Team Challenge

Compete for the ultimate bragging rights at the Escape to Miami Triathlon presented by Voler! We proudly offer the Team Challenge competition – a group racing concept unique to the world of short course triathlon.

The Team Challenge is a complimentary, opt-in competition for all registered International and Sprint distance participants. Individual participants form teams, who compete using cross-country style scoring.

How It Works

Groups of 5 or more individuals form a team to compete for local bragging rights and prizes. Finish times from each team’s fastest five finishers are combined (cross-country style) into a final score.

The Team Challenge is open to individuals and triathlon teams/clubs alike. The competition is available within the International race, offering Tri Club and Collegiate divisions, plus an overall winner who will take home the Overall Team Challenge Cup (2018 pictured below)!


  • Teams must consist of 5 or more individuals (may be male, female or co-ed).
  • Finish times from each team’s fastest 5 finishers will be combined to create a team’s final score (cross-country style).
  • Teams with fewer than five people will not be eligible for competition.
  • Large groups/teams/clubs with more than 10 members may create multiple teams. Example: If a club brings 100 athletes, they could create a maximum of 10 teams, each with unique names (ie. “Fast Team, Beer Team, etc.”).
  • Top three performing teams in each division (Tri Club and Collegiate) with the fastest combined scores will receive awards.
  • Top performing team with the fastest combined scores will take home the Overall Team Challenge Cup.
  • Participating team members will remain eligible for individual age group awards.
