Team In Training, the world's largest endurance sports training program, provides personalized coaching, group training and support, and the chance to meet new people and be part of a team. In addition to weekly training sessions under the guidance of a certified coach, TNT offers training events and clinics on nutrition, equipment, injury prevention and safety. After four to five months of training, team members will be prepared to run or walk a marathon (26.2 miles or 13.1 miles), cycle a century ride (100 miles) or participate in a triathlon (swim, bike, run).
Participants are also given advice and ideas on how to meet their fundraising goals. The Society arranges airfare and lodging to send participants and their teammates to the event of their choice.
Since Team In Training began in 1988, more than 265,000 participants have raised over $600 million through TNT to help the Society advance its mission: to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Last year, TNT reached its national goal of training over 31,000 athletes and raising over $82 million-locally, we met our goal to train over 1,000 athletes and raise nearly $3 million.

Changing Lives...One Mile at a Time!
Hi my name is Ramon and I live in Rancho Santa Margarita Ca. I am a newbie to these events. I have played sports (football, baseball, MMA) my whole life, but I have always wanted to compete in a marathon, and a triathlon. I am looking for a team or a partners that i can train with so i can participate in these events and hopefully raise some money for people that need it more than me.
