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. [gravityform id=5 name=CTERmanRegistration description=false] 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.

I grew up in New York and lived there for 34 years until I got divorced and moved 1600 miles to my new home in Texas.  I love New York and miss it but that does not mean that Texas hasn’t been great to me because it has.  It was here that I discovered endurance sports and specifically the sport of triathlon.  Triathlon has given me new life through all the challenges it presents.  I no longer look at life the same way and I can say that is in part due to my endeavor into this sport.
