Event Name: Newport Dunes Triathlon (Sprint or Olympic Distance)

Event Date: November 3, 2019

Choose from the Sprint or Olympic distance and race in beautiful Orange County, CA! This race begins with a swim in the gorgeous Newport lagoon (400 yards or .93 mi option) and a scenic bike ride on the Mountains to Sea Trail, through the Nature Preserve (8 or 25 miles). It ends with a 3.1 or 6.2 mile run/walk course through the resort, with a finish line celebration right at the lagoon!

Whether you walk, run, swim, hike, or bike, Team Challenge is about so much more than a race! We are a community, a family bonded together for a purpose much larger than ourselves - to help find cures for the estimated 3 million Americans living with IBD.
