Relay triathlon 2018

How the course is made up: 3 x 1267 m swim + 4 x 45 km bike ride + 4 x 10,548 km run

Not quite ready to try the whole 226km?

Then we have an option for you! Why not try the relay triathlon? Choose a team of between 2 and 11 competitors and do your best to catch up with the individuals. How the course is made up: 3 × 1,267m swimming + 4 × 45km cycling + 4 × 10.548km running. You can choose who does what, and you’re welcome to change competitors whenever you like, as long as they’ve passed all the checks and finish lines. All you have to do is pass over the starting number (just like a baton) in one of the marked handover areas.
