Chris Stallwood, 46, stopped shaving in January and has taken part in endurance events each month from February to raise money for the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service (ADCHS).
Chris, who works for Penguins event agency in Vansittart Road, Windsor, said: "I haven't trimmed or shaved my beard or moustache for what must be 170 days so it's quite bushy and long.
"It's becoming quite a handful and I can see it in my peripheral vision so it's a little bit annoying."
The warehouse facilities manager, from Maidenhead, has already taken part in a 2,500-metre swim at Windsor Leisure Centre, the Surrey Hills Cyclone, the Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Race, the Eton Dorney Triathlon and, most recently, the Jubilee River Swim on Sunday, June 8.
He is now preparing to take part in the 100km Race to the Stones 'ultramarathon' from Oxfordshire to Wiltshire along with his colleagues on July 19 and 20.
He said: "We're not going to run it so we should be able to finish it if everything goes to plan."
Chris, who is father to Isabella, 12, and Charlie, eight, is aiming to raise £10,000 by the end of the year and has already raised more than £1,300.
