Cancelation Challenge St. Pölten 2020

Dear Athlete, Dear Challenger,

What affects triathlon events worldwide also affects this year’s Challenge St.Pölten: Heavily hearted we have to announce the cancellation of this year´s event. – and all that with the strongest field of athletes in the history of triathlons ever held in St.Pölten.
We make that decision knowing that it is the only accurate one to make since it will be foreseeable that governmental bans such as gatherings, events and nationwide entry bans will be held upright until the day of the event. Because we triathletes see ourselves as ambassadors of health – and that beyond competition.

As your event organizer, we see this situation as an opportunity to live the values of the Challenge-Family. Which are: Solidarity and handshake quality, especially in more difficult times. You’ll get a link with a online-formular where you decide what you want to do. Your transacted investments to the Challenge St. Pölten will be ensured either way.

Re-Register: We will transfer your registration to the Challenge St. Pölten 2021, free of charge. Taking this option, you will strengthen the Challenge-Family and the local competition in St. Pölten and its local supporters/staff which contribute to the realization of the event every year.

Deregister / total check-out: We will return your entry fee.
