Team Challenge is the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s endurance training and fundraising program. Through Team Challenge, you can run or walk 13.1 miles or train for a triathlon or cycling event while helping to find a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, two chronic and often debilitating digestive diseases that impact 1.4 million Americans.

Beginning in September, our two Team Challenge Central Florida teams train in Orlando and Tampa for The Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Half Marathon! The race course starts at night on the Strip and takes you past the glamorous hotels, nightclubs, casinos and even through the old Vegas strip. Runners will enjoy an exciting and music filled 13.1 course with thousands of spectators cheering them on. The finish line boasts a Festival for all finishers and their families!

When you train with Team Challenge you will receive everything you need to cross the finish line including: training by professional coaches, round trip airfare to Las Vegas, ground transportation, race entry with race day shirt, 3 night hotel stay at the Venetian or Palazzo, and our awesome team challenge pre-race pasta party! In return, you will raise funds to help the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation reach its mission: to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these digestive diseases.

We encourage you to come learn more about the race at one of our upcoming Information Meetings. At the meetings, not only will you be reminded about how Team Challenge can help you and help others, but you'll have a chance to meet our honored hero. You’ll also meet our outstanding coaches, Janice S. and Janice E., who will inform you about our training schedule and how we will get you from zero to 13 miles. At the information meeting you will also get all the info about the amazing Las Vegas Rock N’ Roll Half Marathon, and you’ll be able to sign up for the Team Challenge!
