Join hundreds of athletes and celebrities for the corporate world’s fiercest competition as we raise money for pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). Inspired by the success of the Entertainment Industry Challenge, the Corporate Challenge was introduced in 2004 for non-entertainment companies to compete in the Malibu Triathlon presented by Bank of America.
There are three distances to choose from:
- Classic Distance: 0.5-mile swim , 17-mile bike, 4-mile run
- Olympic Distance: 1.5K swim, 40K bike, 10K run
