Champ’s Challenge

The Champ’s Challenge is endurance racing with a purpose.

Whether you are doing an open water swim, running a marathon, finishing a triathlon or cycling your first century, you can cross any finish line for Special Olympics Virginia.

Put your best foot forward in 3 easy steps:


1. Choose your race. Marathon, open water swim, triathlon, cycling, mud run or mountain climb, it’s up to you. You can race anytime, anywhere in the world.

2. Fundraise. Rally your network around your race and your cause. You’re crossing the finish line for Special Olympics Virginia.

3. Earn and train. On race day, you’ll suit up in high quality Special Olympics Virginia-branded race gear (including training shirts, jerseys and swim caps) and represent more than 27,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities in Virginia.
