Tri2Cure’s backers say they have four aims with the project: introduce triathlon to the general public, encourage people to adopt a healthier lifestyle; invite them to take their first steps in triathlon, and create awareness for the Anticancer Fund.
There are however a few rules…
– All triathletes (no matter distance nor level) have the right to nominate three non-triathletes for the challenge;
– If you are challenged, you have to practise the three sports within two weeks;
– The minimum distances are: 750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run (a sprint triathlon). It’s not a competition, you do the distances according to your own abilities.
– You prove it by sharing photos of you on your social media.
– If not, you donate an amount to the the Anticancer Fund
– If you have completed the challenge, or if you have donated, you may nominate three other people.
