The Ultimate Temecula Challenge

For those athletes that want to challenge their endurance and strength, there will be special awards for completing in both the 100 mile Bike Ride and the Triathlon. Challenge Yourself……. Tri them all!

Benefits

In addition to participating in a great two-day athletic event that has something for everyone, your participation will help raise money for local scholarships and help support a great literacy program! The Rotary Club of Temecula annually gives up to 25 $1,000 academic scholarships to deserving high school seniors to help them attend college.

Benefits continued

Also, the club’s literacy program provides a new, age appropriate book every month to approximately 500 children between age birth and 5 years old in the Temecula Valley. 100% of the net proceeds from The Temecula Challenge help to fund these projects. Your support of these worthy causes is greatly appreciated! You can support this event as an athlete, Expo participant, and/or sponsor. Please request a sponsor brochure for more details.
