TRI-ing for the Rovers 2015

Monday, April 13th, 2015

Trust member Carol Smith is preparing for another fundraising triathlon in Barcelona. Read on for details of her progress and how to sponsor her!
 
 
The past three Octobers I have taken part in the Garmin Triathlon here in Barcelona to raise funds and support for Raith Supporters Trust.
In 2012 I completed a super sprint (400m swim, 10km bike and 2.5km run), in 2013/14 I upped the distance to sprint (750m swim, 20km bike and 5km). This year I am going to up that distance again and do the Olympic event, 1500m swim, 40km bike and 10km run. But that is not all…

TRI-ing for the Rovers is going to do a TRI of sporting events over 10 weeks.
1. On May 9th I will slip into the wetsuit and complete 2000m open water swim along the beach front of Barcelona.
2. On June 21st the main event takes place, The Garmin Triathlon.
3. To top it off on July 19th I will complete a sprint distance Triathlon, again along the beach front of Barcelona.

In total we hope to complete 79,250m, I will even think about running an 750m at the end to make it an even 80,000!

Of course I can’t do any of this without the support of all of you guys (and a very patient family). Thanks for the likes, the comments and of course the sponsorship.
