CTERman Virtual Event Registration Is Now Open

If you have been a follower of this blog for a while then you will recall the Cupcake Marathon from last year.  The turnout was great and I was able to get quite a few sponsors for the event and I am here to announce a new virtual race.  The CTERman is going to be a virtual event that will have both triathlon and duathlon events and lots of giveaways.

This virtual race is not just to keep you moving during the winter months and prepare you for the upcoming early triathlon season.  This year the virtual race will be a fund-raiser for Shape Up America.

I partnered with Shape Up America last year to help raise funds for the non-profit which is committed to raising awareness of obesity as a health issue and to providing responsible information on healthy weight management.  As a person who believes that the health of America is jeopardized it is a welcome sight to see an organization take on such a personal subject and try to help.

Now is your chance to try to help as well.  Your donation will go directly to Shape Up America and enter you into the distance of your choice as well as an opportunity to win a prize from one of our great sponsors.

Here are the rules:

  1. Enter the virtual race by making a donation to Shape Up America through the Help Raise Funds link in the right hand sidebar.  The cost of entry into the race is $10 for the Iron distance triathlon and duathlon (minus the swim) and $5 for the Half-Iron distance triathlon and duathlon (minus the swim.)
  2. After you receive your receipt from PayPal take a screen shot and submit it through form below.
  3. Once I receive your registration form I will email you the tracking form which will be submitted via the Contact Me form.

The gifts I have been able to arrange thus far are:

The event will start on February 13th and will end at 12am PST on March 11th.  This virtual race is open to those in the continental United States for all prizes.  Some prizes can be shipped to Canada but not all.  All prizes will be chosen through Random.org

Special prizes will be sent to those that finish their event first.  Please note that is first and not the fastest.

Lastly, I am working on adding more prizes and a logo for the event.  Once the logo is complete there will be an opportunity to purchase shirts from Family Fan Club with a portion of the proceeds going to Shape Up America.

Please feel free to tweet out this event using the hashtag #CTERman to get others to register as well as when you are completing events for the race you enter.  Post it to Facebook or anywhere else you have access to people as the more people that register the more money we raise for Shape Up America.


Thank you in advance for participating in this event.

    So if I understand this correctly, I make my $10 donation and then complete 2.4 mi of swimming (not necessarily all at the same time – I can break it up into different sessions, right?), 112 mi of biking (again – breaking up as my fitness requires) and 26.2 mi of running (or jog/walking 3-5 miles at a time is ok) and I can enter to win prizes. No cutoff times and nothing that has to be sweated out all in one day, correct?

    I was all ready to enter and then remembered, I have no way to track miles on my bike. It’s on the trainer and all my sessions are by time. BUMMER I’ll play along in my own head though and will add $10 to my upcoming donation for your ironman. ;-) I’m not IN but I’m IN???

    HMMMMMM. I like this idea but whenever I sign up for these things I get broken. I’m going to “think” for a few days and see what my legs say. :)

    • CTER says:

      you are not allowed to break. CdA is far to important but the best part of this one is that you are doing the workouts already so log them where ever you log them and then log them on the spreadsheet I send and you are done. It is not about speed or anything but getting the workouts in that you are already getting in.

    Just signed up. I’m looking forward to the kick in the pants. I’ll be out of town for 4 days, but I played with some numbers and should be able to complete this before the cutoff. Nothing like setting a big hairy ass goal to kick training into gear!
