Danskin Triathlon Series [Giveaway]
**This giveaway is now closed. Thank you to everyone that entered!**
I’ve got something exciting to share with you today…and I’m actually really jealous because I won’t be able to participate.
I was recently contacted by the Danskin Triathlon Series to check out information about their races.
The Danskin Triathlon Series has 8 sprint distance triathlons throughout the country. A sprint triathlon consists a 1/2 mile swim, 12 mile bike, and a 3 mile run! These triathlons are for females only and the series is actually the country’s largest for women and girls in the sport!
Danskin Triathlon Series has a great mentality: “women empowering other women”. How awesome is that?! And since these races are a sprint distance, they are completely friendly for triathlon novices. Of course, experienced athletes participate as well. So it sounds like a great meshing of novice and expert female athletes!
Another thing I learned, and that I really like about this series, is that they support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Team Survivor nationally. Additionally, they support a local food bank and women’s shelter in each of the race cities!
So, when and where are these races??
- May 13 – Clermont, FL (greater Orlando area)
- June 3 – Austin, TX
- July 22 – Webster, MA (greater Boston area)
- August 5 – Howell, MI
- August 19 – Seattle, WA
- August 26 – Chicagoland
- September 9 – Sandy Hook, NJ
- October 7 – Palm Springs, CA
I have always thought that it would be awesome to participate in a sprint distance triathlon (no way would I ever want to do a longer one haha). I enjoy biking, swimming, and running shorter distances and I think that combining all 3 would be a great and fun way to challenge myself!
Sadly, I won’t be able to participate in any of these events :(. I’ll be moving home at the end of May and none of these locations are near me…plus, with the internships I’ll be completing I won’t really be able to travel.
But, I have some awesome news. The Danskin Triathlon Series wants YOU to TRI something new. They are offering a complimentary entry to one of my readers!!!
