Sponge Race Team Is Recruiting Triathletes For 2018 After Establishing Itself As The World’s First Triathlon Charity Race Team Of Its Kind.

Following a successful inaugural season, Sponge Race Team, the unique #TRIFORGOOD charity race team, is proud to announce that it is looking for two new members to join it’s high-performance triathlon team.

Having been fully supported by 11 sponsors (Cervélo, Huub, Craft, On Running, CurraNZ, Superfeet, GU, Kitbrix, ERDINGER, Fizik and Bollé), the last eight months has seen the team raise a total of £1,049.55, which will be divided between the chosen charities Triathlon Trust, Arctic One and Build a Pool for Nevis.

Results wise, team members secured podium and top-5 age group finishes in Kona, first place finishers across many of the Challenge Family races worldwide, and they even have a world champion in their squad – with Georgie Rutherford claiming the OceanWoman 5.5km Open Water Swim Championship.

The team, headed by 2016 IRONMAN Age Group World Champion, Jane Hansom, aims to promote and elevate triathlon in the world of sport. “It’s been an incredible eight months,” she says. “The teams’ results have exceeded expectations and I’m extremely proud of each and every member of our squad – however we can grow. Next year we want to deliver even more money for charity, and to that, we need more team members ”

So what are the team looking for?

“A love of competing in amateur triathlons is an obvious must” continues Jane. “We are looking for athletes who also have a keen interest in sports marketing and know how to handle themselves on social media. However the charity element of our team is perhaps the most important goal, so having a passion for the broader world of triathlon and wanting to give back to the sport they love is crucial”
