Jonas Deichmann bei der Vorstellung des Projektes in Roth. Erlöse des 120 Tage Challenge kommen den Kinder- und Jugendfeuerwehren im Landkreis Roth zugute.
For Jonas Deichmann, the "120 Day Challenge" is his toughest project to date, as he says. He wants to test his athletic limits. Of course, we also want to work together for a good cause. We want to use the high profile of the project to generate proceeds for the children's and youth fire departments in the district of Roth and for the Laureus Sports for Good Foundation.
As an inspiration, we would be delighted to motivate one or two people in the district of Roth and beyond to take more exercise in their everyday lives through the project.
Extreme athlete Jonas Deichmann wants to complete DATEV Challenge Roth (3.8 km swim, 180 km bike ride, 42.2 km run) 120 times in 120 days from May 9 to September 5, 2024.
The extreme athlete will start early in the morning every day from May 9 with a 3.8 km swim in the Rothsee. Afterwards, he will cycle 180 km on the original DATEV Challenge Roth bike course through the district of Roth and run 42.2 km on the original course through the "Home of Triathlon". Due to shipping restrictions, the swim will only take place in the Main-Danube Canal on the DATEV Challenge Roth race day.
Anyone interested can follow Jonas Deichmann live over the 120 days via tracking. Jonas is of course looking forward to cheers and support along the route.
DATEV Challenge Roth on July 7 marks exactly the halfway point of his project, i.e. long distance number 60. Jonas Deichmann will also be joining the pros, 3,500 individual starters and 700 relay teams on the course at the halfway point on July 7, 2024, before completing his project on 60 more days.
Jonas starts at around 6:30 am with the swim in the Rothsee. From there he will switch to the bike and complete two laps of the original DATEV Challenge Roth course. For logistical reasons and to compensate for the missing meters between the original swim start and Rothsee, Jonas' transition zone is directly at the triathlon park. From there, he will also run the 42.2 km on the original course along the canal and towards Büchenbach. The finish takes place in the triathlon park in Roth. He runs through the finish arch every day to celebrate his finish.
During the project, he is accompanied by a small team. In a campervan, Jonas finds opportunities to refresh himself during the changes. His team will provide Jonas with refreshments during the long distance. During the activity, Powerbar ensures that Jonas does not run out of breath. Live tracking of Jonas is possible.
