Youth National Championships


Challenge Turku has the honor of organizing the Youth Super Sprint (U15 / U17 / U19) (Swimming 300m, cycling approx. 10 km and running 3.5 km) National Championships on July 30, 2022. Inspired by the Youth National Championships, we decided to renew the program on 30 Saturday July 2022, so that adults will also have the opportunity to compete on the Super Sprint distance. There will be no Sprint race in 2022.

Super Sprint routes are viewer friendly. Swimming traditionally takes place in the Aura River. The bike segment follows the neighborhoods of the Turku Castle, the harbor, and the race center. The run segement goes around the race center in two loops, following the banks of the Aura River. Super Sprint has two starts: in the first start of the day, athletes of U15/U17/U19 will compete for National Championship medals. This start includes also adult elite athletes. The second start is reserved for the age group athletes. The races are drafting free, so the use of triathlon / time trial bikes is prohibited.

The Junior Challenge has two starts: a child + a parent start and an individual start.
