This February we bring you our first Virtual Triathlon! Now don't worry you don't have to cover the entire distance in one go! All you need to do is pick one of the challenges below and cover that distance in 2020. Previously this was set to one or two months but due to COVID-19 and impact this is happening on all our lives we have changed this to be valid over any time period in 2020.

10 miles

20 miles

40 miles

80 miles

160 miles

320 miles

640 miles

1280 miles

2020 miles

Doesn't matter how long or short each walk, run, cycle or swim is it just needs to add up to at least the total amount chosen by the end of the challenge! Once you have completed the distance simply email your evidence to evidence@challengethenorm.co.uk - simple!

Can I do it as part of a team?

Yes! You can choose to complete the challenge as a team of up to 4 members. We just ask that the group leader (the one that signs up) is the one that submits evidence for all the members.

When is the virtual triathlon?

Previously this challenge was set between 1st May and 30th June over 1 or 2 months. Due to COVID-19, this is now a year challenge. Complete the distance at any point and over any time frame in 2020.

How do I log/track my activity?

You can log your activity in any way you see fit. There are many great apps out there such as Strava, Garmin & Runkeeper (have a look on your phones app store!) You can submit your evidence at any point in 2020 (as soon as you've completed the distance you can submit) and up to the end of January in 2021

What do I get for completing the challenge?

 

You get one of our awesome medals to add to your collection. We also have a range of clothing specially designed for this run that you can purchase here.

Why are you doing this?

We strongly believe in the benefits of physical exercise not only for physical well being but also mental wellbeing. We want to bring people together to start and continue the conversation about mental health.

Mind was chosen as the charity we wanted to support with this initiative as it's a cause that is very close to the director's hearts and does great work promoting mental wellbeing and providing support. For more information on the work Mind do please see their website here - https://www.mind.org.uk/ 

How does this help Mind?

For each person that enters we will donate a minimum of 50% of our profit to Mind. Simply put the more people that enter the lower the cost of the medals we are providing so we can donate more to Mind. So please enter and share with friends, family and fellow cyclists!

Please note this run isn't endorsed or run by Mind. It's run by us, from our own initiative to support Mind.

Keep up the conversation
