Following the success of June 2017’s inaugural The Championship, the Challenge Family have announced that the X-Bionic Sphere in Samorin, Slovakia, will be the host venue of the Championship for the next three seasons.


The 2018 Championship will take place on the 2-3 June 2018, and will adopt the same racing rules, including the new 20m drafting rule enforced on the bike leg. “We continue to listen to athletes’ requests and we recognised that maintaining a fair race for all is an absolutely integral part of the Challenge Family and the new legacy of The Championship,” said the Challenge CEO Zibi Szlufcik.

The event will again be live streamed on the official website. Live commentary throughout will keep the worldwide audience up to date with accurate and relevant information as the race unfolds.
