“As CHALLENGEFAMILY we highly value the voice of the athlete. After every race we send out a survey to learn what is good and what could be done better. This questionnaire is an important instrument for our race directors to keep improving the race experience and the service level from year to year. So we invented the CHALLENGEFAMILY Awards to give a bigger vote to the athletes and bringing our slogan #allabouttheathlete to life,” Jort Vlam explains on behalf of CHALLENGEFAMILY. “On top of that, it’s a great way to reward the organising teams of the best races for their efforts in delivering excellence. And last but not least the Awards will stimulate all our race directors to grow in their job to offer the best possible race experience.”
