The Sixto Challenge - 140.6 indoor miles!

Take the Sixto Challenge! Sixto Linares is known as a triathlon legend and a true endurance junkie. Not only has he completed over 25 ironman races and 24-hour triathlons, but he is frequently found competing in the FFC Indoor Triathlons to get a head start on his training season. Routinely competing in “the double” (two indoor triathlons in one day) and “the triple” (three indoor triathlons in one day), Sixto now challenges you to compete alongside him to cover a full Ironman distance triathlon over the course of the indoor triathlon season!

Compete in any combination of multiple regular or extreme indoor triathlons (a minimum of 6 extreme triathlons or up to 12 triathlons in 7 weeks) in attempt to cover 140.6 miles (2.4 miles of swimming, 112 miles of cycling, and 26.2 miles of running) and you’ll earn the title of having completed the Sixto Challenge as the ultimate “Indoor IronMonster”!
