Fancy racing with the Brownlees as one of their team members in a relay? Then read on...
Alistair and Jonny Brownlee will be participating in the half-distance relay at Challenge Forte Village on separate teams, and athletes will be able to bid for the remaining four team places through Ebay.
The highest bidders will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to race and dine with the triathlon Olympic medallists. The auction, starting today (Sept 20) will close on 28 September 2017 at 00:14:35, and you can join in with the bidding here
The Brownlee brothers will start the relay with the swimming leg, and the winners can choose to join the cycling or running part of the race.
All proceeds will be donated to the Italian charity, LAVS – Libera Associazione Voluntaria Soccorso. Founded in 1986, volunteers provide local medical assistance in case of emergency. Among other things, they provide emergency bikes equipped for reanimation and trauma going where the ambulance cannot reach, i.e. the beach.
Taking place on the 29 October this is the 5th edition of the race held in beautiful Sardinaia.
Andrea Mentasti, Manager of the Challenge Forte Village event, said: ‘The participation of the Brownlee brothers will put Sardinia on the map for triathlon enthusiasts around the world.’
