Challenge Taiwan Run Course

Here's a look at the scenic and unique sights that competitors will enjoy this weekend.

This morning started off a bit rainy in Taitung–site of the inaugural Challenge Taiwan triathlon scheduled for this coming Saturday–but by early afternoon the rain had cleared and the pleasantly cool temps and slightly overcast skies made for perfect exploring weather. I chose to run a single 15-km loop of the run course (athletes in the half distance race will complete one loop plus an additional shorter leg, athletes in the full distance race will complete two loops and the extra leg) camera in hand. Here’s a look at the scenic and unique sights that competitors will enjoy this weekend.
