Challenge Daytona Distance PRO Athletes

This year the pro race at CHALLENGEDAYTONA will be the PTO Middle Distance World Championship. The best athletes in the world will battle each other for the US$1,000,000 prize purse, all within the Daytona International Speedway®️ property. Adding to the excitement at the 2020 event will be the enhanced schedule and atmosphere for athletes and spectators alike. The entire course is optimized for viewing, with opportunities for spectators to get up close and cheer for their favorite pros midway through the swim, all along the bike and run legs, and at each transition juncture.

The PTO Middle Distance World Championship will take place on Sunday, December 6th. The start time provides prime viewing for age group athletes competing in either Saturday’s Middle Distance events or Sunday’s Sprint Distance events.

The PTO Middle Distance World Championship is a qualification race, with the TOP 40 PTO-ranked male and female athletes fighting for the title.
