Testing is important!
In your preparation, not only training schedules are important but also testing yourself during events. We’ve selected a couple of races in our vicinity if you’d like to test your strength in our polder. Racing in Almere is quite a specific effort, as there are large portions of the course where there’s absolutely no shelter against the elements.
When selecting these local races, we made sure the courses would be representative for racing CHALLENGEALMERE-AMSTERDAM.

Triathlon Amsterdam Nieuw-West
Have you ever been to Amsterdam? It’s really worth the trip. Especially in combination with a race at Triathlon Amsterdam Nieuw-West. There will be open series in the Sprint and OD races. Enjoyed last years Premier League race in Almere? There’s another race within the Premier League to watch in Amsterdam. More info here.
It takes place in another province, but still quite close to the Almere race site: Triathlon Huizen. A large part of the bike course overlaps with the CHALLENGEALMERE-AMSTERDAM course. More info here.
In June, Zeewolde will be all about Endurance. It starts off with an “ultrashort” Triathlon for students on Friday. On Saturday, we’ll see a triathlon in an unique distance that meets in the middle of a sprint and an Olympic distance. The finale will be a half marathon on Sunday. The students will start in a shorter race than the Junior Challenge, so it’s a good preparation! The triathlon’s cycling course will contain a lot of straight ‘polder’-roads. It’s surely worth it to check out the site!
Just two weeks before CHALLENGEALMERE-AMSTERDAM there’s Triathlon Noordoostpolder. Located about 50 km’s from the Almere City Centre, the start takes place in the city of Emmeloord. There’s races in 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 distances. Check this site for more info on Triathlon Noordoostpolder.
