A perfect training weekend in Roth
Training Camp and Official Kick-Off 18-22 May 2022
After a two year break, the traditional Challenge season Kick-Off is finally back.
From 18 to 22 May, it's all about swimming, cycling and running!
On our triathlon camp, together with Pro.TrainingTours and Matthias Fritsch, you will get to know the character of the largest long distance triathlon in the world, recce the courses past and present and experience that pure Challenge feeling! More information about the camp and registration can be found here. Please note: The camp will be in German.
The camp is complimented by our official Kick-Off Day, which is open to all Challenge fans.
Official Kick-Off on 22 May with Get-Together on Saturday Evening (21 May):
The Kick-Off is open to all Challenge fans and is free of charge.
The Kick-Off begins on the evening of 21 May at Rothsee. From 6:00pm you have the chance to test wetsuits from our partner, blueseventy, and round off the evening with a casual get-together.
As a highlight of the evening, sports scientist Eike Zywietz will give a talk on adapting your technique to open water and how you can best prepare yourself for this challenge in the pool. A wetsuit can make many things easier and more comfortable. You will find out what you should look for when buying and what advantages - in addition to protection against the cold - a wetsuit offers you.
On Sunday 22 May the traditional bike course recce takes place. We will ride a lap together on the original 2022 bike course. As in the past, the trip is organised by Matthias Fritsch and the Professional Endurance Team. Even though the recce is free, we ask that you register in order to enable us to plan for the right amount of people. Please register here.
The ride starts at 9:00am. The meeting point is at Transition Zone 2 (Park and Ride-Parpklatz exit B2, Hilpoltsteiner Straße, Roth).
Afterwards you have the opportunity to run about 12 km of the marathon course together. Our running partner, Newton Running, will be there with a stand so you can trial the right long distance shoe for you.
We are happy to finally be able to welcome you again and hope you enjoy the Training Camp and our Kick-Off.
