Challenge Roth - Long

Date & Location

Roth, Germany

Organiser’s Description

Since the mid 1980s Roth and triathlon have become as inseparably linked as Munich and its Oktoberfest. DATEV Challenge Roth is without doubt the “heart of the triathlon” and attracts not only the biggest names in the sport but also 5,000 athletes from 60 nations and 180,000 spectators making it the largest long-distance triathlon event in the World. Roth is renowned for its thousands of enthusiastic spectators lining the course with hotspots such as the Beer Mile and the famous Solar Hill where athletes can hear the crowd before they see them. Up to 30,000 people line this famous hill – you can’t see the road for the people but as each cyclist approaches, the crowds separate like the parting of the Red Sea and the athletes are carried up the hill on the noise alone!
