Transition Zone 1 (Langener Waldsee)
The transition zone 1 opens on sunday (08/01/2021) at 5pm. Every athlete brings their blue race bag with the bike equipment by himself and puts it next to the spot of his bib number. This cannot be later than 20 minutes before the race begins. After leaving the water, the athletes have to pass the tent to get to the transition zone 1. All swim equipment has to be stowed in the blue race bag. You can leave the bag at the drop off zone, our team will bring it to transition zone 2 automatically. In case you are
wearing a neoprene suit (olympic, sprint,
short distance: > 22°C & middle distance: > 24,5°C
forbidden!), you are allowed to pull it half off to the hip before you get to the official transition zone.
Transition Zone 2 (Roßmarkt)
After arriving in transition zone 2 you have to push your bike until a volunteer leads you to a place where to park it. Attention: Do not take off your helmet before racking your bike! Nothing can be left at the bike except shoes which are mounted on the bike. At transition zone 2 you receive your red race bag with your running equipment. (Attention: It is not possible to hand in this bag at the day of the race!) Either you hand it in when you check in your bike on saturday or you bring it to transition zone 2 on saturday directly.
Sunday we will not accept red race bags at transition zone 1. All athletes can change in the tent, leave their bike equipment in the red race bag and bring it to the drop-off zone.
On all 4 distances the swim start is a rolling start. All athletes stand up behind the starting line, every 5 seconds 3 athletes can enter the water. The individual race times start to count right after the athlete crossed the starting line, which means the moment you can enter the water does not matter. As well the olympic and middle distance race has a top 100 group (golden swim cap) which starts together before the other competitors enter the water by the rolling start.
The athletes pass the church "St. Katharinenkirche" and finish the race at "Hauptwache". The finisher area is open until 1.45pm. Until then everybody has to have finished the course.
Middle distance (start: 6.30am)

The time is measured in real time. This happens by a transponder chip, which every athlete receives at the bike check in. The chip has to be fixed on the left ankle. The time is measured at the start and finish, as well as at some checkpoints on the race course.
Food and Drink
Please fill up your drinking bottles before the race! There will be 2 food stations on the running course and one on the bike course only for the middle distance. At these stations the athletes can get water, ultraSports and fruit. In the finisher area we offer water, non-alcoholic beer, fruit and cake.
Race bag after the race
The black race bag is for your after race clothing. You can drop it off at transition zone 1 before the race and get it back in the finisher area. Please do not put in valuable items. The organiser will not assume any liability. You can put your clothes from the morning in there. Also, it is nice to have a towel in this bag.
The bike check-out for short distance is between
10 - 11am and 2.15 - 4pm. For all other athletes competing, they can get their bikes back between 2.15pm to 4pm.
Every athlete has to return the transponder chip during the check-out. In case of loss you have to pay 35 euro. If there is any reason you cannot return the transponder chip after the race, you can send it by post to the adress of the event-organiser.
There won´t be a triathlon expo this year. We hope to be able to organise it again in 2022.
This year there will be an online award ceremony. You can find the winners of the different races at our homepage.
Due to hygenic standarts we can not offer any showers this year.
The relays have their own transition zones. They do not get any race bags, the clothes have to be given to the relay partner.
