2016 Challenge Taiwan
Breezing through the towering mountains and majestic Pacific coastline on the cycling course;
Gliding through the sky blue waters of Flowing Lake;
Running through quaint downtown Taitung passing idyllic crop fields and coastal walkways;
Challenge Taiwan, let’s the beauty of Taiwan be seen.

About Challenge Family
In 1984, the first triathlon event (Ironman) was held in Roth, Germany. In 2001, the Walchshöfer family formed the Challenge Family; and in 2002, held their first Challenge Family event in Bavaria’s Roth county, which became known as the world’s largest long distance race (226.2 km Super Ironman). In 2007, the first Challenge event took place outside of Germany in New Zealand. Since 2009, Challenge Family started to hold events in France, Spain along with Germany and spanning four continents with 40 events and a total of 60,000 athletes.
The word family is not just marketing for the Challenge Family. For them, family refers to an event where everyone in the family from the youngest to oldest can partake and participate in the race. Furthermore, all Challenge race athletes, sponsors, volunteers and spectators are all important elements of this race and celebration. It’s hard to describe using words alone, you must experience it for yourself!
