La Jolla Cove in San Diego hosted more than 5,000 supporters of the Challenged Athletes Foundation at the 22nd Annual Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge on Sunday, Oct. 18—a day that raised $1.4 million to help physically challenged individuals get the support they need to succeed in sports and in life.
Through the 24 Hour Fitness Tour de Cove cycling marathon, Kaiser Permanente Thrive-5K Fitness Walk, Philadelphia Insurance Kids’ Run, Wawanesa Family Fun Zone and the signature Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge (a “challenge” distance format including a 1-mile swim, 44-mile bike and 10-mile run), participants and spectators celebrate inspirational athletic spirit while building camaraderie.
The Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge has earned its moniker—“best day in tri”—for the camaraderie among challenged athletes of all ages and abilities and able-bodied fundraisers completing the events side by side. See images from the event above.
