Junior Challenge

380m swim – 18km bike – 4,2km run

In 2019, CHALLENGEALMERE-AMSTERDAM will again organize the Junior Challenge. This race for school attending youth takes place on Friday, September 12th. It is being organized together with high school Echnaton on behalf of the KVLO-school sports, Olympic Moves. This makes it a Dutch Championship accessible for both professional athletes and recreational athletes.

The two days before the CHALLENGEALMERE-AMSTERDAM in Almere, students are allowed to race on the official course. The distances are adjusted, creating a great challenge for students from secondary education. The students participate in two categories: younger than 16 years and 16 years and older.

  • 18km cycling
  • 4,2km running
