Hanoi (VNA) - Challenge Vietnam 2020 has been cancelled, according to organisers.

The triathlon was set to be held on September 13 in Nha Trang city, the south central province of Khanh Hoa, however, the third edition of the race has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It will return in 2021 on March 14.

Challenge Vietnam is the third triathlon to have suffered this fate following the Techcombank IRONMAN 70.3 in Da Nang and TRI-Factor Vietnam in Vung Tau city, the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau.

The date change for Challenge Vietnam makes 2021 a busy year for triathletes.

After the Nha Trang event in March, they will join the TRI-Factor in April and the Techcombank IRONMAN in May./.
