EPIC5 Ultra Triathlon Challenge

5 Iron Distance Triathlons | 5 Hawaiian Islands | 5 Days

The EPIC5 Challenge was founded in 2010 by Jason Lester  when he and Rich Roll set out to complete what many deemed the impossible. The two embarked on an unprecedented and spiritual odyssey consisting of 5 Full Iron Distance triathlons on 5 Hawaiian Islands, finishing in under a week.

Since then, some of the world’s toughest ultra triathletes have participated in this annual event, testing the limits of mind, body & spirit as they embark on a 5 day passage to discover the depths of oneself. As featured in Rich Roll’s best selling bookFinding Ultra”, the EPIC5 Challenge is an unparalleled athletic journey and a once in a lifetime triathlon adventure
