David Lloyd Aberdeen is challenging both members and non-members to take part in a special fundraising challenge this October
The Swim, Ride, Run Challenge is in aid of the British Heart Foundation, David Lloyd’s chosen charity. The Swim, Ride, Run Challenge is a triathlon that can be completed in stages over 31 days, rather than in one go. It’s a great way to improve your fitness and help power the British Heart Foundation’s life-saving heart research.
If you decide to take part, but you’re not a club member, you can register online and will be given a special temporary membership that allows access to the facilities on Tuesdays and Thursdays at your first session.
Whether this is the first triathlon you’ve taken on or you’re a seasoned pro, you have 31 days to complete it whenever you want, in a way that’s a challenge for you. The challenge offers four different distance options, the shortest being the Sprint Triathlon which involves swimming 750 metres, cycling 20km and running 5km. You could also choose the Olympic Triathlon or Half Triathlon formats, or, if you’re keen, there’s the Full Triathlon, which is a 3.8km swim, 180km bike ride and a 42.195km run.
You can take part on your own, with friends, co-workers or with your family – however you choose to complete it, you’ll be raising money for an excellent cause. David Lloyd’s friendly, experienced staff are always happy to help and provide guidance about how to break your Swim Run Ride into achievable chunks and help with motivation. The cycling studio, 25 metre pool and state of the art treadmills will all help you achieve your goal.
