Taking place in Taiwan’s stunning tropical east coast in and around Taitung, Challenge Taiwan marks Challenge Family’s first full distance in Asia and second half distance following the announcement of Challenge Laguna Phuket Tri-Fest earlier this month.
Taitung is famous for its hot springs and surfing as well as spectacular coastline and mountains and its scenic beauty has earned it the name of ‘garden of Taiwan’. The Challenge Taiwan course reflects the many reasons why Taitung is fast becoming the Taiwanese centre for triathlon and cycling.
The swim takes place in the flowing lake in Taitung Forest Park followed by an undulating bike course which heads north between the soaring Carp Mountains and spectacular Pacific Ocean coastline, passing through traditional Taiwan villages along the way.
The run combines the cultural heart of Taitung city with the surrounding tranquil rice fields and orchards and vibrant ocean promenade.
Also features relay teams to encourage all levels of participation and to all an easier transition for those looking to take on triathlon’s ultimate distance.
