After a year full of fantastic races, Challenge Family looks forward to the 2022 Challenge Family Race Awards. From Oct. 25 you can vote for your favorite Challenge Family race, course, finish line part, after-race food and much more. The awards were first introduced in 2019 to celebrate the organization, volunteers, and everyone involved, but also to be extra motivated to create the best possible race experience.
“With the knock-on effect of Covid still very much present in our industry, we’re looking forward to celebrating our races who have given so much to ensure the 2022 race calendar was full and enjoyed by the athletes”, Challenge Family CEO, Jort Vlam, says. “The awards will be announced at the awards dinner at our annual race directors meeting in December, a time when we all come together for several days from all four corners of the globe, to plan, share ideas, reinforce our family culture and look forward to the new year ahead.”
The nominations per category are based on feedback from athletes through post-race surveys. There are prizes to win in the following categories:
- Best Race Venue
- Best Swim Course
- Best Bike Course
- Best Run Course
- Best Fans
- Best Finish Line Party
- Best New Race
- Best After-Race Food
- Most Eco-Friendly Race
- Most Family-Friendly Race
Finally, it’s also possible to vote for the overall Challenge Family Race of the Year award. Last year that award was won by Challenge Gdańsk.
It’s possible to vote as of Tuesday Oct. 25 8 AM CEST until Nov. 6 11:59 PM CET. On Friday Dec. 9 the winners will be announced. You can vote here.
