"I've been talking about hosting my own Triathlon for a while now and am delighted it's finally happening with the Jenson Button Trust Triathlon. I've been lucky enough to punish myself in triathlons around the world and it's become a big part of my life and the perfect way to train for F1. I wanted to put on something different and give competitors more of a unique experience, which with the format and the venue I'm confident we'll achieve. It's also a great chance for everyone taking part to team up and help raise some money for a fantastic charity in Help For Heroes, we've set it up so everyone can fund raise together and there will even be some amazing prizes for the top fundraisers including a VIP trip to the Monaco Grand Prix in 2013 for the person who raises the most money! Look forward to seeing everyone on the day for what will be a great event."
