Chieming. The ninth edition of the EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon is about to get on its way. Online registration starts on October 15 2019. This year, the EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon was the magnet for around 1,300 athletes from all over Germany and increasingly for athletes from all over the world. The organizers want to continue that way next year. “Of course, we are delighted that “DAS RENNEN” is gaining more and more international recognition by joining the Spirit Tri series,” says event organizer Sven Hindl.
Proven formats, small changes
The organizers are counting on the formats that were successful in the past year and will only make minor changes. On Saturday, June 27, 2020, the competition weekend will open at noon with the fast-paced Mixed Team Relay. In the afternoon the race schedule will continue with the Beginners Distance. “In the beginners format, we responded to athletes’ feedback and slightly shortened the distances. So everyone can dive into triathlon, without concern of not making it to the finish line,” says race director Christine Waitz. Over those 200 meters of swimming, 13kms of cycling and 2.5 kilometers of running, the Osenstätter company cup will again be awarded as part of the relay classification.
Bavarian police is looking for champions
Also championship races will be held. As in 2018, the Bavarian policewomen and policemen are looking for their champions over the short distance. A championship for people with disabilities is also planned. Organizer Sven Hindl emphasizes: “The paratriathlon and the deaf sports are important parts of the event for us, because it is good to show that the topics of sport and inclusion fit together perfectly.”
Registration starts on October 15th
Registration for the EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon on 27th and 28th June 2020 will start on 15th of October. Athletes can not only look forward to an eventful triathlon weekend, but also to numerous national and international triathlon stars. On the middle distance, the highest prize money pot in Germany is likely to provide first-class competition.
