Will Ironman and Challenge Cancel Their Russia Events?

February 26, 2022

The International Olympic Committee called for all sporting events to be canceled or relocated from Russia and Belarus. This came three days after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the start of military operations and a full-scale war invading Ukraine.

So that leaves the question: Will the other triathlon organizations (namely Challenge Family and the Ironman Group) cancel their planned events in Russia?

Both organizations have new races planned for the country later this year, in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Neither company currently has plans to cancel those races. triathlete
