DaddyHood Dadathlon is a celebration of the movement to create more opportunities for fathers to spend active time with their children.
What is it about?
It is a one-of-a-kind event that consists of a group of three races covering three different sports disciplines, each taking place at a different time during the year. The unique thing about this sports event is that participants are fathers and their children (one or more!).
The different events are:
17-24/ 4: Running with kids (strollers allowed)
20-27/6: Cycling with kids (bike trailers or a child seat allowed)
19-26/9: Trekking with kids (carrier backpack allowed)
The 2021 edition will be held virtually and to allow flexibility to participants, each event will be open for participation during one whole week.
Who is it for?
The races are conceived for individual teams (one father with his child/ren). It is possible to team up with other fathers and their children, to motivate each other and have even more fun, but each team member will have to complete the full distance of the race.
How it works?
Participants can choose to take part in only one or two races, but to complete the full DaddyHood Dadathlon, they will need to compete in all three races/disciplines.
There are three different distance levels at which participants can compete, depending on their capabilities and ambitions:
- Bronze level – Running 3k, Cycling 7 k, hiking 2 k
- Silver level – Running 7k, cycling 15k, hiking 5 k
- Gold level – Running 15k, cycling 30k, hiking 10.
The main goal is to complete the chosen level in each of the races, while bonding and having fun. There will be a leader board available to track the times but the prizes will be awarded to the team who will make the most attractive and most inspiring pictures or videos and post them online, tagging @daddyhoodeurope #DaddyHoodDadathlon.
We understand childrens’ needs. It is allowed to stop your tracking device to take a break – keep in mind that your and the comfort of your kids is the most important.
You have babies or toddlers?
To make sure you and your child are safe during the race, use strollers for running, a bicycle child seat or bike trailers for cycling and a carrier backpack for hiking.
