Crystal-clear water, majestic Alps, the splendid Herrenchiemsee Castle – Race where others spend holidays of a lifetime! In summer 2019, the 8th EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon once again brings high-class sports to Bavaria’s most beautiful spots.
The start of the triathlon is located at the eastern shore of the largest lake in Bavaria, the Chiemsee, in the picturesque village of Chieming. The sportive challenge athletes find here: 2 kilometres swimming, 80 kilometres cycling and 20 kilometres running. Or exactly half of it on the Olympic Distance. On Saturday, the Sprint Distance will be held, and new, the Mixed Team Relay race. Paratriathletes can compete at all distances. “Triathlon for all,” is the motto of the race.
Starting at the Chieming Bay, the athletes plunge into the waters of the so-called “Bavarian Sea” and swim towards the world-famous Herreninsel. The bike course leads athletes on a circuit through the idyllic Chiemgau in the shadow of the impressive Prealps, before the running course leads alongside the shores of the Chiemsee.
