With its The Championship 2018 event fast-approaching, Challenge Family has announced that the race, which takes place on 3 June, will once again be live-streamed on the official Challenge Family website. ‘This exclusive stream will allow triathlon fans from around the world to be a part of The Championship and follow the action live as it unfolds.’
CEO of Challenge Family, Zibi Szlufcik, said “Challenge Family has always championed the support of triathlon fans worldwide, and our live stream of The Championship 2018 gives those who cannot make it to Samorin [in Slovakia], the chance to follow the pro athletes and AG athletes live as they compete.”
The Championship race, now in its second outing, will again be held at the x-bionic sphere sports and leisure complex in Samorin, Slovakia. The event will host an ‘outstanding line-up of pro athletes including rturning champions, Lionel Sanders and Lucy Charles.’
In addition to enforcing a 20 metre no drafting rule on the bike leg, The Championship 2018 also operates staggered race starts to ‘ensure both the professional and age group athletes have a fair race’. The Championship will also play host to a number of family-friendly side events aiming to captivate the entire family into the spirit of multisport.
“Live streaming the race not only highlights the remarkable athletes racing, but also showcases the incredible venue, in addition to the wonderful electric atmosphere of The Championship 2018 as a whole,” added Szlufcik.
“The inaugural event was watched by a global audience of 100,000, so we are confident that this year’s race will surpass this figure and set a new standard in triathlon.”
The course of the middle-distance race (1.9km swim, 90km bike and 21.1km run) has been designed so that the start, transition and finishing stages of the race each give spectators views of the x-bionic sphere facility.
