Join the MERMAID POD!
Last year, over 65 Mermaids joined the "POD!" This year we are making it a little more challenging as we add one (BIG) event to the challenge.... The 2019 T9 Mermaid POD Challenge now includes the T9 Mermaid Triathlon & Duathlon Capitola. Going big in 2019!!
The Mermaid Series started with a Triathlon & Duathlon, so it's fitting that we NOW include the Tri & Du in the POD Challenge. For the POD challenge we will offer a "Virtual" option to the Tri & Du as well as offer POD athletes the option to do the Tri & DU as part of a relay. Virtually, you will have a week to Tri (swim, bike, run) or Du (run, bike, run) to complete the virtual race.
The Mermaid POD Challenge combines SIX T9 Mermaid events! Yup, that's San Diego, East Bay, Boulder, Spokane, Capitola and San Francisco!!
Can't attend each event in person, no problem.... Sign up for the "virtual" option and you'll still qualify to become a MERMAID POD member. Mermaids signing up for the POD Challenge will receive a 15% discount off the entry fee for each event.
Complete the challenge, become a POD member and receive a special MERMAID POD Medal & Necklace! Medals and necklaces can be picked up at the T9 Mermaid Run San Francisco, the last event of the challenge or if you are participating "virtually" in San Francisco we'll mail out your medals and necklaces with your virtual race packets.
Last year we had 10 Mermaids complete the challenge in person! If you complete the challenge in person you will receive a special edition MERMAID POD jacket and a FREE entry to the 2020 Mermaid POD Challenge.
