“We are delighted that after this bizarre year and having to cancel the 2020 edition, we can now look forward to next year. Our focus is on 2021 and setting up an unforgettable event. Also, we are very happy with our close cooperation with the x-bionic® sphere, the amazing team and the volunteers involved. We appreciate all the effort of the team and volunteers in the past tough months”, says Race Director Tomas Vrzak.

“The Try-Athlon, Sprint, Olympic Distance and Kids Run will take place on May 22nd. CHALLENGE FAMILY THE CHAMPIONSHIP Middle Distance and the Open Series Middle Distance will follow on May 23rd. All courses will be the same as last year’s, giving athletes the opportunity to compare their times and results from then to now. Of course, everyone as spectators will also be able to enjoy an enormously strong pro field during the pro races.”

Registrations are open: limited capacity

Registration has been opened immediately and there is limited capacity. Athletes who have asked for a 2021 registration transfer will be contacted by email with further instructions. “If you want to take part in this wonderful race, I advise everyone to register as soon as possible. Even more, because the registration fees will rise in the long run so this is the best moment to profit the most.” Registrations are running via https://www.active.com/samorin-trnava/running/the-championship-2021
