A virtual triathlon is a triathlon which takes place indoors - possibly down at your local gym or perhaps in your office.
A Triathlon consists of 1500 swim, 20km cycle and 5km run.
To take part, you need to cycle (on a rowing machine); run (on a treadmill) and swim in a pool (or if you don’t have use of a pool, use a rowing machine instead).
How to organise it
- Contact your local gym and ask if you could host the event there or alternatively whether they could loan the equipment to your office.
- Choose a date
- Challenge employees to sign up and start fundraising.
