Triathlon Award “Best Race of the Year“ goes to Roth for the sixth time
54 percent voted for the Triathlon legend

It’s unbelievable: For the sixth time in a row DATEV Challenge Roth won the title of “Best Race of the Year” – after 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, 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 2016. 54 percent of all votes (most votes ever!) went to DATEV Challenge Roth which let all other Triathlon events worldwide behind by far.

Together with all the race directors, the athlete service and the whole organization team, Challenge CEOs Alice, Felix and Kathrin Walchshöfer had traveled to the “Sailfish Triathlon Night of the Year” in Langen near Frankfurt und were delighted to accept the great award. In his acceptance speech, Felix Walchshöfer said that the Award belongs to the more than 6,000 volunteers, the loyal athletes and the thousands of supporters from the city and county of Roth. For the sixth 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!”
