JENSON BUTTON TRUST
CANCER RESEARCH UK
The 2016 Jenson Button Trust Triathlon is set to be the biggest event to date with the capacity for double the amount of competitors as seen in previous years.
To be held in Markeaton Park, Derby on Sunday July 17th, competitors will get the chance to race against the 2009 Formula 1 World Champion and a number of amateur and professional Triathletes.
Keeping the same exciting format as adopted in previous years competitors will get the chance to race twice, with the preliminary heat consisting of a 200m lake swim, 10km cycle and 2.5km run. The fastest in the heats will then go on to the final, which is double the distance, 400m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run, with the runners up going through to the wooden spoon race.
Set up in March 2010, the Jenson Button Trust was established to allow Jenson to donate to a number of charitable causes and campaigns that were close to his heart, with the overall aim of giving as much help to as many as possible. The Trust runs a number of fundraising activities and events from the Jenson Button Trust Yacht in Monaco to the Jenson Button Trust Triathlon.
Now in its fourth year, the Jenson Button Trust Triathlon is a true family event. It includes not only
one of Britain's best triathlon competitions but also a buzzing event village with prizes presented by Jenson. For families and
spectators there will be a host of activities throughout the
park and live music in the
heart of the event village.
Whether you are an experienced triathlete or just up for the challenge it has something to offer everyone, not to mention getting to race an F1 World Champion and fundraising a huge amount for the Jenson Button Trust and affiliated charities.
The Jenson Button Trust aims to raise as much money as possible during it's partnership with Cancer Research UK. Our ambition is to fund pioneering work to help accelerate research and beat cancer sooner. Jenson Button and Cancer Research UK both believe we will beat cancer. The more research we do, the sooner that day will come
The Jenson Button Trust's Official Charity Partner for this year's event is Cancer Research UK and although their is no minimum fundraising target to enter, all participants are encouraged to join Jenson in raising money. We suggest a suitable fundraising goal of £200 or more and Jenson will reward the highest fundraisers with special prizes.
