Paratriathlon Race

Scheduled for an 8:25 a.m. start Saturday is the first Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) World Paratriathlon San Diego, which will feature more than 50 of the world’s top paratriathletes, including the likes of three-time world champion Melissa Stockwell, competing on a 750m swim, 20k bike, 5k run course.

Interest in paratriathlon is at an all-time high, and the sport continues to grow following a December 2010 announcement that it will debut at the Paralympic Summer Games in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.
