CHALLENGE Family expands to Russia

Wednesday 03 March 2021

CHALLENGE MOSCOW is the newest addition to the CHALLENGE FAMILY race calendar. This race, which takes athletes to the iconic city’s most famous sightseeings, will take place on July 18, 2021. "Racing in a beautiful city like Moscow is definitely a bucket list thing for many people."

This is the first time in CHALLENGE FAMILY’s history that racing will take place in Russia. For athletes CHALLENGE MOSCOW is undoubtedly going to be an unforgettable experience, as the course will take them through the city center and past iconic places as the Red Square, the Kremlin, the Moscow River, the Olympic facility Grebnoy Canal and Gorky Park. "The entire race will take place in the city center of Moscow. This is a unique chance to see our beautiful city while you’re swimming, riding your bike and running.  Athletes and spectators will enjoy a big concert of Russian musicians, an award ceremony and fireworks over the Moskva River", said Elena Krivenkova, Head of the Organizing Committee at CHALLENGE MOSCOW.

The race will be supported and attended by two-time Olympic champion Alexei Voevoda and three-time world champion, legend of Russian and international hockey, Alexander Ovechkin. CHALLENGE FAMILY CEO Jort Vlam explains. "It is nice to see that these Russian sports heroes will take up the challenge and be at the start of CHALLENGE MOSCOW. But it is even more wonderful that we can organize a new CHALLENGE FAMILY race in this special city, full of history and beautiful architecture. As an athlete, it is lovely when you can combine racing with seeing the world. A beautiful city like Moscow is definitely a bucket list thing for many people. For us as CHALLENGE FAMILY it’s amazing to expand our portfolio to Russia, going even more international during these crazy times. In addition, it is good to give Russian athletes the opportunity to participate in such an international event in their own country."

Krivenkova: "We are really looking forward to organize this event at a very high level and to show our national hospitality. We will host a race for pro athletes and age groupers: an event for everyone. That motto, which is so widely promoted by CHALLENGE FAMILY, fits perfectly with what we want to convey with CHALLENGE MOSCOW."
