Challenge Family Launch Professional Membership

Posted on: Thursday 12th March 2015

Challenge Family today announced the introduction of their Professional Membership Policy.

The system has been introduced to ensure governance of professional athletes holding a current professional license or supporting documentation from their National Federation and therefore eligibility to race in this category.

The policy is a simple process but mandatory for anyone wanting to race in the professional division at any Challenge Family full or half distance event.

The benefits to athletes are plenty and will mean their race experience with us goes beyond just the event.

Challenge Family CEO,  Zibi Szlufcik was full of praise for the initiative that will support professional athletes careers ensuring quality fields at all Challenge events.

“We are committed to delivering quality services to our pro athletes and this policy is another way to provide them with real benefits when racing with us,” said Szlufcik.

There is no cost attached to the Policy – it is a free service we are providing. Additionally Challenge Family are also working closely with ITU to align with their Anti Doping Policy to be implemented in stages.
