This marks the beginning of our 10th year here at The Reasons Why Foundation, so we have a target this year, we want 50 entries for this event and we are confident that we can acheive, or better still, exceed this.
The RWF are bringing together our 'Challenge Team 2021' to take part in this event and fundraise to support our mentoring provision for people who are either returning home after being in custody, are at risk of offending or those with offending histories that are preventing them from progressing in life, with our support 8 out of 10 will create new lives, not returning to crime.
We need to fundraise as part of our overall strategy to keep our services available to those that need them the most.
There is a choice of events, and complete beginners are very welcome (and encouraged!) – it’s a 'fun'draiser after all!
You can do the whole triathlon on your own or you can do it as part of a relay team of two or three people. We can also help match you with a team if you want to take part in just one or two disciplines and don't have a team of friends to sign up. You can do the Sprint distance or the Olympic distance Triathlon or opt for the Duathlon event.

Sign up with us first to receive further joining instructions and your discount code before entering the event. As this is a fundraiser you need to cover the cost of the discounted entry yourself, not using any money you raise. Don't forget that if you enter the relay, the team entry cost it is split between two or three, depending on how many of you are doing it.
There will be some group training if there is interest in the run-up to the event. More information about how to start fundraising and the event organisation will come via email from us once you have signed up using the form below.
