Paratriathlon is triathlon for physically challenged athletes (paratriathletes), which will make its Paralympic Games debut in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro.

Stephen Del Monte, Founder/CEO of DelMoSports Inc. is excited to highlight Atlantic City as host for this inaugural event.
“Atlantic City is the perfect destination to host the Inaugural Mid Atlantic Regional Championships because of our key location between NYC and Philadelphia, “says DelMonte. “We are expecting a huge turnout to cheer on all of these inspirational athletes, many of whom are Wounded Warriors. Paratriathlon affords these heroes and others the opportunity to compete at their highest level. They will inspire!”
