The Toyota U.S. Paratriathlon Resident Team, which trains out of the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is on a mission to help support members of the multisport and local communities who have been financially impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the challenging times all around, The Resident Team has challenged themselves with cycling across Colorado in a relay format to raise awareness and encourage donations for the USA Triathlon Foundation COVID-19 Relief Fund and the Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado. On June 19th and 20th, Nine athletes will tackle a 483 mile route across the state, through the mountains and into the flatlands, all in 24 hours! With the triathlon season on hold and the Toyko Olympic and Paralympic Games being postponed to 2021, the team saw an opportunity to expose the world to paratriathlon and what it means to be a part of the squad.
Check out the route and meet the team that will take on the CO>COVID challenge:
