Athy Tri Club - Charity Fundraising - Ironman Barca 2018


Goal : €25000
From 86 fantastic supporters

Tri-ing to make a difference.

22 members of Athy Triathlon Club will take on the challenge of training for and completing IRONMAN Barcelona 2018 - In aid of our chosen charities:

Peter McVerry Trust
Mental Health Ireland
Several local Athy Charities

The Ironman consists of a 3.8 Km swim, 180 Km cycle followed by a 42.2 Km marathon.  Only 5 members of the ATC Barca team have ever completed an Ironman previously, so for 17 it will be their first and biggest accomplishment.  For many it will be the ultimate sporting achievement of their lives, for others it’ll only inspire them to do more.  For all 22 it is an opportunity to be part of a collective desire to highlight and fundraise for a select number of chosen charities and great causes. 

The venue for this epic event will be Ironman Barcelona, held in Calella, Spain on Sunday 7th October. Click on the link across for more details of the event – Iron Man Barcelona 2018

Of the 100+ clubs from around the world participating in the event, Athy Triathlon Club will be the most represented. Quite an achievement in itself considering the club is only 6 years in existence and many of its members only started participating in triathlons in the last 2-3 years. To achieve our Barca goal each member of the team will need to commit to hundreds of hours and thousands of kilometres of training over the coming months but we will get there.

All 22 of our club members will be paying their own way and also hope to collectively raise Eur 25,000, with 100% of funds raised going to the above charities.  We hope to achieve this through a mix of both corporate and individual donations. 

We also want you to get to know our ATC Barca team members.   The guys and girls doing the hard miles in training, making the sacrifices and taking on the challenge.  Please click link here to get the background on all our athletes – ATC IRONMAN ATHLETE PROFILES and be sure to check out our ATC IRONMAN BARCA BLOG for updates on how the team is doing.
