raise money for Ashgate Hospice and the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

David Smith, of Peak Pharmacy, in Dronfield, will be swimming 2.4miles, cycling 112miles and finally running 26.2miles dressed as Scooby Doo during the event in Bolton, on Sunday.
