Challenge Family's The Championship extends event program with open race


Qualification for The Championship 2018 will commence at Challenge Wanaka 2017 and conclude at Challenge Salou in May 2018.


The Championship middle-distance age-group qualification system is based on place getting, as opposed to the accrual of points.


The Championship 2018 will showcase a new experience not just for the pros – but for the entire family! Have a look at the side events!




The middle distance (1.9/90/21.1) Championship event will take place at the incredible x-bionic® sphere in Samorin, Slovakia on June 3, 2018.

For professional athletes, The Championship 2018 will carry a minimum €150,000 professional prize purse. A unique professional qualifying system will firstly see professional athletes able to qualify for The Championship 2018 via Challenge Family events worldwide.

Age group athletes will have the opportunity to qualify with a top six age group finish at any Challenge Family event worldwide during the qualification period. Top 6 teams in the male, female and mixed categories in relay events will qualify for The Championship at Challenge Family events.

Slots will roll down in each age group and relay category up to 12th place. There won’t be a roll down system for the professional athletes.

THECHAMPIONSHIP 2018 will take place June 2nd – 3rd 2018 (side events taking place on June 2nd 2018 and the middle distance triathlon will take place on the June 3rd). The stunning x-bionic® sphere in Samorin will again welcome thousands of visitors from around the world and the highly regarded event will be an occasion for triathletes to enjoy, no matter the age or experience.

Additionally, those wishing to cheer and support rather than race will be able to do so from the comfort and surroundings of the Triathlon Expo, which will be in a central position next to the running course.

Competitors will be offered the following side events on 2nd and 3rd of June with many more in the pipeline…

  • Challenge Samorin Tryathlon – 300 metre swim, 15km cycle and 3km run
