THE ENDURAFIT TEAM CHALLENGE
The Team Challenge is a competition designed for clubs looking for their first team event of the season. The Team Challenge is comprised of the following 3 competitive events:
- The Marathon Sports Campus Dash (2.8 mile run)
- The FastSplits Indoor Bike Time Trial (a 10k TT)
- The Relay Team Swim Challenge (4 x 200 yard relay)
Register your team for the Team Challenge and you'll be entering a team of 4 into each of these competitive events... teams may enter the same 4 members in all 3 competitive events or up to 12 different members (i.e. 4 different people in each of the 3 competitive events). All four members run the 2.8 miles in the Marathon Sports Campus Dash, ride the 10k time trial course on their bikes affixed to CompuTrainers and swim a leg in the 4 x 200 yard relay.
The times of each individual member in an event is combined to form a Team Time. The Team Time from all three individual events will then be combined to form an Overall Team Time... the team with the fastest Overall Team Time will be crowned the Team Challenge Champion! EnduraFit, title sponsor of the Team Challenge, will provide all kinds of prizes to members of the top three teams in the Team Challenge including back packs, arm warmers, cinch sack bags and more. Other prizes to be announced, too! The Team Challenge has sold out the last two years... register your team soon so you won't miss out!
