Ironman is a triathlon event.
More details here https://www.ironman.com/im703-goa
This year the event is on 8th, October in Goa.
For the corporate relay team, minimum two or three members needed to finish a 1.9km swim, 90km ride and 21km run.
Any swimmer or cyclists keen to tag along? I can do the run segment
If you’ve been thinking to pick up swimming this summer or get a new bike, this could be a good reason
Yay we have a team
For individual open category, anyone can signup. They have to do all the three sport.
For team relay, min two and max three members. If there are two members, one person will have to do two sport. If it’s three members, each have to do one sport.
Add your name below with the sport you are strong with
We can form teams depending on the sequence.
I needed a reason to focus on swimming; this one seems like it. I will probably attempt to do a solo. Swimming and cycling will be easy; running will be tough due to my knees.
@Sagar_Gudekote why don’t you post on Inside. We might find a bunch for the relay.
I can cycle, but I cannot swim, nor run that far yet :') I am up for the team relay.
Folks, I’ve reached out to the organisers to get more clarity on the relay team structure.
Will post back soon.
Here is some general info received from the organisers. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BzyDqXrNgNsWZSCVFm79rBL_IPCXMlc4/view?usp=sharing
Pls share the thread with other Zerodha colleagues to get more attention
We can field more than one team for the competition.
Heard back from the organisers.
Min two and max three members can participate as relay team. That’s confirmed.
Which means one athlete has to finish any two activities
