ReConnect NEW YORK Premiere Tickets:


Tim Don is a three-time British Olympian and World Champion in triathlon and duathlon.

Immediately prior to the IRONMAN World Championship in October 2017 – a year in which he had set a new IRONMAN World Record in Brazil – Tim’s dreams were broken, literally, following a bike crash when a car turned in front of him.

A broken neck would lead to three months of rehab in the now infamous ‘Halo’ device.
