Petr Vabroušek: We don’t need to worry about the future of CHALLENGE Prague Triathlon

Petr Vabroušek, Challenge Prague Triathlon

Czech triathlete Petr Vabroušek has ranked more than a hundred times among TOP-10 at the IRONMAN and CHALLENGE races all over the world. Last year he took part in the premiere of Ford CHALLENGE Prague and this year he will not be missing at the start of this unique competition in the centre of Prague.


44-year-old Petr Vabroušek is not afraid of extreme challenges. This year he dominated Ultraman in Florida (a three-day competition of 10 kilometres of swimming, 434 kilometres on bike and 84.5 kilometres of running) and after the second place alongside with Tomáš Svoboda at SwimRun in France, both athletes got an invitation to the World Championship in Ötillö, Sweden. At the end of July, the exceptional triathlete will attend home event FORD CHALLENGE PRAGUE.

The unique race returns to the centre of Prague only for the second time, yet it is already a favorite destination among athletes within CHALLENGE Family Triathlon series.

“Last year I was a bit concerned how Prague would manage such event compared to other races,” admits Petr Vabroušek. “However, Prague welcomed participants with a well-organized race and wonderful surroundings. Regular swimming in the river is almost unique in the world just as the race in the very centre of the capital city. We don’t need to worry about the future of this race.”

Extreme triathlete does not consider the Prague race to be extraordinarily challenging. “The track itself is not very hard. Temperature in the Vltava river is nice, cycling is more flat than in the hills and running along Vltava river is great thanks to the atmosphere around,” says Vabroušek. “What make the race difficult are the weather and especially the competition. It won’t be easy.” FORD CHALLENGE PRAGUE won’t be missing successful athletes such as last year’s winner Pieter Hemeeryck from Belgium or German Maurice Clavel.

Petr Vabroušek explains what he thinks is the most difficult about triathlon.

“Put everything on the race day correctly together. Sell what one has trained, spread strength between disciplines, choose the right equipment…Thanks to combination of three different disciplines the triathlon is hard in terms of logistic. A short track can be managed by everyone with a minimum of training and experience. Those longer tracks on the elite level require more detailed planning.”

However, Vabroušek admits that he has never met anybody who tried the triathlon and said that he never wanted to repeat it again. “Go ahead and you will be pleasantly surprised what you can do,” encourages all amateurs who still consider start at FORD CHALLENGE PRAGUE. Interested people should not hesitate – the last 50 places remain in the Challenge TRY-ATHLON category.

And what is Petr goal at this year’s race in the heart of Prague?

“While my priorities are now on Ultraman’s distance, I would like to work the youngsters hard on this sprint track and make the best result,” encloses Petr Vabroušek.
