On 4 and 5 May 2019 Challenge Riccione will be the center of attention with a lot of interesting novelties.
On Monday 15 October, at 10:00 AM (Italian time) registration opens with the first 300 places available for the special launch price of 175€.
The organization of the race will be taken care of by Challenge Italy, a new Italian association which is the property of the Challenge Family, with TD Rimini guaranteeing the usual high quality technical management of the event.
Alessandro Alessandri remains the race director and announces some important changes: ‘The cycling route will vary substantially from the one of the previous editions but maintains the same technical characteristics that have made it such a success over the years. Continuous variations in the gradients of the climbs of the bike fraction, fluidity in the run fraction, spectacular routes and all the hospitality of Romagna will remain our strong points. The start and finish will be, as was the case this year, in Riccione Terme, along with all the logistics of the race. We are also studying changes to the run course which we will reveal as soon as possible, as soon as they are defined and detailed.’
The long weekend in Riccione in May 2019, will have, in addition to the long distance race, a dense agenda of other races.
The Family Run will give the opportunity to all citizens to take an active part in the event already starting from Friday evening before the competitive races.
The new Swim-Bike is now included in the schedule, after becoming part of the World and European Multisport Championships, with 1,900 meters of swimming followed by 90 km of cycling.
A Triathlon Sprint and Youth Duathlon will complete the weekend’s program, as is tradition.
An extremely rich menu that aims to see athletes, support teams and the public participate fully in Riccione and that guarantees a continuity over the next years of an event that looks to the future aiming for international growth.
