Swim/Bike/Run Virtual Challenge

31 Jan 2018


It's the start of a new year and the start of new challenges.  If you think one virtual event is exciting, consider the fun of three activities in one! Complete your very own virtual multisport challenge by swimming, cycling and running, but at your own pace and without the pressure of a race environment! This event is a great way to motivate yourself throughout the year and watch the miles add up.

There are two distances on offer either 1,000 or 2,000 miles to be completed by the end of 2018. This is your challenge, so you can race it your way! Unlike an actual tri, you can complete your swim, bike, and run miles in any order and whenever you wish over the next 12 months. The choice is completely up to you! It’s your race, your rules, so you do the disciplines and the distances you choose and when they fit in with your schedule.  You can run on a treadmill or run outside. You can participate in another race. You can cycle on a static bike or cycle outside.  You can swim in a pool, a lake or the sea! You can run your race at your pace anywhere in the world. If you have always fancied giving triathlon a go but have held back for whatever reason, well this is your perfect chance to give it a try.

Motivate yourself and bring “Bling” to your training! Book your place now in the Virtual Challenge and earn yourself a lovely colourful medal (measuring 55mm in diameter) that will be personally engraved with your name and challenge. There will also be prizes for the top Males and Females that will be posted out at the same time as your medal for those with the greatest overall miles.

For every entry a £1 will be donated to Crisis UK - 

Okay, so how do ‘Virtual Triathlons’ work?

How will it work! 

The challenge will start as soon as you sign up, however all miles will count from the 1st January. You will have until the 31st of January to sign up to the challenge. Once you have entered, I will ask you to sign up to a strava group where I will keep a log of your miles at the end of every month. If you are not part of Strava I will provide an email address where you can submit your miles to. I will need your swim, bike and run miles. I will convert all miles into total run miles by using the following formula:-

For every 1ml swam I will convert this into 4 miles of running

For every 3ml cycled, I will convert this into 1 mile of running

For every 1ml ran/walked, this will equate to 1 mile of running :) 

If you are not happy with this formula please do not sign up, but after carrying out research, I feel this is the fairest way to work it out. All miles submitted will be based on trust, but I am sure you are all a trust worthy bunch.

Start counting the days until your race bling arrives!

As soon as you complete your miles, your medal will be posted to you. If you are an overall winner you will be sent your prize at the end of the year...good luck.

Look forward to seeing you on the challenge!
