Team Challenge’s Triathlon training program is great for first timers or those who want to improve their performance! Their coaches have a 100% success rate of new triathletes crossing the finish line as they are coached twice a week locally in San Diego (as well as Northern California, Los Angeles and Orange  County teams) in each part of the event including open water swimming. In addition, athletes will be given all the tools necessary to complete a triathlon with their weekly clinics covering nutrition, hyrdration, bake safety, transitions, injury prevention, and open water as well as opportunities to receive discoutns from their partners Xterra Wetsuits, Rudy Project,, APX and more!

While training, you’ll also raise funds to support research, education, and support programs for the 1.6 million Americans with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. You’ll receive all the tools and help you need including your own personal fundraising web page to help reach your fundraising goal. Not only will you test your limits, but you’ll also give countless patients hope for a life without Crohn’s or colitis.
