There is the emotional experience of being a finisher in the stadium, the chance to win a free start for next year and also to win the draw for a high tech Cervélo bike frame.
Ferropolis/Dessau (Sachsen-Anhalt) − Ferropolis, near Dessau is the region of giants made of steel and also the new breathtaking world of the ITT Triathlon. With 7,000 tons of steel, framed by the deep blue water of Lake Gremminer, the venue is just perfect for a triathlon.
The start, finish and transition areas are located in this 10,000 square metre area. Under the “eyes” of these silent witnesses to more than 60 years of industrial history, athletes will certainly give everything for a “historical” performance.
DISTANCES HARD AS STEEL
Long, middle or short? With the ITT Triathlon Ferropolis athletes have all options. The longest distance they can choose is the ITT Half with 1.9km swim, 90km bike and 21km run. A classic distance, which is better known as the Olympic-Distance, is 1.5km / 40km / 10km. A short, but very fast course is offered with the ITT Sprint, where athletes have to swim 0.5km, bike 20km and run 5km – which means “full speed”. All three races are also offered as relay events.
Whether athletes participate with the Olympic motto “being there is everything” or whether they want to finish with a new personal record, it´s worth being a part of the event for other reasons.
