Alistair Brownlee confirmed to race Gloria Challenge Mogán Gran Canaria

Challenge Family will welcome Alistair Brownlee on 22nd April 2017 in the pro line-up of the second Gloria Challenge Mogán Gran Canaria 70.3 race, marking his new involvement in competitive long-distance triathlon.

Challenge Family is delighted to announce that double Olympic and two-time ITU Triathlon World Series champion, Alistair Brownlee, has chosen this year’s Gloria Challenge Mogán Gran Canaria to launch his long-distance triathlon career.

Taking place on 22nd April 2017- one day before his 29th birthday – the 70.3-mile race will provide Alistair’s first opportunity since claiming double Olympic glory to compete in a longer and more enduring race programme. The announcement that the current Olympic triathlon champion will join the line-up comes after the Yorkshireman first hinted at the end of last year that he will gear his training towards other goals outside of the Olympics.
