The Challenge

This July join hundreds of people across the country as they attempt to prove their Will of Iron.

The only event of its kind, Will of Iron can form part of your training for something bigger or be a stepping stone to your first triathlon.

You can take part as an individual or as a team. At the gym or outdoors. Your team can be as large or as small as you like. Divide the triathlon by discipline or by distance. The only rule is that you need to complete your challenge over seven consecutive days.

It costs just £25 to register to take part. So, what are you waiting for?

We think it’s an incredible challenge and we know it can be tough. Finding some (or lots) of team members should help lighten the load but you can also do half the distance, too: 1.2 mile swim, a 56 mile cycle and a 13.1 mile run.

Choose your Will of Iron week. This year Will of Iron is taking place throughout July so you can pick a start and end date to suit you. Sign up now and enter your start date on the registration form or email Carol on willofiron@willowfoundation.org.uk to tell us about your plans.

Willow is the only UK charity providing Special Days for seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds. Right now there are 100,000 people in the UK whose lives could be transformed by a Special Day, creating lasting memories that will be treasured forever.
