If you are one of the six people selected, you’ll receive a bike, uniform, wetsuit, personal training and nutrition coaching, two all-expenses-paid training trips, and a chance to train and compete alongside Dr. Sanjay Gupta at the 2012 Nautica Malibu Triathlon.
Applicants should be new to the sport of triathlon, and will be expected to blog and use social media regularly throughout their journey. All participants will be required to get doctor’s clearance before taking part in the Challenge. Only entries from the U.S. will be considered.
