DATEV Challenge Roth for the fifth time “Race of the Year“
43 percent voted for the Triathlon legend

Unbelievable: For the fifth time in a row DATEV Challenge Roth won the title of “best Race of the Year” – after 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, the Triathlon Award again went to Roth. The readers of triathlon, Europe’s large triathlon magazine, had once again voted for DATEV Challenge Roth as the world’s best long distance triathlon in 2015. 43 percent of all votes went to DATEV Challenge Roth which let all other Triathlon events worldwide (Hawaii 16 percent, Frankfurt 13 percent) behind by far.

At the “Sailfish Triathlon Night of the Year” in Langen near Frankfurt, Challenge CEOs Alice, Felix and Kathrin Walchshöfer were delighted to accept the great award. In his acceptance speech, Felix Walchshöfer said: “This Award belongs to our more than 6,000 volunteers, our athletes and our supporters from the city and county of Roth. For the fifth time, the triathlon-crazy county of Roth hosted the best race in the world with lots of passion and enthusiasm. I thank all our volunteers and supporters with all my heart!”
