Due to current circumstances in the countries bordering Oman, Challenge Family today confirmed Challenge Oman, previously scheduled for 7 August, will no longer take place.

Planning is currently underway for an alternative venue to host the prestigious Nasser Bin Hamad Triple Crown Series with its record-breaking $1 million prize purse and this will be announced shortly.

The triathlon world will watch as Daniela Ryf (SUI) and Terenzo Bozzone (NZL) battle against the world’s top pros to keep in the running for triathlon’s ultimate prize and the chance to become an instant millionaire. 

“While we are disappointed not to be able to showcase the beauty of Oman to the world, cancelling the race and moving the Triple Crown for 2015 is in the best interests of both the athletes and the local community," said Challenge Family CEO, Zibi Szlufcik. "Special thanks must go out to His Highness Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa for his inspirational support of the sport which is taking it to new levels around the world. We are very much looking forward to announcing location of the second race of the Nasser bin Hamad Triple Crown Series shortly.”
