As we’ve been advising for some months previous, next week on the 12th of May we’re celebrating the 10th Indoor Community Triathlon event.
This year the funds raised will go to Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Deu, who work to support inclusivity and equal opportunities for people with illnesses in our society.
Enrolment has been ongoing since the 16th of April, and as in previous years you can sign up in person at CEM Colom or at CEM Can Ricart or else online by visiting our website www.canricart.com. The entire enrolment fee of €9.50 (+€0.50) to participate will be donated to the designated body. Make the most of the last few days of training and if you haven’t already done so take the opportunity to enrol now.
If you cannot take part in the trial, you can sponsor per kilometre which will be converted into funds to support the designated body in their project, or else make a donation in the first row (Fila 0) of the body with this account number: ES94 2100 0117 9102 0045 7506. You can also participate as a volunteer on the day of the trial to help with the organisation of the big event. If you’d like to take part as a volunteer, all you have to do is send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the new developments in this year’s event is that a large part of the trial will take place outdoors. Every year, the Triathlon takes place at the Can Ricart facilities and in the area around the sports centre. A section of the road race will take place along La Rambla del Raval in a circular course of 600 metres in length. For this year’s event we’ve suggested taking the cycling stage to the street also, meaning that both the road race and the cycling will take place in the area surrounding the Can Ricart sports centre. This organisational challenge is in keeping with our intention to make the event a little more exciting and enjoyable year on year.
Don’t forget that the enrolment is only for participation in the sports trial.
Remember that when you enrol online you have to choose the right category before making the final payment. Enrolment categories are the following:
Individual: a single participant who performs all three disciplines.
Team of 2 participants collectively performing the 3 disciplines (swimming, cycling, road race) between them wearing the same number.
Team of 3 participants wearing a single number. Each member performs one of the three disciplines (swimming, cycling, road race)
Online enrolments will close one week before the trial, if after having enrolled you cannot take part in the event, please, send an e-mail to email@example.com so that we can organise the waiting list. We always have people who want to participate but cannot do so because there are no more places, so please let us know even if it’s on the same day.
For those of you who have a bad memory here’s the video of last year’s event!
We hope to see everyone on the 12th of May!
