Challenge Madrid launches a campaign against Drafting

The test is aligned with the Challenge Family philosophy and will boost the 20 meters in its 2019 edition. For Challenge Madrid, the responsibility to end this scourge lies on the organizers. Since the beginning, Challenge Madrid has severely punished drafting in its events and it has also set mechanisms to prevent this from happening. Among them, its straight-line circuit stands out, which causes a higher need of resources and organizational costs, as well as a limitation of the number of participants, what is clearly detrimental to the economic benefit of the organizer.

Just to give an example, Challenge Madrid closed its registrations for the 2019 half distance in less than 36 hours with 600 participants and it currently has a waiting list of over 300.
