This combination offer is only available for a limited time – from January 7th until 31rd January 2016 inclusive.
Challenge Fuerteventura will take place on April 23rd and is characterized by the presence of the best European athletes and the spectacular increase of participants primarily Canarian, Spanish, whose participant number is increasingly closer to the rest of the European continent. This year it celebrates its sixth edition and again has the presence of last year’s winner, Jonathan Ciavattella. Should he win the double, the Italian will reach to the former European champion’s record set by Rasmus Henning, champion in 2011 and 2012.
The second event of the year, Challenge Mogan-Gran Canaria, premiers on September 17th under the patronage of the Cabildo of Gran Canaria (Island Government) and the municipality of Mogán. Launched in the middle of December, this event is born with great prospects for excellent natural, climatic conditions and services offered by the famous tourist town of the South West of Gran Canaria.
The President of the Challenge Family, Félix Walchshöfer said that the Mogán race will be “among the top events” of this international competition. Meanwhile, the six-time winner of the Hawaii World Championship, Natascha Badmman, noted that the South of Gran Canaria is the “perfect place” for a triathlon.
