Challenge Family is proud to have a pro athlete world bonus scheme connected to its races. The initiative provides professional athletes with the opportunity to race for a share of a US$100,000 end-of-season bonus as well as a prize purse at the races. The World Bonus starts with the first eligible Challenge Family event in 2024 and ends with the last race taking place in 2024.

The US$100k bonus pays five deep across both men and women with the top ranked pros taking home $22k, second will earn $14k and third will win $8k, fourth $4k and fifth $2k.

Ranking is decided through a points system based on placings earned. Athletes are only able to count their six best Challenge Family or Clash races during the season, of which no more than one can be a long distance race (226km). In the advent of a tie, the prize money will be shared.

For all other Challenge Family race prize purses and full breakdowns, please go to the individual race websites or contact Belinda Granger:
