Tri For Life is the UK’s annual charity triathlon event that combines a fun, challenging day out with raising money for worthwhile causes. The 2008 and ‘09 events collectively raised £300,000 and the target for 2010 is to raise £200,000.

The chosen charities for 2010 include Rays of Sunshine, World Jewish Relief, Great Ormond Street Hospital, and Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. In addition, a significant proportion of the funds raised will be distributed to a variety of much smaller, lesser well-known charities. These can be nominated by entrants on the site.



On Sunday 5 September in Eton, Windsor, whether you choose to do a triathlon (long or short distance) or a duathlon (run, bike, run), there’s the promise of a great day ahead for the whole family. Kids can take part, too, with a scootathlon and a 2.5k fun run. There’ll also be a dedicated area for the little ones with face painters, bouncy castles and go-karts.

Enter as part of a relay team, sharing the swim, bike and run between your friends or family. Lawrence Dallaglio will be taking part with his own wave for the Dallaglio Foundation/Cancer Research. Sign up at www.triforlife.co.uk. All participants are required to raise a minimum amount of £200 sponsorship.
