Join Team Challenge for a life changing experience. Help cure digestive diseases.


HELP FUND CURES: Team Challenge participants will raise vital funds for research, education and support for the 3 million Americans suffering from Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis - two debilitating digestive diseases that affect almost 1 in 100 Americans. Be part of the solution!

HOW IT WORKS: Join our team. Change lives by raising critical funds. Race.

Swim, bike and run/walk with the ocean as your backdrop! The Monterey Triathlon offers an opportunity for all ages to do a triathlon with a sprint, Olympic, Aquabike, duathlon and even kids events. The swim course begins at Pacific Grove, Monterey Bay before  heading out on the closet, flat bike course along the ocean blue waters! From there, participants will run or walk on the Monterey Coastal Trail towards the Monterey Bay aquarium!

Train each weekend with our Northern California triathlon team and coach Ken Lucchesi; all levels are welcome as he helps you prepare to cross the finish line wearing Team Challenge orange proudly!

Registration is now open. Join Team Challenge today!
