World’s Strongest Boys Triathlon 2017 – 17 September

September 17

Duchenne UK is proud to be the title partner of the Duchenne UK Triathlon. Our aim is simple – to find treatments and a cure for children suffering with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a muscle wasting disease. It’s the most common genetic killer of children, and most won’t live past their twenties. We believe that despite their weakening muscles these children are anything but weak – they are the World’s Strongest Boys. Join our team to use your muscles to help those whose muscles are weakening.

We are looking for teams or individuals to take part in the World’s Strongest Boys Triathlon next September.

Use your strength and determination to save the World’s Strongest Boys.

Triathlon is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. It offers variety, testing a combination of three different disciplines – swimming, cycling and running.

Event information

Our triathlon is held at Eton Dornay lake in Berkshire, an iconic venue from the 2012 Olympics, ideal for both first timers, and more experienced athletes. Start with a swim in the clear clean waters of the lake, before cycling the car free flat road circuit and then a final run along tarmac woodland paths.

You can choose to do a FULL triathlon, at Olympic or Sprint distance. Or you can form teams, and participate in one or more stage, in RELAY form.

Corporate Team Challenge

Duchenne UK’s triathlon is the perfect event to incorporate your company’s health, wellbeing and Corporate Social Responsibility strategy by engaging your staff in a global fitness movement that encourages people to use their muscles to help boys losing theirs.

Triathlon is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. It offers variety, testing a combination of three different disciplines – swimming, cycling and running. The chances are your employees will be capable in at least one area – and they can opt for a relay option if they prefer. Most of all, whilst triathlons are demanding, they’re also more accessible, than, say the Marathon, and they’re a great opportunity for team building and improving the health and fitness of your staff.

Your company enters a team of 10+ people. Your company is invited to make a donation, but this is not obligatory. Each entrant will be asked to pay an entry fee of £50 per person.

Each team member is encouraged to raise a minimum of between £500 – £1,000 per person, to join the movement and help save the World’s Strongest Boys. Participants can either do a full Olympic or Sprint Triathlon – or break it up into relay teams. We will support them with providing branded kit, fundraising tips and other materials to help them.

To discuss entering Duchenne UK’s Triathlon as a corporate team please contact Molly at Duchenne UK.
