Challenge Roth postponed to September

The current situation has forced the organizer to postpone the competition

Challenge Family just announce that one of its most emblematic tests, the Challenge Roth it will be postponed for 2 months from July to September.

With this postponement, the organizers hope to significantly increase their chances of being able to face their motto “Dreams cannot be canceled”, Bringing hope to athletes around the world by delivering the legendary Roth race in late summer.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, Roth's team believes that rescheduling is best for everyone, but especially for athletes, volunteers, and the local community.

Organizer Felix Walchshöfer said: “Many of our registered participants for July 4 are currently very behind in their training, especially when it comes to swimming.

 Also, there are still considerable travel restrictions in many countries around the world. 

For us it is important to offer our athletes a safe, high-quality and, in the sense of equal opportunities, fair competition. 

Due to the increasingly extensive vaccinations in much of the world and the possible reduction in COVID cases, which also occurred in the summer months of last year, we find it more feasible to hold the race in September than in July.. “

The organization will offer a refund or re-registration

As there is no guarantee that it can be carried out, fair consideration has been given to all registered athletes.

Athletes can transfer their registration from July 4 to September 5 or, alternatively, move it to next year's race, which will take place on July 3, 2022, all for free.

Cancellation is also possible, in which athletes receive a refund of their entry fee less a management fee.

Challenge Roth is working together with the German Triathlon Union (DTU), in making hygiene standards, to fulfill the dreams of all athletes.

The APA Brands Solution agency, which is also commissioned by the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB), will develop guidelines around these hygiene standards for sporting events and sports associations in Germany.

The German TÜV will certify these standards upon completion.
