Due to the ongoing public health concern, the 2021 event is cancelled
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The 2021 Ohio State Ross Heart Hospital TriFit Challenge has been cancelled. We’re disappointed that the current situation has forced us to make this tough decision, but our highest priority is the health and safety of our volunteers, staff members, safety and medical personnel, and especially you – our participants.
What is the TriFit Challenge?
The TriFit Challenge Triathlon and Duathlon is an action-packed tour through one of America’s signature metropolises and ends with an exciting finish on the campus of The Ohio State University. Race weekend consists of multiple distance options, including the Ross Tri (super sprint/mini), Ross Fit (sprint) and Ross Challenge (Olympic) triathlons and duathlon. Participants can race as individuals, as part of a relay or by teaming up with their co-workers as part of the YMCA Corporate Challenge.
Event proceeds, additional donations, and pledges go directly to the TriFit Challenge Fund at The Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center Davis Heart & Lung Research Institute and Ross Heart Hospital for much needed research into early detection of heart disease – the #1 cause of death in the United States.
