Racers of all experience levels pedal, sprint, and paddle their way through a trifecta of physical events and end the competition in a specially designed urban obstacle course. The first three parts of the event span approximately 6 miles, 8 miles, and 4 miles respectively. Each event raises money for a community organization or cause. Youth and family divisions encourage participation from all people who want to take part in the activity.
