Team in Training (TNT) is the world's largest endurance sports training program.
Since 1988, more than 540,000 volunteer participants
have raised over $1.2 billion for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
From the beginner to the seasoned pro, TNT offers the opportunity
to get fit, make memories, and; make a difference in the lives of others.
Members of TNT raise funds for blood cancer research and patient services as they train as a group to complete an endurance event in honor of a community member affected by leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma. Participants may choose to train for a variety of endurance events, such as a: Full Marathon - 26.2 miles (running or walking), a Half Marathon - 13.1 miles (running or walking), and even Triathlons (sprint & olympic)
The fundraising is suprisingly easy- you're raising money for an amazing cause, after all! You get your own fundraising website (Check out this sample), we help you with a letter-writing campaign, and TNT staff are pros at helping you put on an amazing event (from a yard sale to a wine tasting to a silent auction!)
The training is also very doable. Whether you're training on your own with TNT Flex, attending group trainings with our coaches, or doing a combination, you can acheive your goals. We'll give you a training schedule to follow- so you know exactly what to do each day to stay on track. Don't worry- there's even wiggle room built in to allow for life to interfere with your training plan! Our schedules are built with miles in mind- speed doesn't matter unless you want it to! So you can run, walk, or run/walk to get your training done and you'll be ready for race day! Coaches work with you in person, via email, and sometimes even through blogs.
The traveling is simple because when you train with TNT, we help coordinate everything! We'll coordinate the hotel rooms for each event, and in most cases your half of the room will be paid for by TNT. You will be able to room with a TNT roommate (for free) or just pay the 2nd half of the room to bring your family. We will take care of any race day transportation to make sure you get to the start line stress-free! For our far-away destinations, you can even get reimbursed for some or all of your flight as a fundraising incentive! So, what are you waiting for? Come train with the Team!
So yeah- it's hard work, but it's so worth it. You'll be amazed at the person you can become. And our patients will be so grateful you signed up. TNT is a life changing experience! Are you ready for it to change yours?
