Challenge Bahrain is set to take place on 20 November 2015 as the Nasser Bin Hamad Triple Crown Grand Final – with the winners to become triathlon’s first instant millionaires.


This year’s race will also be the ‘world’s first half-distance night triathlon’, according to the organisers. The swim will take place as the sun sets over Bahrain’s spectacular skyline, and the athletes will complete the bike and run in the dark along a well-lit course.

“We are delighted to announce Challenge Bahrain 2015 under the direction of new general manager, Mikel Calahorra,” said Challenge Family CEO, Zibi Szlufcik.

“We have no doubt that Challenge Bahrain will again set new standards for triathlon with its exciting night race format and we very much look forward to returning to this spectacular nation.”
