Pro Prize Money

CHALLENGEFAMILY has introduced a pro athlete bonus scheme to its European races. The initiative provides professional athletes with the opportunity to race for a share of a €140,000 end-of-season bonus as well as a prize purse of minimum €25,000 per each qualifying long distance race and €19,000 per each qualifying half distance race. Full distance races will pay minimum six deep, half distance races will all pay six deep.

The €140k bonus will pay five deep across both men and women with the top ranked pro taking home €25k, second will earn €17k and third will win €13k, fourth €10k and fifth €5k. Ranking will be decided through a points system based on placings earned.
