Challenge Family has announced a multi-year partnership with leading triathlon tour company, Tri Travel, to provide quality and convenient travel support for athletes keen to experience Challenge Family races around the world.
In addition to the existing long-standing partnership with Challenge Roth, Tri Travel will initially run hosted tours to four further Challenge Family events. These are Challenge Family’s flagship event, The Championship in Slovakia, the world’s oldest triathlon outside of Hawaii, Challenge Almere-Amsterdam in The Netherlands, Asia’s largest long distance triathlon, Challenge Taiwan, and the ever-popular Challenge Peguera-Mallorca.
“Tri Travel has run successful hosted tours to Challenge Roth over many years and shares the same commitment to superior athlete experience. With the world now opening up again, we’re delighted to extend the partnership to include more key Challenge Family events around the world,” said Jort Vlam, CEO Challenge Family. “This partnership is about ensuring our athletes and their families have the most positive race experience possible, from the minute they leave home to when they return and everything in between.”
“The team at Tri Travel and our world-wide partner agents, who have been instrumental in
helping the Challenge Roth Tour become such a success, and we look forward to expanding our tours further with Challenge Family. Together we have a long-term plan to build these experiences, so athletes are well supported and collectively with the race organizers provide an incomparable service. Challenge and Tri Travel have worked side-by-side to help athletes from all corners of the world for over 15 years and we look forward to expanding further,’’ said Shane Smith, General Manager Tri Travel and Challenge Roth Tours.
In addition to the full-service tours, which include travel, accommodation, bike transfers, event entry, course familiarisation and a partner programme for family and friends, Tri Travel will also provide travel support to athletes wanting to travel to any of Challenge Family’s 30+ events using their global network of travel professionals.
