October 21-24, 2021 | Mission Bay, San Diego


CAF’s Community Weekend and San Diego Triathlon Challenge is CAF’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and the largest event we host. But this weekend is much more than the triathlon itself; it is an entire weekend of events and activities for challenged athletes, their families, friends, CAF supporters, volunteers, and athletes alike.


Attendance to CAF’s Community Weekend and SDTC does not mean you are obligated to participate in the triathlon. Quite the opposite! The weekend is about the experience itself, the opportunity to connect with other athletes, to participate in the adaptive sports clinics we are hosting, and to celebrate everyone who is part of Team CAF! We are excited you are joining us for a weekend we dub the #BestDayinTri!


Traveling to CAF’s Community Weekend + SDTC from out of town?

While both the Community Challenge and SDTC are free to register for if you are a person with a physical disability and open to everyone who would like to attend and participate, CAF will be offering travel stipends for those who have a financial need to attend. The funds are limited and will be given to those who apply and present the most financial need.
