History


Challenge Denmark is part of the world’s biggest international triathlon series, Challenge Family. When the first Challenge Denmark race took place June 13th 2015 in Billund and Herning, it wasn’t the first time a Challenge Family race was held in Denmark. From 2010-2012 Challenge Copenhagen took place in the Danish capital, but from 2013 this race was no longer part of Challenge Family. So when the team behind Challenge Denmark contacted Challenge Family to apply for the rights to arrange Challenge races in Denmark, it was based on a big wish to bring the world’s biggest triathlon series back on Danish ground.

The idea behind Challenge Denmark is to embrace the family behind the triathletes along with offering the athletes a professional and high-class race – no matter at which level they are competing. Challenge Denmark is for everyone, from elite athletes living off the sport to Age Group athletes racing their first triathlon ever.
