One of the largest triathlons in the United States, the Nation’s Triathlon To Benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), has introduced a new Corporate Team Challenge for the 2012 race. The LLS Corporate Team Challenge celebrates teamwork and partnership as groups will work together for event weekend incentives and to support the work of LLS. Registered race participants and companies are invited to sign up for the program before the 31 August deadline.
The international distance triathlon taking place on Sunday 9 September 2012 in the nation’s capital features a 1.5K swim in the Potomac River, a 40K bike course through downtown DC, and a 10K run along Washington, DC’s monumental corridor and other historical landmarks. The Nation’s Triathlon has grown from a competition with less than 500 finishers in 2006 to being recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest international distance triathlon event in the US.
The LLS Corporate Team Challenge is designed for companies and their employees to come together in a camaraderie-filled environment and support a life-saving cause. Companies can register three or more employees to participate in a team. Company donation levels are determined by the number of participants on the team and awards will be given to the top three sponsored teams and the top three fastest teams.
Event weekend incentives for those participating in the challenge include recognition on the LLS Corporate Team Challenge webpage, a meet and greet reception with Dave Scott, six-time Ironman World Champion, and national triathlon coach for LLS’s Team In Training, on the Saturday of event weekend, and a team photo at the host hotel.
Additionally, teams will have access to the hospitality tent on race day and post-event services provided by physical therapists from Jackson Clinics. Teams of five or more participants will receive two company invitations to the VIP Top Fundraiser Reception on Friday night of event weekend.
Teams can register by contacting Martin McNutt at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society at martin.mcnutt[at]lls.org or view further information at www.nationstri.com/lls.html.
