Challenge Vittoria launched

New event for July 2013

Challenge Vitoria is the latest addition to the Challenge Family global series of long distance triathlons. The new full distance race was announced today in the historic Basque town of Vitoria for 28 July 2013.


Vitoria is the European Green Capital with more green spaces per capita than any other European city and the spectacular course makes the most of this stunning location. Designed in conjunction with local triathlete Eneko Llanos, the course features a 3.8km swim in the Ullibarri-Gamboa Lake in the beautiful Landa Provincial Park.

The two-lap 180km bike course passes through the scenic Alava plains as well as visiting several historic Basque villages and running along side the Elguea mountain range. The final marathon starts and finishes in the cultural heart of the medieval city of Vitoria, surrounded by the spectacular architecture of the Plaza de España.


Challenge Vitoria will join the award-winning Challenge Barcelona half and full distance races in Spain and will be organised by the same respected team.
