It is just over 300 days before the starting signal for the hep Challenge Heilbronn powered by Audi sounds for the eleventh time in Heilbronn. After a very successful jubilee year with the German championship, a different date and a change in the cycling route, the head organizers Rik and Kai Sauser of the hosting CTH Sport & Event GmbH are already looking forward to the following year. Together with the entire organization team, work has been going on in the background for weeks at the next edition, where they can make the race even better.
A change to 2019 is the appointment: after the early date in May 2019, the race in 2020 returns to its original place. On the third weekend of June, more precisely on June 21, 2020, the next triathlon #intheheartofthecitycenter will take place. By contrast, the new cycle route guidance remains almost unchanged. “The optimized bike course was very well received, we are very happy, how our experience from many years of cycling events paid off,” reports Kai Sauser. So there are only slight, one-off optimizations for 2020. “The character and attractiveness of the course naturally remain unchanged and 100% the same,” continued Sauser. Equally unchanged is the opportunity to qualify for the race in Heilbronn for “The Championship”, the championship of all Challenge Family races in June 2021.
Numerous registrations have already been received, the portal has been open since the end of June. “We are grateful that so many athletes trust us at an early stage and have already decided to participate with us,” says Kai Sauser. Currently and until August 15, 2019, interested athletes can register for the best early bird price on all distances.
