Duathlon Middle Distance

Challenge this! Don’t want to tackle the entire triathlon? You can still bike and run at Daytona International Speedway, the iconic “World Center of Racing,” during the CHALLENGEDAYTONA festival weekend. December 9, 2018, it’s on!

Run Course

3.1 miles

The 3.1 miles run takes you on one excitement-filled lap of the track—running where NASCAR history is made. You’ll finish in the FanZone to the roar of the crowds, like countless sporting legends who have come before you. Maybe you won’t hit the speeds that NASCAR drivers clock, but it’s sure to be a fast run, fueled by the enthusiasm and energy of the crowds. It’s also sure to be an experience you’ll never forget!

Bike Course

56 miles

After a quick transition, you’ll enjoy an unprecedented opportunity to race a lap around Daytona International Speedway by bike.

Next, you’ll leave the circuit via one of the north exit tunnels, a narrow tunnel with a drop and rise that will send you off onto the course like a rocket. You’ll complete a circuit on roads named after celebrated NASCAR drivers, passing alongside the famous aerospace school, just meters away from the major runways at Daytona International Airport. At the end of the 56-mile course, you’ll turn back at Daytona International Speedway to prepare for your run.

Run Course

13.1 miles

Finally, it’s time for a half marathon like you’ve only imagined. The run takes you on four excitement-filled laps of the track—running where NASCAR history is made. You’ll finish in the FanZone to the roar of the crowds, like countless sporting legends who have come before you. Maybe you won’t hit the speeds that NASCAR drivers clock, but it’s sure to be a fast run, fueled by the enthusiasm and energy of the crowds. It’s also sure to be an experience you’ll never forget!
