The Poland Business Run Foundation has signed a cooperation agreement with Challenge Gdańsk, thanks to which triathlon participants will help PBR beneficiaries. The competition will take place on June 14-16, 2024 in Gdańsk. We invite you to sign up!
Challenge Gdańsk is one of the most attractive triathlon events in Europe, in which both professionals and amateurs fight together over three distances:
Sprint – 750 m swimming, 20 km cycling, 5 km running.
Olympic – 1500 m swimming, 40 km cycling, 10 km running.
Medium – 1900 m swimming, 90 km cycling, 21.1 km running.
At each distance you can start alone or in a relay. A triathlon relay is a two- or three-person team in which participants divide the individual stages of the race – swimming, cycling and running.
– Our domain is relay running, but we know that triathlon is gaining popularity in Poland. For the participants of the Poland Business Run, the main motivation is the charitable cause and support for people with physical disabilities and after mastectomy. Thanks to cooperation with Challenge Gdańsk, we invite our runners to the relay, in which they can also test themselves in swimming or cycling, but the goal remains the same – to support PBR beneficiaries – emphasizes Agnieszka Pleti, president of the Poland Business Run Foundation.
The Poland Business Run Foundation has become a charity partner of the triathlon competition, which means that PLN 100 from each purchased business relay package will be allocated to the purchase of wheelchairs, prostheses or specialized rehabilitation for the Foundation’s patients.
– From the very beginning, we wanted Challenge Gdańsk to be charitable, so cooperation with Poland Business Run is natural for us. In addition to triathlon competitions as part of Challenge Gdańsk, we also organize a recreational run for women, the aim of which is to help children in hospice. Sports emotions, satisfaction from helping and good fun are the goals of our event! – adds Adam Greczyło, director of the Challenge Gdańsk competition.
Challenge Gdańsk is an event very well assessed by the participants themselves – the competition in its debut version received the prestigious Race of The Year 2021 award, i.e. the best event in the world, in the competitors’ vote.
It is also an event for the whole family, as accompanying competitions include Aquthlon for children aged 7–17, a combination of swimming and running, as well as the previously mentioned women’s run.
The prices of starter packages are lower until the end of the year, so it is worth registering now.
