Take on Jenson Button in 2 triathlons on 1 day. Former F1 World Champion and current Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Driver Jenson Button is hosting his triathlon in aid of The Jenson Button Trust. A keen triathlete, Jenson has brought together two of his passions in what will prove a fun yet no doubt, highly competitive race.
Not only will you have the chance to take part in an eliminator format, you will also get the chance to race against Jenson Button. Post-race there will be live music, a barbeque and prizes will be presented by Jenson.
Jenson Button has announced that there will be a total prize fund of £7,000 for his triathlon.
Jenson said: “I am delighted to announce that the prize fund has increased to £7,000 for this year’s triathlon. We felt it was important to have decent prize money on offer to attract elite athletes, as well as those starting out in triathlon. Entry is open and the spots are filling fast, so you need to be quick if you want to secure your place!”
The winners of the men’s and women’s categories will each take home £2,000, second place will be awarded £1,000 and third £500, a total increase of £4,900 on last year’s event.
