Sign up to participate in one of San Diego’s most well known races. The Triathlon began as a local fundraiser for one athlete, Jim MacLaren, after an accident. Over the years, it has evolved into a signature event that motivates and encourages athletes at all levels of physical fitness. You’ll feel great about yourself for this crowning achievement, all while you support a worthy cause. Over more than 20 years, the Challenge has raised funds to help 8,200 challenged athletes from around the world participate.
There’s a weekend full of activities, so you can register and find your pace and place among the many events. Try the one-of-a-kind challenge distance triathlon through one of the most scenic courses in the country. Ironman Champions, athletic superstars, celebrities and world-class challenged athletes will all be onsite for this special occasion. The motivational tone is set at the “Celebration of Abilities” dinner and awards presentation, where amazing stories of accomplishment are shared.
Take home the “best schwag bag” with $350 worth of goodies, including custom Converse sneakers, a CAF sweatshirt, shirt, running shorts, and other accessories that add to your bragging rights. A sports festival will also showcase a Tour de Cove cycling marathon, 5K Fitness Walk, Family Fun Zone, CAF Village with exhibitors, a silent auction, and CAF store.
