TriWeek Virtual Challenge

Registration is now open!

The #TriWeek Virtual Challenge presented by TOWER 26 is perfect for all levels of athletes, from beginner to experienced. The cumulative-distance format allows for participants to count every bike and run during the two-week challenge toward their overall total. 

Have fun participating in this unique challenge, make an impact by purchasing the #TriWeek Package, take home an exclusive finisher medal and have the opportunity to win great prizes.

EVENT DATES

The challenge runs from June 22 through July 5.

WHAT IS A CUMULATIVE CHALLENGE?

Reach your goal distance in a single day, with one run and one bike ride, or break up the miles over multiple days and multiple workouts. Long rides or short workouts, a 5k or 10k, every bike and run during the two-week virtual challenge counts toward your cumulative total.

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

You can complete the #TriWeek Virtual Challenge presented by TOWER 26 inside on a stationary bike and a treadmill, or outside. No matter the distance of your workout, every bike and run during the two-week virtual challenge counts toward your cumulative total. That’s the beauty of a cumulative race!

  • Seamlessly link compatible devices to the platform, including Strava, Apple Heath, Apple Watch, Fitbit, Garmin devices and more, and your results are uploaded to FitRankings every time you sync your device with its respective app.
  • Manually add in your workouts, mileage and time if you don’t have a tracking device.

WHICH DIVISION IS RIGHT FOR ME?

Competitive Division

You will be able to track your total overall miles and time, as well as your total miles and time biking and running, and compare your times and mileage to fellow participants on the leaderboard.

Daily Trials

As part of the #TriWeek Virtual Challenge presented by TOWER 26, we are inspiring participants in the competitive division to complete four, one-day trials. The fastest male and female in each daily trial will take home a Rudy Project helmet! 

Check out the June 25 and June 26 Daily Trials Results! Congrats to winners Gina DeVito (40k Bike - Women's), Jeff E. (40k Bike - Men's), Kassandra Rosenbum (10k Run - Women's) and Rich Grandelli (10k Run - Men's)

#TriWeek Virtual Challenge Daily Trials 

  • June 25 – 40k Bike – celebrate Bike Day 
  • June 26 – 10k Run – celebrate Run Day 
  • July 2 – 20k Bike – kick off the holiday weekend 
  • July 4 – 5k Run – start the holiday the right way 

How do the daily trials work? With your device already synched to the FitRankings platform, just bike or run the required distance on the designated day. You won’t be able to see your daily time and distance on the #TriWeek Virtual Challenge leaderboard, but our team will be tracking everyone’s results on the back-end. Results will be posted right here on June 29 for the June 25-26 trials and July 6 for the July 2-4 trials.

Eligible times for daily trials will begin at 12 a.m. and end at 11:59 p.m. each day of the designated trial, with times being relative to participant’s time zone. Winners will be notified by email.

Note that the daily trial will track EVERYTHING you do in the day, including your warm-up and cool-down. So if you do not want that to be factored into your cumulative time, please do not upload. USA Triathlon calculates the final time by taking the duration of your total ride divided by the total distance based on meters. Once your meters per minute is calculated, it is taken times the distance of the challenge to arrive at your final time for the distance challenge.
