TEAM TRUE SPIRIT EVENTS

 

Team True Spirit is the Help for Heroes beneficiaries’ challenge team. We aim to inspire, enable and support you to do something amazing.

The team participates in all kinds of challenges including walking, running, swimming, cycling, triathlon and mountain biking. Whatever the challenge, we’ll provide you with a comprehensive training programme and all the advice you need.

Perhaps you want to complete a couch to 5km, a triathlon or even take part in an Ironman competition. Or walk the Yorkshire Three Peaks or Hadrian’s Wall. Whatever your goal, we will have something for you.

Regular training weekends cover all challenges with some of the UK’s top coaches to guide you along the way. Training weekends include plenty of physical activity as well as talks on nutrition, core training and strength and conditioning.
