Following a successful partnership in 2015 (which last year included a charity face-off between celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and Huub founder Dean Jackson), apparel and wetsuit specialist Huub has confirmed it is supporting the Gordon & Tana Ramsay Foundation in 2016.
Also supported by UK coaching specialist, Precision Coaching, Gordon and Tana Ramsay’s Foundation charity team – GR100 – will once again be racing the sold-out IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire, on 12 June 2016, whilst raising much-needed funds for charity.
The GTR100 team is now looking for team members for the 2016 event. Those taking part with Gordon and Tana Ramsay at IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire in June will help to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital in London.
With only 100 places available on the team, a £1200 membership fee applies. This includes over £2000 of kit, bespoke training, ‘money can’t buy access to professional athletes’ and special events leading up to the day itself including:
- Three dedicated training days with personal training and tips from Huub athletes: Olympic Champion Alistair Brownlee, Olympic Bronze Medallist Jonny Brownlee, 2013 IRONMAN World Champion Frederik Van Lierde and Olympian Richard Varga – ‘the fastest swimmer in triathlon’.
- Coaching from Cassie Patten, Olympic Bronze Medallist 10000m Open Water 2008.
- Top of the range HUUB Archimedes II Wetsuit.
- Muscloskeletal screening from the lead Team GB Athletics Physiotherapist, John Allen
- Bespoke GTR100 training programme from Precision Coaching
All participants will also receive… ‘discounts to cover off everything triathlon related at award winning and leading retailers, continual support via forums and direct contact from some of the country’s most prolific and experienced triathlon experts, continual fund raising support from Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital and of course be treated to a special team post-race reception.’
In return for the above, the GR100 team simply asks that team members raise at least £2500 towards the charity.
