Challenge Regensburg entries to open soon

Chris ‘Macca’ McCormack among those racing new long-distance triathlon in Bavaria’s former capital

Registration for the first ever Challenge Regensburg opens on Monday 1 June, with several hundred athletes already pre-registered – including two-time Ironman wold champion Chris ‘Macca’ McCormack.

The race start on 14 August with a 3.8km swim in Lake Guggenberger, just outside the former capital of Bavaria, Germany.

Athletes will then embark on a 180km bike around the local roads, followed by a marathon through the heart of Regensburg, a world heritage city thanks to its beautifully preserved mediaeval centre.

“I’ve been to Regensburg many times and it’s an absolutely stunning place to race,” said McCormack. “I can’t wait to get back there to enjoy the Bavarian hospitality and spectacular course.”
