From Lake Constance to the Arlberg

The Trans Vorarlberg Triathlon lives up to its name: one of the largest Triathlon-Events in Austria covers the entire spectrum of Vorarlberg´s landscape diversity.
As a Triathlon over the half distance, the Trans Vorarlberg Triathlon not only attracts specialists , but also hobby athletes and young athletes. So many enthusiastic participants face the challenge every year. You will enjoy a genuine and intense nature experience.

The Bregenz Lido sets the perfect start location for the Trans Vorarlberg Triathlon: The start takes place in the West Bay. From there, the athletes swim 1.200 meters to the largest floating stage in the World
(Bregenz Festival) – always with a view towards the Alps. Afterwards, 93 breathtaking bicycle kilometers will follow through the green heart of Vorarlberg, the Bregenzerwald, to the Arlberg. No less than 2.000 vertical meters have to be covered. The finish of the triathlon is at Lech: During the run finale, a mix of climbs and mountain passes are to overcome and 12km have to be covered – amidst the fascinating mountains of one of the most famous ski resorts in the Alps. The transition zone is located in Bregenz in front of the Festspielhaus (transition zone I – from swimming to the bike) or in Lech am Arlberg on the Schloßkopf parking lot (transition zone II – from bike to running)

Even days after the 8th Eberl Chiemsee Triathlon, the sporting event still makes for happy faces. For example at the Austrian winning team of the mixed team relay. The “BSP Mitte #luckysgang” relay has picked up its price, a VW bus worth tens of thousands of euros, from Autohaus Osenstätter. “We were stunned to win such a prize!'”, Summarized coach Franz Lugstein the reactions in the ÖTrV junior performance center Salzburg, which he coaches.

Mixed Team Relay is the name of the modern triathlon format, which will be Olympic for the first time in 2020 and had its premiere at the Chiemgau Triathlon Festival in a modified form on June 29th. It is a team race in which each team member completes a full triathlon with swimming, cycling and running. At the EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon, there are teams of three people – including at least one woman. The distances are short with 0.2km swimming, 6.5km cycling and 1.9km running so that anyone can do it.

With tri-world champion Daniel Unger or DTU CEO Matthias Zöll, a few prominent names were at the start. The race showed what the organizers had hoped for: pure action. The video now published on YouTube prooves that. The teams fought for every second, took a header from the Chieming jetty, jumped onto their bikes and swaped timing chips to the next team member as fast as possible.

When Katharina Loidl heard of the winning price for the first time, it was only a few seconds before the start. She says:

“That was a great motivation for the race!”

After 1:11:16, her team crossed the finish line first. Her team included Jakob Kaiser and the two-time Paralympics winner Günther Matzinger. The trio was just 23 seconds ahead of the “Sportfreund Team by Daniel Unger”. Parasportsman Günther Matzinger started the race in second place and led the team to victory in the end. The “BSP Mitte #luckysgang” was happy about the victory. Only to later realize what a winner prize they’d get for a year: a top-equipped VW bus worth about 35,000 euros. Especially the two up-and-coming talents Loidl and Kaiser will use the bus together with their training mates next year.

Ronny Steidl, Head of Marketing at Osenstätter Kraftfahrzeuge GmbH, wished the team a good trip and best of luck before their departure.
After the successful premiere, the Mixed Team Relay will also be part of the 9th EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon in June 2020.

Results & certificates



From 27th to 30th of June, there’ll be one main topic in Chieming: Sports. Corporate run, school run and triathlon will attract sports enthusiasts and those who might get one, to the shores of the Chiemsee.
Those who take a closer look at the schedule of the Triathlon Festival will notice, that infact, it is not just about sports. The EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon is an event for the whole region. The numerous long-term partnerships between regional companies and events proove that, but also two new attractions this year. The Siegsdorfer Mammut – the rebuilt of a real mammoth – will be on race site. Fittingly, the Viking ship Freya will also anchor in front of Chieming.

Organizer Sven Hindl was enthusiastic: “The Freya being at our event in Chieming, is a dream came true.” The Viking ship which was built for the film “Wickie on a long journey” will serve a very special purpose. Actually, it has a famous role model: The legendary Ironman Hawaii has had a “coffee boat” in Kona Bay for many years. Athletes can take a short break during their swim training in the days before the race and enjoy an espresso. On the Chiemsee there will be Weißbier handed from the boat instead of coffee, of course. “It will be non-alcoholic beer,” laughs Hindl, giving a regional brewery the chance to present itself.

The “Weißbier-Boot” will invite athletes for a stopp during their swim on Saturday between 9.00 and 11.30 in the bay of Chieming.

The Freya is one of the attractions of the region, which offers locals and guests a special variety – whether for after work or corporate events. The Siegsdorfer Mammut also promotes an extraordinary project: the Siegsdorf Natural History and Mammoth Museum. The trailer with the life-size mammoth replica will be at the finish line area for photos and selfies from 27th to 30th of June. “Vikings and mammoths do fit together, don’t they” laughs Sven Hindl.

While athletes flying over the course, rushing through the transition zone and haveing tears of joy in their eyes at the finish line, they are close at hand: the presenters of the EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon. They are the ones transporting emotions to the audience, entertaining and providing information. A very special job, the organizers of the EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon are searching a young talent this year for.

German Radio presenter Bernd-Uwe Gutknecht and triathlon world champion Daniel Unger will be the celebrity presenters in 2019, accompanying the EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon on the microphone. Well-known presenters have a long traditionand at the Chiemsee, offering Pros and Age-Group athletes a perfect setting. TV presenters Hartwig Thöne and Annika Zimmermann, radio presenter Marion Schieder, triathlon presenter Till Schenk – big names. And you’ll get the chance to learn from the best, as a junior presenter at the Eberl Chiemsee Triathlon.

Apply for presenting at the Bike-Hotspot
The town passage Chieming is the hotspot. Hundreds of spectators gather here, cheering the athletes onto the bike course, into the next loop, or towards the transition zone. Right here you can prove your presenter-qualities. From the balcony of the Eiseria you’ll have the overview and you’ll keep the audience up to date.

“Sounds so simple, but infact it is not,” laughs Sport1 presenter Hartwig Thöne. “In order not to lose track, your triathlon-knowledge needs to be good and you need to be prepared. Checking timing-lists and talking at the same time requires a maximum of concentration. Then, the job is not just an hour, but a whole day long,” he explains. However, he smiles: “But when the audience cheer and get excited, that’s just fantastic and will leave you with goose bumps!”

If you are familiar with triathlon, have time on the 29th and 30th of June and if you are eloquent, please contact us at Write us your experience with triathlo and why you should become our junior presenter.
