Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA)
Team Challenge is one of the premier endurance training programs in the country. As a Team, we will challenge ourselves, change lives and fundraise for cures for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis – two painful, debilitating, and seldom-discussed digestive diseases. Check out our video here
Never Done A Triathlon Before?
No worries! Both novice and expert athletes can complete this sprint or intermediate triathlon course – we have a 100% race day success rate! A triathlon consists of swimming, biking, and running, consecutively, in that order. For first-timers, sprints are very doable and for experienced athletes, it’s a chance to challenge yourself with the intermediate distance!
How Does Team Challenge Triathlon Work?
- We help you get ready for race day through training by professional coaches over 16 weeks at a venue near you. You will be coached to perform at your best for all sections of the event, including open water swim coaching.
- A series of clinics on open water swimming, bike safety, T1 and T2 transitions, nutrition, hydration, and injury prevention will prepare participants for all legs of this event.
- While training, you’ll also be raising funds to support research, education, and support programs for the 1.4 million Americans with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, two painful digestive diseases. You’ll receive all the tools and help you need – you’ll even get your own personal fundraising web page to help reach your goals.
- You’ll make new friends and great memories as you train and race with your team. Not only will you test your limits, but you’ll also give countless patients hope for a life without Crohn’s or colitis.

Team In Training
We are thrilled that Team in Training has chosen to enter “Teams” from around the country in the 2013 TriRock Philadelphia Triathlon. For more information and to find a “Team” near you, click here.
Team in Training (TNT) is the world’s largest endurance sports training program. We provide you with the coaching, training and even the travel opportunities to make your athletic goals a reality. It’s an unbeatable offer with great personal rewards.
What’s the deal? In exchange for training and support, you raise money toward cures for leukemia, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma – deadly blood cancers.
Team In Training participants come from all walks of life – from novice to seasoned athlete. Many begin their athletic journey as “couch potatoes” who want to get in shape, triumph over a challenge and meet other motivated people. Some dedicate their time and energy in honor of a friend or loved one living with a blood cancer. Even more inspiring, cancer survivors have taken on the challenge demonstrating that cancer can be beaten.
The Triathlon Experience with Team In Training
Team In Training provides participants with the fitness training and group support needed to succeed. Participants learn the skills necessary to cross the finish line and raise funds to benefit the Society. The average TNT participant covers 600 miles while training and burns 60,000 calories, which is equivalent to a 17-pound weight loss. Over the years, our athletes have logged more than 90 million miles during training.
For four to five months, the athletes train with certified coaches who prepare them for their specific event. They attend local workshops on nutrition, technique, injury prevention, race day strategy, fundraising skills and build friendships with others on the team. Members receive guidance from the TNT Mentor Program, which matches them with past TNT participants who share their training, fundraising and racing experiences.
TNT certified coaches help participants achieve optimal performance based on their personal goals and abilities. In return for four to five months of intensive, small-group training, TNT racers agree to raise money to help the Society meet its mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families. The Society provides participants the various tools, strategies and support needed to attain their fundraising goals.
Cheering them along, from training to competition, is a group of special motivators known as Honored Teammates, local blood cancer patients providing inspiration and motivation to the team. Early in the program participants are given wristbands identifying their Honored Teammates, which they continue to wear throughout their training.
Todd Wiley- Head Team In Training Coach has trained more than 600 local Team In Training participants in the last six years. His experience as a professional athlete has gained him many accolades at running and triathlon events including Ironman competitions. Todd is personally rewarded by helping first time triathletes complete a life goal. Train with the TEAM and complete your first triathlon or improve your current triathlon experience with a worthy cause!
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training® program (TNT) is the largest endurance sports training program of its kind in the world.

And, since its inception, TNT participants have raised more than $950 million to support blood cancer research and patient services. Applauded for its success in inspiring thousands of Americans to improve their health and fitness, the national program’s presenting sponsors are Nike, Runner’s World, and P.F. Chang’s China Bistro and Power Bar and Schwinn are supporting sponsors. The enormous success of this program has helped make possible advances in blood cancer therapies and treatments that have prolonged and enhanced the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients.
