Located in an area for international cultural tourism and with a spectacular scenery of mountain ridges and lakes, CHALLENGEANHUI offers perfect conditions for athletes from all over the world. The swim will be held in the scenic urban river followed by a bike course ride, rich in variety in the south of Anhui. A super flat run course in downtown Anhui will round off the race, where participants will be greeted with the unique experience and vibe of live performances and an enthusiastic audience waiting to cheer everybody home.
“We are excited to welcome the participants to Anhui for an unforgettable event. Athletes will be treated to a stunning course with incredible scenery in South Anhui. CHALLENGEANHUI is the first and only international triathlon event in mainland China and it is a privilege to join the worldwide series of CHALLENGEFAMILY events”, says Hanju Yu, Race Director of CHALLENGEANHUI about the newest addition to the CHALLENGEFAMILY.
CHALLENGEFAMILY CEO Zibi Szlufcik is more than happy to welcome the first ever chinese race to the CHALLENGEFAMILY: “With constant growth in the number of chinese athletes competing in CHALLENGEFAMILY races across the globe, I can only say ‚good things need time’ and after several years of developments, CHALLENGEFAMILY has finally arrived in China in the province of Anhui. The stunning southern mountain range offers so many scenic highlights in the home of the hickory tree and together with exceptional logistics on the ground, we expect an amazing event at the inaugural CHALLENGEANHUI. The Triathlon Sport Festival looks forward to providing athletes from all over the world with warm hospitality, brilliant courses in both the middle and long distance, as well as relays and side events.
