While many triathlon fans are already holding their breath and waiting anxiously for what will happen during the PTO 2020 Championship, there is more exciting news from Daytona, Florida: During Challenge Daytona the so-called Pro-Am Race returns. Participants can bid to form a team with the best pros in the world, so that they can race together with their heroes. The money raised will be spent by the Nascar foundation on children who are struggling at home.

The Pro-Am Race will take place on December 4th, the evening before the PTO 2020 Championship and two days before Challenge Daytona open races. After last year’s success, athletes will have another chance to race with their idols, including, for example, Lionel Sanders, Timothy O’Donnell, Andrew Starykowicz, Sarah Crowley, Heather Jackson and Angela Naeth.
All the pros will take charge of the swimming part of the Pro-Am race, while the amateurs will go for the bik and run parts. Of course, the entire team will cross the finish line together.

You can find the pro’s taking part in the picture below. Bidding can be done via the social media channels of Challenge Daytona.
