Challenge Family Series

Challenge Family stages some of the most prestigious middle and long-distance races on the annual triathlon calendar.

The Series offers over 30 races in more than 25 countries each year, with around 75,000 athletes taking part. The PRO races are generally high-quality affairs while the Challenge events are genuinely huge festivals for Age-Group athletes.

Challenge Races

As mentioned, Challenge has a string of high-profile events which light up the annual calendar:

Challenge Roth: A genuinely iconic event run over the full distance which takes place annually in Germany with around 3400 athletes taking part. A triathlon festival on a lightning-fast course which has played host to some of the sport’s great performances. Jan Frodeno set the fastest iron-distance time ever there in 2016 (7:35:39) and that stood until he broke it during the Tri Battle Royal vs Lionel Sanders in July 2021. Roth is also still the scene of the fastest ever long-distance time by a woman – the astonishing 8:18:13 by Chrissie Wellington back in 2011.

The Championship: A middle-distance spectacular which takes place annually at the x-bionic® sphere in Samorin, Slovakia. Athletes can qualify for The Championship at Challenge Family events around the world.

CLASH Daytona: Renamed in 2021, the middle-distance event takes place annually in December at the iconic Daytona International Speedway in Florida. The 2020 running was called the PTO 2020 Championship and carried a huge $1.15million prize purse.

Challenge Almere-Amsterdam: With Challenge Family based in the Netherlands, this is effectively the home race for the series and it never fails to deliver. It also doubled up as the World Triathlon Long Distance Championships in 2021, and the origins of the Almere race date back to 1983.


How to enter Challenge triathlon races

Qualification slots for The Championship are available in all Challenge Family races (full or middle-distance) through the calendar.

Other Challenge races – including Roth – allow athletes to sign up and register by paying online for their race entry fee. As with other major races, Roth places do fill up incredibly quickly so you will need to be at your computer right on the button when entries open.
