Spirit of the Triathlon?

29 Jun

Would you like to see a feature-length documentary on the inspiring journeys of six athletes preparing for Challenge Roth?

Challenge Roth Triathlon Documentary Indiegogo from triathlonfilm on Vimeo.

I know I would, as I loved Spirit of the Marathon, which is made by the team behind this venture. They’re attempting to crowd-source funding for it, and released some information within the last fortnight. This website gives more details: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/challenge-roth-triathlon-documentary

triathlete magazine interviewed the film’s producer Gwendolen Twist: http://triathlon.competitor.com/2014/06/news/dispatch-triathlon-heads-big-screen_101010

I don’t know how much funding is really required to make this a reality, but I hope it takes place.

    That is a really fantastic race that is pretty well-known. Referring back to “Spirit of the Marathon”, I’m not sure it’s as well-known as the Chicago Marathon, but I’m willing to bet that they might receive a good amount of funding from Roth. Or at least I hope they do. 😉

      I hope so too. In Europe, it’s one of the biggest sporting events and triathlon is currently booming here, so I’m hoping a few more people dig deep… and as you suggested, there’s a good chance that Challenge will put some money into it as it’s good publicity for them.
