Race for a Million – virtual triathlon

May 01 @ 12:00 £15

Your hospital needs you to get moving

Sign up for Race for A Million today and get training to run, cycle and swim to raise money  and help fund vital new recovery facilities in University Hospital Southampton’s Intensive Care Unit.

If you’ve never tried a triathlon, then this is your opportunity to give it a go. Split the disciplines up over a number of days or try some of the shorter events.

It’s totally flexible and only £15 to enter.

It’s all about the bling!

Everyone who takes part will get an exclusive Race for a Million medal.

What about swimming?

We know swimming is tough at the moment, so we’re mixing it up a bit and if pools aren’t available you can sub the swimming part out for a special circuit training session that we’ve created just for this event.

When can I do it?

The event itself is entirely online and is happening throughout May 2021, so you choose when you want to do it and how you want to. All at the same time or with days in between each session it’s up to you.

Race for a million

Compete in a virtual triathlon where you choose how you race

The event will take place online throughout May and all you need to do is register to run, cycle and swim, individually or as a team, and record your time on our online platform. There are lots of options from Olympic distances to much shorter challenges suitable for all the family.

This (not so usual) race is so easy to sign up to

This isn’t your typical triathlon it’s totally flexible, accessible and open to anyone – no matter if you’re an olympic athlete, or an absolute beginner, who never got picked for the sports team.

Compete on your own or join in as a team. Set the best time you can across three sporting disciplines. Pick from cycling, running, swimming (or rowing) and choose a course length.

Take part anywhere in the UK using our online race platform

You can even tackle the challenge in one go or over the course of the month of May. The more money you raise through sponsorship, the closer we are to funding the facilities people need to recover quicker from critical illness.
