The pro race at Challenge Daytona has been dubbed “Daytona Distance Under the Lights” and features a 1-mile (1.6 km swim) swim, a 38 mile (61 km) bike that takes in 15-laps of the iconic Daytona International Speedway and an 8.2-mile (13.2 km) run. A stacked pro field of 50 athletes are set to take on the course, with the men starting at 4:30 pm and the women leaving five minutes later. That means the majority of the bike and run courses will take place under the lights on the Speedway grounds.
