La Jolla Triathletes Inspire
La Jolla’s San Diego Triathlon Challenge (SDTC) is sold out for this weekend, but that’s no reason to miss out on all the fun! Come and cheer on your favorite athlete in this 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride, and 13.1 mile run event. Professional triathletes, world-class challenged athletes, celebrities, and many others will compete this weekend. Not just a triathlon, SDTC is an inspiring activity for the whole family.
Friday, the 22nd, will kick off the SDTC with a Challenged Athlete BBQ and Million Dollar Challenge Welcome at Kellogg Park and a Celebration of Abilities Dinner and Awards Ceremony. On Saturday, packets can be picked up at the Jewish Community Center in La Jolla and a Challenged Athlete Workshop will be held. Sunday is filled with events, from the triathlon to the expo and fun zone.
The SDTC is an annual La Jolla event designed to support the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF). Over 80% of the proceeds collected by CAF is spent on adaptive equipment, training and programs in an effort to provide sports options for people with physical challenges. In the last 17 years, SDTC has raised over $24 million. Wow!
