It seems like everyone from Katie Price to Katie Holmes is getting into their endurance fitness so why not set a challenge for yourself? The perfect place to start might just be the Ramsay Health Care Triathlon Pink Series 2010/2011.
The women-only event is for all ages and fitness levels and raises funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Triathlon Pink event founder, Brett James, is thrilled with the number of ‘Pinkies’ taking part in the events around the nation this year.
“Since the event’s inception in 2007, The Ramsay Health Care Triathlon Pink Series has raised more than $400,000 for the official event charity, the National Breast Cancer Foundation,” said Brett.
“Our aim is to stage an event which is fun, friendly and non-competitive so women of all ages and fitness levels are motivated to exercise and can enjoy the feeling of achievement by taking part.
“To help those who have not been active for a while or those who have never done an activity such as this, we’ve arranged training groups as well as on line chats and forums, such as the Facebook page where tips and advice are provided.”
This summer’s Triathlon Pink Series will kick off on the Sunshine Coast (12/09/10) with events following in Sydney (16/10/10), Gold Coast (24/10/10), Perth (7/11/10) and Melbourne (23/01/10).
Triathlon Pink encompasses swimming, cycling and running legs. The event is a fun and achievable initiative catering for everyday women of all ages – participants commonly range from age seven to 70!
You can compete as an individual or get together with a group of friends and compete as a team where each person completes one of the three disciplines, much like a relay.
You can even choose a course length to suit your fitness level as the event has long, medium, short and kids courses.
Long course triathlon: 300m swim/9km ride/3km run
Medium course triathlon: 200m swim/6km ride/2km run
Short course triathlon: 100m swim/3km ride/1km run
Kids triathlon: 50m swim/1.5km ride/500m run
