If you are looking for a completely fun and free triathlon challenge (like all of the amateur athletes below) visit our B-Fit B-Day Challenge for a truly unique and super fun way to celebrate your health fitness and B-Day.
Why not swim, bike, and run your age.
The B-Fit B-Day Challenge is a celebration of your life, health, and fitness on your birthday.
1) Swim the number of yards in the first number(# multiplied by 1000 yards), 2) Run the number of miles in the second number, 3) Bike the number of miles in the combined number.
So a 45-year-old athlete would:
1) Swim 4000 yards 2) Run 5 miles 3 ) Bike 45 miles
If you choose to accept the B-Fit B-Day Challenge you must....
Bronze: Do all three (swim/bike/run) during the week of your Birthday. Silver: Do all three (swim/bike/run) in the three days before, after, or on your B-Day. Gold: Do all three (swim/bike/run) in 24-hours to celebrate your B-Day! Platinum: Do all three in miles (swim first number in miles not yards/bike/run) in 24-hours to celebrate your B-Day!
Over 200 athletes have already taken the Challenge. Here are just a few of the 2008 age group records.
