Readers of triathlon magazine have again voted for DATEV Challenge Roth

It's hard to believe, but true: For the eighth time in a row, DATEV Challenge Roth has won "Long Distance Race of the Year" - a perfect end to the ’35 Years of Triathlon in Roth’ anniversary year. This award has belonged to Roth in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Once again, the readers of Europe's largest triathlon magazine, triathlon, have voted for DATEV Challenge Roth as the world's best triathlon over the long distance by an overwhelming 52,4%.

Alice and Felix Walchshöfer were overjoyed to receive the coveted trophy for the eighth time at the "Sailfish Night" in Langen near Frankfurt. Felix Walchshöfer reiterated, "The award does not belong to the Walchshöfer family, but to our more than 7,000 volunteers, the loyal athletes and the thousands of supporters from the town and district of Roth. They are all part of the race, without them we would never be able to deliver the event, especially not to the high standard that sets us apart. For that, I wholeheartedly thank everyone and am really looking forward to bringing the trophy back to Roth. We are very proud and happy that our triathlon crazy district of Roth has managed for the eighth time to create the best race in the world with dedication and passion. "
