All Triathlons, Duathlons & Ironmans in Germany: An overview of upcoming triathlon races in Germany.
Dates for all triathlon events in Germany, including registration, course, schedule, results and more details.
Every year, around 500 triathlon events take place in Germany. Germany is clearly a triathlon nation: not only do many of the world-class triathletes come from the Federal Republic, but world-renowned triathlon events are also held in Germany.
The supreme discipline of triathlon is the long-distance event, which consists of a 3.8 km swim, 180 km bike ride and 42.2 km run. A well-known long-distance series is the IRONMAN. Each year, this race series includes about 40 events worldwide. While the global title fights take place in Hawaii, Frankfurt is the host of the global title fights. At the IRONMAN European Championship Frankfurt, the strongest triathletes in Europe compete every summer.
The biggest triathlons in Germany
Over the long distance, there is no way around the Challenge Roth in Germany with over 3,000 individual starters and more than 600 relay teams. In the competing IRONMAN series, the "IRONMAN 70.3 Kraichgau" attracts triathletes en masse to Baden-Württemberg.
In Düsseldorf, the T3 Triathlon Düsseldorf inspires about 2,000 athletes to participate. The Olympic triathlon and the sprint distance are the top disciplines. The Berlin Triathlon is held in the German capital.
A triathlon in the Alps
Other well-known triathlons in Germany include the "5150 Kraichgau", the "Würzburg Triathlon", the "Dresden City Triathon", the "Kallinchen Triathlon", the "Rodgau Triathlon", the "City Triathlon Bremen", the "Nordseeman & NordseeWoman Triathon", the "HeidelbergMan" and the "Erlangen Triathlon".
If you fancy a triathlon in the middle of the Alps, the Sixtus Schliersee Alpentriathlon is the place to be. The starting signal is given in front of the impressive alpine scenery of Schliersee. The 40 km long bike course leads through the Bavarian foothills of the Alps. On the 10 km run course at Spitzingsee, you can really soak up the Alpine flair once again. With a maximum of 850 participants, the starting field is limited. It is definitely worth registering quickly.
In the duathlon calendar we can recommend the POWERMAN series. The Powerman Alsdorf in North Rhine-Westphalia, for example, attracts around 1,000 athletes to participate.
