It began over two decades ago as a fundraiser to help an athlete by the name of Jim MacLaren to become independent once again after a terrible accident. Today, the Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge is a renowned and motivational gathering of some of the most determined athletes you will ever see. And you will be able to see them do their thing on Sunday, October 18, 2015 in La Jolla Cove, CA. Presented by the Challenged Athlete's Foundation, the annual triathlon features several events. There's a one-mile swim, a 44-mile bike ride, a 10-mile run, and a 10-mile wheelchair run. All of them start and end at La Jolla Cove.
There are also many other unique activities taking place at the Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge. Participants will get a chance to compete next to everyone from Ironman Champion Chris McCormack and basketball great Bill Walton to top-rated challenged athletes. There's a pre-events showcase as well as clinics in such topics as wheelchair mobility and amputee running. One of the most moving features is the dinner and awards presentation titled "A Celebration of Abilities," which shines a bright light on stories that are truly amazing. In addition, you will encounter a cool sports festival that features a Family Fun Zone, a 5K Fitness Walk, and the Challenged Athlete's Foundation Village where an array of exhibitors will be showcasing their wares.
