The Challenge


The time for the challenge has come. Let's fly our flags - 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

What is now the world's largest long-distance triathlon event will be held next Sunday in Roth, Franconia. Around 260,000 spectators are expected to turn the tranquil place into a sea of ​​triathlon enthusiasts. Challenge Roth has been writing its own stories since 1984 and has since made a name for itself on the global triathlon scene. Above all, the family atmosphere and the enthusiasm and hospitality of the Franconians make the event so special. So it is fitting that the participating professional athletes are not staying in hotels as usual, but in selected host families.  

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