So here we are; the final leg of our Get Out and Get Moving Campaign during Lockdown. Whether you’re the new to the campaign and a budding Swimmer or Paddler, or you have already completed Your Marathon and are participating in Tour de Cornwall, Team CHC are proud to launch YOUR SWIM YOUR WAY . Following your fantastic support and lovely feedback of Your Marathon and Tour de Cornwall, we recognised that if we added a swim to the series we would then have our very own IRONMAN TRIATHLON!
To make this inclusive, along with the other two challenges, we won’t insist on a swim – you can swim it or paddle it. You’ll have all of July to complete 2.4 miles of swimming OR a half Marathon 13.1 Miles of paddling – wherever you can and at your pace.
We will, of course be offering another fabulous medal for this, but if you have completed all three challenges we will be awarding you our exclusive Team CHC Lockdown Ironman Triathlon Medal and that will definitely be one to show the grandchildren! So head on down to the tropical waters around our fine coast, grit your teeth and get going!
The starting gun will be at 7am on the 1st July and you will have until Midnight on 31st July to finish Your Swim.
We’re also offering a certificate with your choice of photo on completion and lots of encouragement and laughs in our online Strava Club @TeamCHC (please do make sure you join us).
If you’ve already completed Your Marathon and want to enter the Triathlon, you can also enter the Tour de Cornwall Cycling challenge here.
Entry fees for Your Swim Your Way are £10 per adult £5 children and there’s a spot of Merch on offer too! Grab yourself a Team CHC Cycling Jersey, Running Vest or Supporter T-shirt to show the world you’re supporting your local Hospice – click here to purchase.
Whilst this is all great fun, it would be amazing if you could find a few friends to support you. Every penny counts to fund the care we provide at Mount Edgcumbe and St Julia’s hospices and you will have helped make a huge difference in these tough times.
