Edit: April Fools’ Day – Challenge Family to implement rolling start at all global events: ‘Let’s make our athlete’s life’s a little bit easier’

Edit: Sorry guys, this was just an April Fools’ Day joke!

In this crazy time when almost all of us are struggling to complete our swim workouts – swimming pools are barely accessible or in many cases even inaccessible – we have asked ourselves how we can help our athletes a little bit. For lots of us it is almost impossible to show up at the start of a race without having been able to do sufficient swim training.

Thanks to a new Global Partnership, this season we will give athletes the opportunity to complete the swim of their Challenge Family race in a “Zorbball”. Athletes who choose this option will be separated in the results from athletes who do complete the swim the regular way. Of course it’s an understatement to say that ‘a rolling start’ will get a total new dimension!

For us it’s important to give all athletes the opportunity to participate in their favorite Challenge Family Race and we truly believe this will help a lot of them!
