Are you up for the CHALLENGE?

The First ever Challenge Triathlon Race to be held in North America, is happening this August in Penticton BC!
Unlike the Ironman race that has been hosted in Penticton for the past 30 years, the Challenge Race also has a relay opportunity. So 1, swimmer, 1 biker, 1 runner – teams of 3! I know many people who have talked about doing the ironman but struggle with one portion of the event. Now they can accept the relay challenge and be able to participate.

Challenge isn’t just a 1 day event! Outside of the race, it’s almost a whole week of fun for not just the participant but for friends, fans, and family too!

Here is what we grabbed off their website!
