Lo­ca­tion Sardinia, Italy Date 29 Oc­to­ber 2017 As Euro­pean race-cations go, Chal­lenge Sardinia is hard to beat. The 113km event takes place in the half-term hol­i­days at the lux­ury, in­clu­sive Forte Vil­lage Re­sort in the Mediter­ranean, with av­er­age highs in the low 20s.

It’s also one of the very last Euro­pean mid­dledis­tances of the sea­son (Ocean Lava Azores be­ing the other on 5 Novem­ber), so of­fers a fi­nal chance to com­plete your first mid­dle or post a PB and head into 2018 with a rac­ing bang. There are also Try-a-tri and sprint races, as well as count­less ju­nior chal­lenges start­ing at six year olds and up, and a scootathlon.

The race kicks-off with a 1.9km swim in the wa­ters of the award-win­ning Forte Vil­lage Re­sort be­fore the 90km bike takes in the coastal roads, rugged forests and turquoise seas of the Ital­ian is­land. The run leg hugs the coast be­fore fin­ish­ing in the mid­dle of Forte Vil­lage, where a fa­mous post-race bar­be­cue is await­ing. Which, frankly, is enough for us. chal­lenge-fam­
