Challenge Bahrain returns with Triple Crown Grand Final

Posted on: Tuesday 9th June 2015

CHALLENGEFAMILY today announced CHALLENGEBAHRAIN will once again break new ground in the triathlon world as the world’s largest half distance NIGHT TRIATHLON on 20 November 2015.

CHALLENGEBAHRAIN will also double as the grand final of the prestigious Nasser Bin Hamad Triple Crown which will see Daniela Ryf (SUI) and Terenzo Bozzone (NZL), race against the world’s best in a bid to become triathlon’s first instant millionaires.

With the swim taking place as the sun sets over Bahrain’s spectacular skyline, the athletes will complete the bike and run in the dark along a well lit course. This unique format also allows all finishers to enjoy the festive night-time finish line celebrations normally reserved for longer distance races.

“We are delighted to announce CHALLENGEBAHRAIN 2015 under the direction of new  CHALLENGEBAHRAIN general manager, Mikel Calahorra,” said CHALLENGEFAMILY CEO, Zibi Szlufcik. “We have no doubt that CHALLENGEBAHRAIN will again set new standards for triathlon with its exciting night race format and we very much look forward to returning to this spectacular nation.”

CHALLENGEBAHRAIN is expected to attract the world’s top triathletes to an exciting new, fast flat course and large prize purse, as well as over 1,000 age group athletes from around the world, keen to experience this unique event. At the inaugural event, CHALLENGEBAHRAIN athletes experienced unprecedented quality in terms of race packs gifts, unique course, gourmet carbo party and awards dinner and legendary after-party.

Entries to CHALLENGEBAHRAIN will open on 11 June at an early bird special of US$280 for individual athletes, and soon the eyes of the triathlon world will once again be on Bahrain as it continues to make triathlon history.

Full details on the course will be revealed shortly. For further information, visit
