Dare2tri Athletes Ready to Shine at Paratri Nationals

Two pairs of blind runners running with sighted guides.

This weekend marks an incredibly exciting moment for Dare2tri and our athletes as we gear up for the USA Paratriathlon National Championships in Williamsburg, Virginia. Eighteen athletes will be racing on Sunday, with many of them vying not only for national titles but also for a prize purse amounting to $20,000.

Taking place in conjunction with the Patriots Festival Triathlon, the championship course includes a 750m swim, 20-kilometer bike, and 5k run that weaves Jamestown Beach, farmland, and forest.

For the third consecutive year, USA Triathlon and the Challenged Athletes Foundation are jointly offering a professional prize purse totaling $20,000 for podium finishers in each class.  This significant prize purse reflects the growing awareness and support for Paratriathlon at a national level.
