On May 4 and 5, 2019 Challenge Riccione will be the center of international triathlon
On the May 4 and 5, 2019 Challenge Riccione will be the center of attention surrounded by lots of additional interesting novelties. On Monday October 15, at 10:00 am CEST registration will open with the first 300 places available for the special launch price of 175€.

The race will be organized in close cooperation between Challenge Family and Triathlon/Duathlon Rimini guaranteeing high quality technical management and excellent execution.

Alessandro Alessandri will remain as race director and has announced some important changes: ‘The cycling route will vary substantially from the one of the previous editions but will still have the same technical characteristics that have made it such a success over the years. Continuous variations in the gradients of the climbs of the bike fraction, fluidity in the run fraction, spectacular routes and all the hospitality of Romagna will remain our strong points. The start and finish will be, as was the case this year, in Riccione Terme, along with all the logistics of the race. We are also studying changes to the run course which we will be revealed as soon as they are defined and detailed.’

The long weekend in Riccione in May 2019 will have a dense agenda of a number of other races, in addition to the long distance event.

The Family Run will give everyone an opportunity to take an active part in the event, starting on Friday evening before the competitive races.

The new Swim-Bike is now included in the schedule, after becoming part of the World and European Multisport Championships, with a 1900 meter swim followed by a 90 km cycle course.

Traditionally, the Triathlon Sprint and Youth Duathlon will complete the weekend’s program. An extremely rich menu that aims to see athletes, support teams and the public participate fully in Riccione and will guarantee a continuity of the event over years to come and a secure a future aimed at international growth.
