We transport and guide your loved ones from point to point all day in this logistically complex event.

"What about travel insurance?" We strongly advise you take out travel insurance in the event you have to cancel your race tour. Changes and cancellations can be handled up until January 31 for the tour. After that date, all sales are final and no changes or refunds may be made, no exceptions. All $500 initial deposits are non-refundable, as they are used to secure your spot on tour. We have partnered with World Nomads to provide excellent coverage at budget-friendly prices. Go here to see just how inexpensive it is to insure your travel investment in the trip against financial loss. 

"How do I prepare for Challenge ROTH? I need a plan." We offer training plans that are written exclusively for this race course and accommodate every level of triathlon experience. Plans are written to begin 16 weeks or 20 weeks before race day. Personal coaching is also available, Want to book a one hour session with our Challenge Roth Pro Coach to ask your specific training or race questions? We can set it up! Please write to us if you need assistance with your preparation: We can definitely help!

"I'm not from the U.S. or the Americas region. Can I still gain entry and travel with you?" Yes! We primarily represent athletes from the Americas (Canada, United States, Mexico, and Central and South America), but let us know where you are from and we will get you into the Challenge Roth tour of your choice quickly!

"What are the payment terms?" We confirm your booking with a $500 initial non-refundable deposit per person (athlete or spectator). A second installment will be taken on July 1 (50% of your balance), with the final amount collected on November 1. You also have the option of paying in full at time of booking; SAVE $100 on your total when you pay in full at time of booking.

"What if I have to cancel?" Please take travel insurance to mitigate your possible financial loss due to unplanned cancellation. Up until January 31, 2020 if you notify us in writing on or before that date, we can immediately process your refund, less your initial $500 deposit. AFTER Jan. 31, no cancellations, changes, or refunds are permitted. A lot can happen before race day, and we would hate to see you lose your entire investment into the Challenge Roth tour. In the very unlikely event that RaceQuest has to cancel the event, you receive a 100%, full refund from us.
