The Defy This event http://defythisindoorultratri.com was originally thought of because the cost of triathlons had recently sky rocketed and sold out due to high popularity. Keeping the event indoors drastically reduced the need for outside expenses. Upon further research the founders of Tri Anything Sports- Ayala, DeVito, and Krauss realized that no female in history had attempted to complete an indoor race of this distance. All three women hope to raise awareness that anything is possible through determination and creativity.
The Indoor Ultra Tri is a special event designed around the athletes desire for affordability and fierce competition. At the Indoor Ultra Tri, competitors will complete a 2.4 mile pool swim in a 25 yard pool, 112 mile ride on provided spin bikes, and a 26.2 mile run on a treadmill. Although the Indoor Ultra Tri is Ironman distance, it is not part of the official Ironman series.
While traditional Ironman triathlons are completed on an outdoor course, the Ultra Tri is held entirely indoors making it a true test of mental strength. Competitors will have the option of competing the race as an individual, or in relay teams of 2,3, or 6 people.
Our goals for hosting this race are to provide a challenging race in a comfortable, affordable environment while raising money for charitable organizations. Complete with live entertainment, music, awesome sponsors, great give-a-ways, and more, this event promises to be one to Defy and remember.
