Challenge Family holds great respect to all athletes racing in one or more of our events around the globe. For a large part we are happy with the contribution that the PRO athletes make to the sport of triathlon and Challenge Family is proud to be the stage in which the PRO athletes can perform to their best of their capabilities.

In order to race as a PRO in a Challenge Family Event, the athlete needs to apply for and hold a professional membership with Challenge Family. After this it is up to the individual Challenge race organizer to agree with the PRO athlete on additional services and entry procedures. You will automatically be eligible to receive the following entry benefits for any full or half distance Challenge event

  • Free entry for athletes ranked 1-250 in the Prize Money Ranking
  • 50% of entry fee for athletes ranked from 251 – 400 in the Prize Money Ranking
  • For athletes ranked 401 and above, entry benefits are at the discretion of the race director
