2013 Censored Tri Distance Challenge – Get MOTIVATED. GET FIT. GIVE BACK!!
Need some motivation to get moving in January? Busy making your New Year’s resolution that includes some form of exercise? Join the Tampa Bay TriGals and the over 200 participants that each year commit to swimming; biking and running in the month of January. Not only is this a good way to get motivated – the winners in each of our 5 categories get to donate money to the charity of their choice. In our sixth year, we have donated over $10,000 to a variety of fabulous charities: Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; Duke Brain Tumor; Silent Ride; Challenged Athletes; Multiple Sclerosis; and SPCA just to name a few.
How does it work? It’s easy…
Censored Distance Challenge is completed incrementally throughout the course of the month. From January 1st – 31st, participants will strive to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run 26.2 miles. Participants log their miles on the honor system as they are accrued and submit weekly via our webforms.
If you are in it for the shirt, you will NOT be disappointed… We provide a long sleeve dry-fit T-shirt for ALL participants, regardless of miles logged. Shirts are distributed at the awards celebration in February (date/time/place TBD). During the party we will announce our winners in each division. Winners are determined by the MOST MILES attributed to a full Triathlon. You do not need to be present to win. (see official rules for details)
Winners will receive a monetary donation to their favorite charity. The amount of each donation will depend on the number of overall registrants for the Iron Distance Challenge. Not a swimmer? Don’t like getting on a bike?? There is a category for you! Treadmills count for your run! See the below categories to see where you best fit in …
Individual: The overall winner will be determined by the total number of completed Iron Distances. Individual Kid winner (13 and under) will receive a gift card and goodie bag items.
