Challenge Turku 11th – 12th August 2018
Being held for the fourth time, Challenge Turku brings an international triathlon competition to Turku and the iconic Aura riverside. Even though the competition draws the world’s best professional triathletes and their Finnish counterparts to challenge for victory, Challenge Turku is also an event for the whole family. There are few barriers to participation, with available distances for people of all ages and abilities!
Challenge Turku is well known for its fast course and outstanding organisation. In addition, the occasion is a great opportunity for visitors and residents to experience the atmosphere of a real triathlon race. The swimming and running stages are especially accessible for spectators. The swimming stage and transition area are located down river near the site of the Suomen Joutsen, and the running route follows the river up to the Aura Bridge. The event welcomes local spectators to come and cheer all the competitors!
