Tri To Help is a National Indoor Triathlon at several locations which offers an off-season Sprint distance triathlon and the worlds first indoor triathlon TEAM RELAY! Seasoned triathletes and first-timers compete to raise the most sponsors for this worthy cause which funds epilepsy research for the Johns Hopkins Epilepsy Center. To sign up for a triathlon, you don't have to raise funds, but it is the backbone to the success of what we raise!
The event is in its ninth year and has been hosted in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Arizona, Virginia, and Washington DC. We are marketing this event like "Race For The Cure" for epilepsy with hopes to expand each year.
The Tri To Help indoor triathlon has four or eight participants per heat based on the host club availability of pool lanes, bikes and treadmills. The course consists of the following disciplines:
10-minute swim in lap pool
10-minute Transition (T1- swim to bike)
30-minute bike (stationary or spin bike)
5-minute Transition (T2 - bike to run)
20-minute treadmill run
