2020 Challenge Roth official Tour Operator for Europe
We are pleased that we Sports Tours International have been appointed the official tour operator for the UK and the rest of Europe for the 2020 Challenge Roth. Held yearly in Bavaria, Germany, Challenge Roth is widely regarded as the biggest, the best supported and the fastest long distance Triathlon in the world. The one that everybody wants to do!!
Challenge Roth is not only the biggest long distance Triathlon in the world, it’s also the best organised and it has the best race atmosphere and crowds. For those reasons it’s extremely difficult to get an entry and the event sells out within minutes every year. That’s where we come in with the option to buy a guaranteed entry with our travel and support packages. Challenge Roth offers the best long distance Triathlon race experience and should therefore be at the top of the list for any Triathlete.
The course is fast
Like the Berlin Marathon which is the World Marathon record course, Challenge Roth is the record breaker in long distance Triathlon. This adds another dimension to your experience. Even though Tim Don recently broke the Ironman branded race course record with a 7:40:23 at the Ironman South American Championship in Florianopolis, Germany’s Jan Frodeno holds the overall record for fastest iron-distance race. Frodeno did 7:35:39 at Challenge Roth (a non-Ironman event) to break the previous record of 7:41:33 by Andreas Raelert, which was also set in Roth.
Challenge Roth has history and tradition in a relatively new sport
The event was founded in 1984 and it became part of the Ironman portfolio in 1988. In 2010 the race was taken over by a local family and continued as an independent race and high profile athletes like Chris McCormack, Chrissie Wellington, Jan Frodeno and Sebastian Kienle built the event’s reputation over the years.
It is an amazing experience
These days the best pro Triathletes in the world join 6,000 age-groupers at the start-line and the course highlights are the canal swim, the Solarer Berg climb, the ‘beer mile’ and the finish line amphitheatre. Unlike the majority of other Triathlons, there are enormous crowds that line the roads to cheer you on. The whole weekend is not just an experience for Triathletes, your family and supporters will also have a great time.
