What TNT is All About

Team In Training (TNT) is the world's largest endurance sports training program. The program provides training to run or walk a whole or half marathon or to participate in a triathlon, century (100-mile) bike ride or an all day adventure hike. Participants raise funds for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma research and patient services in exchange for training, support, lodging, and airfare to the event of their choice. Since TNT's inception in 1988, 500,000 participants have raised over $1 billion.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society helps fund research to find new treatments and cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, and provide critical education, services and support to patients and families battling these cancers. Their mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

In exchange for raising funds, participants receive: personalized fitness training by certified coaches for a period of four to five months; training clinics; and a supportive group of teammates. Participants can choose from more than 60 accredited events in the United States and abroad, including: The Nike Women's Marathon: A race to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in San Diego, CA; The LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon; Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C.; the Honolulu Marathon; St. Anthony's Triathlon in St. Petersburg, FL.; Triathlon at Pacific Grove in Pacific Grove, CA; America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride in Lake Tahoe, NV; EI Tour De Tucson; and many others
