WELCOME TO THECHAMPIONSHIP
THECHAMPIONSHIP is the new standard in international triathlon. The half distance (1.9/90/21.1) championship event will take place at the incredible x-bionic® sphere in Samorin, Slovakia on June 3, 2017.
For professional athletes, THECHAMPIONSHIP 2017 will carry a minimum €150,000 professional prize purse. A unique professional qualifying system will firstly see professional athletes able to qualify for THECHAMPIONSHIP 2017 via CHALLENGEFAMILY events worldwide.
Age group athletes will have the opportunity to qualify with a top six age group finish at any CHALLENGEFAMILY event worldwide during the qualification period. Top 3 teams in the male, female and mixed categories in relay events will qualify for THECHAMPIONSHIP at CHALLENGEFAMILY events.
