March 15th - April 15th
With no Triathlon from us in 2018, we still have 100 medals from 2017 and we were not sure what to do with them.
Having spoken to the great people at FIGHT BACK MENTAL HEATH we are going to hold a virtual triathlon.
SUPER SPRINT, SPRINT, OLYMPIC, IRON MAN.
The Virtual triathlon can be entered by anyone (Limited to 100) and simply all you have to do is carry on your normal training or start some.
Email us the details of your training and we will collate these and keep a leader board of those putting in some serious effort or those just pottering about enjoying training (You dont have to send your training, it may make it more interesting).
This isn't about being super human, its about using something (The medals), for some good instead of just putting them in a box under the other boxes off old medals.
Every penny of the entrance fee £10.00 will go to FIGHT BACK METAL HEALTH
, to help them with there insurance costs.
It will also :-
Motivate you to train.
And give you something additional to train for.
You can enter anytime between March 15th and April 15th, and it doesn't matter how much you do, you can just follow your normal training plan or dip your toe, bike a few km's and run 2km.
The effort really is up to you, no one will judge Training is Training
After April 15th we will post you out the Medal, its that simple.
Our aim is to engage people who use the mental health service, carer's, friends, family and people who would just like better understanding of mental health. We feel that exercise and routine is the key to staying well and is a brilliant way for people to meet other people sharing similar experiences. We have staff who work in mental health who come to the group and are there for people to talk too and help give advice, also they are there to get there self's in shape. We have peer specialist's who do fantastic talks and share there knowledge and experience about there own recovery. This group runs every Monday from 10:00-12:00 and is FREE yep you heard it (or read it) FRRRREEEEEEEEEE.
