We are sorry to announce that they can not take place this year!
There are three possibilites:
1) tested: antigen test 48h, pcr test 72h
2) vaccinated: Vaccinated with a vaccine confirmed by the EU, 22 days and no longer then 3 month after first vaccination, or 9 month after full vaccination
3) recovered from covid infection: 6 month after officially recovered from covid infection
As a starter at the Challenge St. Pölten you can enter Austria without quarantine. Athletes from countries with entry restrictions (in May) to Austria need in any case an invitation from us. All the details you can find here.
We offer a goodwill solution in this case and allow a free transfer to the next year. In principle, the Terms and Conditions of the organizer would apply, which do not allow any refund or transfer after 31.3. But in this case a transfer without transfer fee is offered for the affected athletes.
Each athlete is allowed to bring another person into the bubble. This person must be registered in advance and also have a negative antigen or PCR test. The rest can be along the course. Also the EXPO can be entered by everybody and there will be a catering outside “the bubble”.

No, we do not have a waiting list.
The best place to watch ist around the event venue, next to the finishline or along the run course. The roads along the bike course are mostly closed, so it is not easy to watch the bike AND run part. Because of COVID restrictions this year visitors can’t enter the race area. But they can watch the race along the course (public space).
No, because of the prevention concept there won’t be any side events. Normally we have the Junior Challenge and Company- and Funtriathlon on Friday. We hope that next year we can do them again.

The swim course will be in too different lakes. Between the lakes your have a few meters of running. The start is single start in group. Which means every two seconds one athlete will enter the lake and after 200 athletes there will be a short break.
