PTO Pro Am 2022

The first PTO Pro Am event will see six of the world’s top professional athletes race an Olympic-distance course alongside Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) athletes and special guests including former UFC star Paul Felder and Olympic silver medallist Heather Fell.

CAF athletes will kick-start the day with a 1500m swim from Venice Beach. They’ll then tag in a highly-ranked PTO professional who’ll rip up the road over a 40km bike course finishing in downtown LA. From here, another CAF superstar, or one of our special guests, will complete a 10km run to close out this first-ever PTO Pro Am event.

The PTO Pro Am will team six top-ranked professional triathletes with CAF athletes and special guests to race together in a mixed-relay race from Venice Beach to the streets of Downtown Los Angeles.

The race will be held over the Olympic distance – 1500m swim, 40km bike and 10km run.

CAF athletes will do the swim, PTO professionals will race the bike and CAF athletes or special guests will complete the run.

The first PTO Pro Am will be held as part of the Herbalife24 LA Triathlon, the city’s premier triathlon event with a history dating back to the early 2000s.

The first ever PTO Pro Am will take place on 15 May 2022 starting at the iconic Venice Beach and finishing in Downtown Los Angeles.

There will be an additional professional race outside of the Pro Am with a $100,000 prize purse as well as an array of triathlon and other age group races.

Yes. The PTO Pro Am will be broadcast live on this website, YouTube, Facebook and a wide selection of broadcasters.

Six top PTO professional athletes will be joined by nine awesome Challenged Athlete Foundation (CAF) athletes along with former UFC star Paul Felder, Olympic silver medallist and GTN presenter Heather Fell and Herbalife ambassador and lifestyle influencer Shirley Alvarez.

“At CAF we feel that people underestimate the power of sport to change lives for the better,” says CAF Co-Founder, Bob Babbitt. “Working with the PTO to connect the greatest triathletes on the planet with our amazing CAF athletes as well as celebrities is a dream come true. This event is going to be spectacular!”
