The Challenge Miami pro race will be broadcast three times on NBCSN – with coverage of the event on: March 18th at 14:00 ET, March 21st at midday ET, and March 22nd at 14:30 ET.
The racing action will be available for fans to see in a 48 minute highlight show on NBCSN. The pro races will also be live-streamed on Challenge Miami’s Facebook page for ‘the entire global audience’s viewing pleasure.’
Age group races will also be live-streamed on Facebook for both Saturday and Sunday for spectators unable to attend in-person.
International coverage plans are still being finalized. The organising team notes that world-wide coverage aims to include: Pan Asia, New Zealand, Australia, Balkans, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Italy, Japan, Latin America, Macau, Malaysia, Myanmar, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, Vietnam, and United Kingdom, for a total coverage of more than 400 million homes.
“We have the top athletes in the world competing, including #1 in the world, Jan Frodeno, #2 in the world, Lucy Charles-Barclay and 16 more athletes from the top 20 triathletes in the world,” said Bill Christy, CEO of Challenge North America.
“This race will be something you’ve never seen before. The competition is bringing the exhilarating speed and intense athleticism of triathlon right to your living room. We think it may be an even more action packed race than seen at Daytona as the bike course utilizes the road course and the run course uses the oval.”
