For some of us, competing on our chosen leg of the Get Companies Active triathlon is going to be a walk in the park. But for the majority of us, there’s going to be a mountain to climb before the big event itself as we train hard to get ourselves in shape to take on what may seem to some as a gruelling endurance trial.
Rest assured, we’ve created the triathlon course to be novice friendly, but still hard enough that those that show up without having trained are likely to struggle.
After all, that’s the whole point, getting companies and staff active to improve fitness, and improve lives, providing enough of a challenge for participants to think "Oh God, why did I sign up for this?!", but achievable with effort, making it oh-so-sweeter when people cross those finish lines.
Here’s just a few of the many stories that show guts and determination in the lead up to October 8th, and we look forward to hearing about your own story!
