This is our primary function. Fund Her Tri pays for the race registration fees of first-time, female triathletes of any age.
We accept applications for Olympic distance events and shorter. Sponsorship is only available for races within the United States & Guam, up to $150. Fund Her Tri does not cover the cost of a USAT License.
When an athlete applies for sponsorship, we reach out to the race that they would like to do and request to pay them in exchange for a code the applicant can use to register for the race.
While we do team up with races/event companies for mutual promotion & support we do not limit sponsorship to those races; prospective triathletes can apply for sponsorship for ANY race within the U.S. & Guam.
We also offer “direct-sponsorship” where someone pays for the race registration of a first-timer, one for one. We let them know the cost of the race and they donate that amount, earmarked for a particular person or event.
Rise & TRI Mentor Program
The purpose of this program is to help new triathletes have a positive triathlon experience & to foster an uplifting & supportive community.
This program is free & pairs experienced (3 years or more of triathlon experience) triathletes with beginners (>3 years of experience) for the purpose of answering questions & sharing resources.
Each round runs for 3-5 months, leading up to the mentee’s goal race.
Rise & TRI is a way for triathletes to give back to their sport by volunteering their time & sharing their past experiences.
For new triathletes, having someone to bounce questions off of can be the difference between doing 1 race or doing 100.
