Challenges give racers an extra list of things to accomplish in Mario Kart Tour beyond unlocking all of the characters, karts and gliders. Some challenges in the game are easy and others are quite challenging.
The more challenging ones aren't around for too long fortunately because they're exclusive to specific tours that take place within Mario Kart Tour.
In Mario Kart Tour, there are three types of challenges: Tour Challenges, Gold Challenges and Standard Challenges.
Tour and Gold Challenges are exclusive to whatever tour is taking place in the game while Standard Challenges have no time limit attached to them.
The first tour of Mario Kart Tour is the New York Tour and it brought Tour Challenges 1 and Tour Challenges 2 into the game. Tour Challenges 2 isn't yet available, but this set of challenges will drive in five days.
You can check the status of the game's challenges, including how much time is left for them to leave or arrive, by going to the selecting the Challenge button in the game's main menu.

Gold Challenges are attached to whatever the current tour in Mario Kart Tour is at any given time. At the game's launch, that tour is the New York Tour and the Gold Challenges represent nine challenges that are more difficult to complete than any of the other challenges in Mario Kart Tour.
