GroundhogMan Virtual Triathlon: Train, Eat, Sleep, Repeat

It's your race and your pace! Challenge yourself to finish an 'Ironman or Double Ironman' distance race with your teammates during the month of February.

It’s the off season, Why?

  • It’s a fun way to pass the doldrums of winter
  • To connect with your teammates and reach a big goal
  • Fantastic prizes!!!
  • Post-race party on Leap Day, February 29th

OK, I’m in…now what?

1.  CREATE: A profile on Strava [it’s free]

2.  JOIN: Our Ann Arbor Triathlon Club Strava Group.

3.  CONSIDER: GIVING to Karen's Trail - it's your cheapest race fee of 2020!

4.  GET AT IT! Post workouts on Strava between FEB 1-29 that add up to an Ironman!

I need more details...How does the Virtual Tri really work?

  • It’s free or we are asking for donations to Karen’s Trail [Border to Border Trail] to help finish the stretch from Dexter to Ann Arbor.
  • Workouts are at your pace and at any location: indoors or outdoors, in the US or outside the US, real world or virtual world.
  • All swimming, biking, running counts!
  • Upload workouts to Strava using any device OR upload a manual workout if you aren’t using them [it’s the honor system...keep track]. Look for kudos & support from your teammates on Strava.
  • Kudos for:

    • Those who #AATriClubGroundhogMan in their Strava posts.
    • Extra Kudos for using Karen’s Trail or B2B trail, posting photos, & creative workout titles!
