Cologne - You’ll find the longest bar in Düsseldorf, the best triathlon event in the Rheinland area in Cologne. The Cologne Triathlon Weekend 2012 from Aug 31 to Sept 9, 2012 – candidate for another participants‘ record – stands for a three day top sports event, top athletes and five distances (Kids, Smart, Olympic, Half Distance, Long Distance). Swimming in the Rhine river? No, we use the World Championship Regatta Course of Fühlinger See lake. The cycling course is flat and fast but susceptible to wind – therefore better optimize your aerodynamics in the wind tunnel beforehand. During Cologne226 and Cologne226 half, athletes can look forward to a sensational home stretch directly on the Rhine river. The Cologne Triathlon Weekend organization team consists of experienced and enthusiastic triathletes – which becomes pretty obvious during the event.
