Challenge Poznań is the first edition of the event in the Challenge Family, and, at the same time the third edition of the triathlon in Poznań, one of the largest triathlon events in Europe. Poznań, a metropolis with over half a million of inhabitants, being the capital of Greater Poland and the cradle the Polish statehood became a perfect host for the triathlon, recording, already in the first year, more than one thousand athletes. The second edition, hosting more than 2600 people, became the greatest triathlon event in Poland and one of the greatest in Europe and in the world.

A characteristic feature of the event is an incredibly quick route and incomparable support from the audience. For years, Poznań has been famous for extremely passionate and devoted fans who constantly have all stages of the triathlon almost within their reach, which guarantees unique impressions for the athletes. The route is very flat and broad, making it possible to achieve record time results.

Apart from support from the fans, we guarantee to every participant the support which you have never experienced before – starting from preparations for the event, up to the finisher zone, abundant in meals. You are warmly welcome to come to Poznań!
