Challenge Bahrain Cancelled

This is big news in the triathlon world…


Official letter from the Challenge Bahrain website…

Dear Registered Athlete,

We regret to inform you that Challenge Bahrain 2015 race will no longer go ahead on the 20thNovember due to issues regarding the road traffic safety permit for the race.

We would like to thank you for your enthusiasm and willingness to undertake the race. We have worked hard for many months to deliver an exceptional race that followed on from the legacy created by the inaugural Challenge Bahrain in 2014. Challenge is committed to delivering the highest quality triathlons on the best and safest courses. In light of the permit issues, we were unable to do this for Challenge Bahrain 2015 so we felt it was in the interest of the athletes that we cancel the race. We will of course provide refunds of the registration fees to all registered athletes.

We know you have trained hard for this race, made preparations and understand the frustration you are now feeling. To this end Challenge Family will shortly be in direct contact with all athletes with a special offer that will help you continue your Challenge Family Athlete’s Journey and achieve your triathlon goals.


Kind regards,

The Team at Challenge Bahrain 2015
