In collaboration with Super League Triathlon (SLT), Stakester is hosting the virtual triathlon competition “The Golden Gilet” to raise funds for Cool Earth. According to Stakester Founder & CEO Tom Fairey, “Stakester is all about competition – we pit gamers against each other to win cash and prizes. But backing yourself also encourages people to excel, innovate and fight to be the best they can be.”

The Golden Gilet aims to provide VCs a fun competition, while also giving back to our planet through Cool Earth and their climate initiatives. Each team will aim to burn the most calories in a week by stepping up their physical activity in this intense and fierce race to the top. There will be two rounds and the teams with the highest average score pro-rata will go through to the final at the London Aquatic Centre at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, London, on 23 April.

They’ll have an hour to cover as much distance as possible by cycling, running and swimming. The winning team will receive a Golden Gilet as a prize in a cheeky reference to the casual attire of choice for many VCs (along with fleeces and quilted waxed jackets).

The suggested donation for each VC participating in the Golden Gilet is £1,000 (approximately $1,371).
