Challenge is planning to launch a new flagship race in Galway, Ireland in June 2016, featuring a range of distances and formats including full, half, women-only and kids’ races.


Challenge Galway will take place on 24-26 June in a UNESCO Global Geopark, and two-time Ironman world champion Chris ‘Macca’ McCormack has already signed up. Sound good? You can pre-register from today (8 June) 2015, and entries will open on 21 June 2015.

Challenge Family CEO Zibi Szlufcik says the new race “captures the true essence of Ireland, and the bike course in particular is absolutely spectacular”.
