The official sponsor of the swim- and running course at Challenge Denmark will be the company behind the famous X.

       “2XU are known for their high quality compression sportswear, triathlon wear and wetsuits – perfect for the triathlon discipline – and we are therefore ecstatic to have them on our team,” says race director Claus Vesterby.

2XU sportswear expansion

Since 2XU opened its office and showroom in Denmark in 2013, the company behind it, Enjoy Sport Denmark, has expanded at an almost impossible rate.

       “2XU has reached more than 40 stores in less than 8 month, and more are coming all the time,” says sales manager for Enjoy Sport Denmark, Erik Eriksen.

It therefore makes perfect sense for 2XU and Challenge Denmark to team up.

Calm waters and great tarmac

On race day the competitors will start off in the calm and beautiful Fuglsang Lake near the city of Herning. Then follows a speedy bike ride on some of the greatest tarmac roads in Denmark, before it all ends with a spectator friendly running course and a finish line in Billund.

       “We really believe in this collaboration which is why we’ve also taken on the role as official sponsor of sportswear at Challenge Denmark,” says Erik Eriksen from 2XU.

Triathletes crossing the finish line in Billund on June 13th will therefore be able to pull on a quality 2XU t-shirt along with the pride of having finished a great race.
