The Challenge

The Challenge

The time for the Challenge has come. Let's keep our flags high -- for tradition, challenge and passion. Let's use the power of an entire region to create moments -- on and off the track.

A long-standing tradition

The world's largest long-distance event, Triathlon, will be held in Roth, Franconia, this Sunday. Around 260,000 spectators are expected to turn the tranquil town into a sea of Triathlon enthusiasts. The Challenge Roth has been writing its own stories since 1984 and has since made a great name for itself in the worldwide Triathlon scene. It is, above all, the family-like atmosphere and the enthusiasm and hospitality of the Franconians that make the event so special. It is therefore fitting that the participating professional athletes are not accommodated in hotels as usual, but in selected host families.  

The approximately 3,400 individual starters will start the race with the 3.8-kilometer swim section in the Main-Danube Canal. This is followed by the 180-kilometer bike race and the final 42.2-kilometer marathon. Some of them are chasing Jan Frodeno's long-distance world record from 2016 -- 07:35:39 hours -- at the same location.
