Challenge Kick-Start Weekend starts the competition year
Save the Date - 4/5 May!

The Challenge calendar starts in early May with the first "cult event of the year", the big Challenge Kick-Start Weekend. It is an opportunity to train together, talk triathlon and of course raise funds for charity in preparation for the "big day", DATEV Challenge Roth on 7 July. It's a great fun weekend, with the highlight of the celebrity bike course recce really conveying the 'Challenge feeling'. 

The weekend starts on Saturday at 10:00am with the CHALLENGE WOMEN Active Day featuring stretching, a great workout run for all women with running ABC followed by a relaxed Get2gether with brunch (www.challenge-women.de). Special guest is runner and run trainer, Sandra Mastropietro, who will share many valuable running tips with participants.

From 2 to 6 pm, it's once again time for the the popular charity swim at Rother Freizeitbad where "Every Lap Counts". Each lap of the pool will raise 50c for charity and this year proceeds will go to the Hospice Association Hilpoltstein - Roth e.V. The Association was founded in March 1998 with the aim of "giving days more life" for those nearing the end of their time, creating comfortable conditions for the seriously ill and dying and their relatives. 

Another highlight of the Kick-Start Weekend is the Sunday bike ride on the original DATEV Challenge Roth course, starting at 9 am, organised by Matthias Fritsch(Professional Endurance Team) and TEAMCHALLENGE with special guests. This is followed by a group run along the marathon route.

Throughout the day the Professional Endurance team and pro triathletes will provide race tips, explain the transition zones and provide other useful information for race weekend.  

A detailed programme for the Kick-Start Weekend will follow shortly. Pre-registration for the bike ride is essential at:
