About 8,000 athletes will take part in the three-event race on Sunday.
While it's impressive for anyone to complete, it's especially challenging for paratriathletes. Levi Kane and Melissa Stockwell are paratriathletes, and Stockwell is also the co-founder of Dare2Tri. They joined us live from the site of the triathlon during our ABC7 News Sunday Morning to explain how these races are different for paratriathletes.
