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.
Coaches Alliance (this program is not active for 2022)
The purpose of this program is to keep women in the sport of triathlon. We are teaming up with Coaches to help bring awareness to just how valuable they are.
Having a coach is an absolute game-changer, but it is also an investment. Our goal is to help athletes see the value in having a coach & increase their willingness to make the investment.
Coaches not only help triathletes balance training with family, work, school, etc. & reach their athletic goals, but they can have a profound effect on things such as fear of open water swimming, etc.
Coaches are required to make an annual donation of $75 to FHT, in exchange for positive exposure & advertising.
Ambassadors (this program is not active for 2022)
The purpose of this program is to provide an opportunity for triathletes to get involved in the FHT mission.
Ambassadors fund-raise & help spread awareness for FHT in their multisport communities. The funds raised go toward paying for first-timers to race so by being a part of this program, triathletes are giving back to triathletes & triathlon.
This is not a triathlon team, but racing for something bigger than yourself is a wonderful thing and we want for women who have been changed by triathlon to have a community to be a part of.
This program also provides access to discounted custom Fund Her Tri custom tri gear, but it is not required to purchase.
The fundraising minimum is $100 & applications open twice per year (January & July) on the Fund Her Tri website.
