Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
On the 21st December 2017 I was delightfully informed by the British Triathlon Organisation that I have qualified for the 2018 Ibiza Aquathlon European Championships, this is to take place on 24th October 2018 in San Antonio Ibiza, it is a Team GB Age-Group Race and I will be racing for a medal!!!!!
The Aquathlon Race consists of a 1K Swim followed by a 5K run.
Just for a background I am a member of Harlow Tri Club formed in Dec 2016 and although 2018 see's our second year in Racing our club is going from strength to strength with lots of great results, the club are based in the British Triathlon Eastern Region League and we finished 11th out of 54 clubs and I myself finished 6th out of 68 in my age group 50-54 women for the year 2017.
The 2017 season I competed in 5 Aquathlons and another 5 Triathlons at various distances finishing 1st in my age group on 6 occasions and 2nd on another!
I am dedicated to achieving the best result I can in Ibiza... so only a short time now before the new season is underway so my training regime is now in full swing leading upto the race! I am a member of my local Leisure Centre and use their facilities to do my swimming training which is at least 3 times a week, I've also swam all through the winter at a local Lake in very low temperatures the lowest being 1.7 degrees, this builds great physical and mental training, my other training regime consists of spinning sessions through the winter with the dark nights, I also attend lots of other classes to build my strength with weight training and stamina, and of course pounding the streets with my running and cross country races which gives me all round fitness in order to acheive my dream goals!
In order for me to participate in this Race I will need to fund everything myself which is proving a costly affair, lots to sort out including Flights, Hotels, Race Cost, Insurances and all this before the GB kit itself so I’ve put some costings together to give an idea!
Flights £200 Accommodation £350 Race Entry £70 GB Kit consists of Tri Suit Personalized £160, GB Swim Hat £8, Customized Team GB Polo Shirt £50, Customized Team GB Track Top £90, Insurance £72 ....... so total is approx £1000
Any offers and donations however small made to me to reach my £1000 will be absolutely greatfully received, thank you all for taking the time to read my page! Gail X
