FOUNDED IN 2007, TRI FOR LIFE HAS ONE SIMPLE AIM - TO USE THE SPORT OF TRIATHLON TO RAISE MONEY FOR SOME FANTASTIC CAUSES.
Since the first event at Dorney Lake, Eton with just 200 participants, through to hosting thousands more at Woburn
Abbey, tri for life has been part of one of the UK’s largest triathlons.
Over £2.5 million has been raised for many charities including Great Ormond Street Hospital, Teenage Cancer Trust, Whizz Kidz, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Rays of Sunshine.
As from 2022, The Woburn Abbey Triathlon became the sixth event in the Outlaw Series in conjunction with tri for life becoming the headline charity partner across Outlaw events. It’s a true “win-win” where the Woburn Abbey Triathlon can grow and develop as an event, with tri for life being able to leverage the Outlaw platform to support many more charities over the years to come.
HOW WE'RE CHANGING LIVES
In 2022, tri for life are proud to be supporting a variety of charities. As well as selecting a few smaller lesser well known charities, we will be supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital, Alzheimer’s Research UK & Cancer Research UK. Each are incredible charities that are having an indelible impact on the lives of thousands of people.
Every day brings new challenges at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Every day, around 600 seriously ill children arrive at GOSH from all over the UK for life-changing treatments.
Every day, young lives hang in the balance as patients, families and staff battle the most complex illnesses. Every day, the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs that change the lives of thousands of children – and change the world.
Despite the greatest challenges a child can face, the hospital is a place where being sick does not always mean being sad. And it’s a place where you’ll find – today and every day – some of the bravest people you could ever meet.
This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support, and every day is a chance for you to make a difference.
Almost one million people in the UK are living with a form of dementia. This number is rapidly increasing and without effective treatments, one in three people born today will die with dementia. There is currently no cure, but research can change this. Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity, dedicated to causes, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure.
Cancer Research UK is the world's leading independent charity dedicated to cancer research. They carry out scientific research to help prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and have discovered new ways to beat cancer that together have saved hundreds of thousands of lives across the world.
In 2022, tri for life became the headline charity of the Outlaw Triathlon Series. This partnership allows tri for life to support many more good causes through athlete participation in this award-winning series. Outlaw was launched in 2010 and now has six high-quality events at stunning locations across Britain.
