The SCI Tri Challenge
Accessibility: Fully accessible
The SCI Tri Challenge is a swim/cycle/run challenge like a triathlon. However, it is designed to be accessible to as many people as possible from the young to the older to the not-very-fit-but-willing to the super fit.
You can take part either by doing all three elements yourself or by forming a team with one or two friends so that the three elements are covered between your team.
The funds raised from taking part will go towards supporting the work of Aspire, Back Up and Spinal Research.
All three charities are very different and make a huge difference. By taking part in the SCI Tri challenge, you will be able to support them all to carry on their vital work.
How does it work?
There are three suggested options – the Mini, the Midi and the Maxi:
The mini involves a 1km walk/run/wheel, a 5km cycle or para-cycle and a 50 length swim.
The midi involves a 5km walk/run/wheel, a 50km cycle or para-cycle and a 500 length swim.
The maxi involves a 10km walk/run/wheel, a 100km cycle or para-cycle and a 1000 length swim.
There is also a make your own option where you can determine your own distances.
The challenge will be running over July and August with all teams aiming to have every part of the challenge completed during those months.
“The event is about being part of something. It’s for everyone to get involved with, regardless of ability. It‘s not how far you go or how fast you do it that matters but setting distances that challenge you which, when done, will make you feel brilliant about what you have achieved.”
