Compete with the Brownlee brothers at the 5th Challenge Forte Village, Sardinia

In 2016, videos of the Brownlee brothers spread across the internet as Alistair helped his younger brother Jonny across the finish line in a dramatic end to the 2016 World Series in Cozumel, Mexico. Alistair Brownlee is the double Olympic Triathlon Champion, Jonny is the Olympic Triathlon silver and bronze medallist.

On 29 October 2017, Forte Village Resort, Sardinia, will be holding the 5th edition of its triathlon event Challenge Forte Village. The luxury Italian resort, renowned for its world class sporting academies, has announced that the two Olympians will participate in the half-distance relay on separate teams and that four lucky athletes will have the opportunity to race in the brothers’ respective teams.
