IRONMAN European Championship
Germany's urban playground along the banks of the Main river, Frankfurt-am-Main, offers the destination for the triathlon showdown of the year. The World's top pro athletes race alongside age groupers on a course showcasing the region's traditional villages and landscapes, culminating in a finish line on the historic Römerberg.
Athletes begin their day with a swim in the quiet waters of the Langener Waldsee. The two-loop course has a short run between the laps. The two-loop bike course goes through the middle of Frankfurt, and into surrounding small villages. The course, which is closed to traffic, is hilly and challenging, but is mixed with some flat sections. While flat and fast the four lap run course can challenge even seasoned athletes in high Summer, but the stunning finish line at the historic "Römer" will make up for it!
2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, 26.2 mile run
