Public screenings in a summer beer garden at DATEV Challenge Roth

Public screenings in a summer beer garden at DATEV Challenge Roth
Another surprise for the 35Years of Triathlon in Roth anniversary celebrations at DATEV Challenge Roth: ​​As the centrepiece of the completely redesigned Triathlon Expo, there will be a food court in the style of a summer beer garden with big screen. During race week, football World Cup games and a movie premiere will be screened.

Celebrate at the Roth Triathlon Festival
The new food court with seats for around 1,500 people is on the site of the old Rother Stadthalle that has now been demolished. Beer table trimmings and deckchairs, beach flags and decorations will create a summery atmosphere. In addition to the Erdinger Urweisse Hut which will continue to serve Bavarian delicacies and cool drinks, Classik Gastro will bring up to 10 food trucks to the expo. Gastronomic delights on offer range from Franconian grilled specialties and burgers to Asian, TexMex and pasta dishes, vegetarian and vegan food and pizza to desserts and of course beer, soft drinks and bar service. The new Food Court opens on the afternoon of Wednesday 27 June until Monday 2 July.

Football meets triathlon
The highlight of the Food Court is a 4.5 by 2.5m LCD screen showing World Cup matches during race week. Kick-off is on Wednesday at 4:00pm with Germany v South Korea. On Thursday, one of the two afternoon games (Senegal v Colombia or Japan v Poland) will be shown and Round 16 will show on Saturday at 4:00pm. If Germany progresses, it is even thought possible to transfer the game to Monday. As the only major public screen in Roth, DATEV Challenge Roth's food court offers a unique experience for all football fans.

Germany premiere for "We Are Triathletes"
There’s no football shown on Thursday 28 June for a very special reason! At 7:30pm, the curtain goes up for the German premiere of "We are Triathletes" which was shot in Roth in 2014. The documentary by Yanfeng Zhang, produced by triathlon legend Bob Babbitt, will not be released in cinemas until August. The lavishly produced documentary shows the preparation and the competition of six long-distance athletes, including World Champion Mirinda Carfrae, the legendary Luke McKenzie and para-athlete Rudy Garcia-Tolson.

In addition to these programme highlights, the Food Court offers daily summer events in a relaxed triathlon environment from Wednesday 27 June to Monday 2 July, including the traditional Erdinger Urweisse Hütt'ngaudi on Thursday and a Hütt'ngaudi on Friday, an After Work party with music, and on Saturday a "Thank Goodness I Don’t Have to Race" party! On race day, the live stream of DATEV Challenge Roth will show in the beer garden from 11:00am.

Newly designed triathlon expo
The Food Court is the centrepiece of the completely redesigned Triathlon Expo following the demolition of the Rother Stadthalle. It covers around 4,000 square metres and, with well over 100 exhibitors, is one of the largest triathlon expos worldwide. This year it is more compact to provide a better experience. The fans of the world's largest long-distance triathlon can also find the large Challenge Merchandise tent with the new anniversary collection "35 Years Triathlon in Roth" in a prominent position.
