Blazin’ IronKiwi Challenge


From runsignup.com

Ever wanted to do an Ironman but don’t want to pay $700+ to do it? Join the Blazin IronKiwi Challenge presented by PRS Triathlon to promote awareness of TEAM CHM in raising critical funds to find a cure for Choroideremia and in support of Bike MS and their effort to find a cure for MS.

Participants have from June 1-June 30 to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run 26.2 miles. The 30-day challenge enables participants to exercise at their own pace. Swimming can be done in an indoor pool or accessible lake/pond/ocean, and any stroke can be used to complete the required distance (e.g. crawl stroke, breast stroke, back stroke, or even doggy paddling). Biking portion can be completing outdoors or on an indoor stationary bike. The 26.2 miles can be run or walked using tracks, trails, roads or treadmills.

FUN FACT: Belgian triathlete Marino Vanhoenacker holds the world record for an Ironman Triathlon with a time of 7 hours, 45 minutes and 58 seconds. (Personal note: I SLEEP longer than that!)
