380 meters swimming - 7,5 lanes in 50m pool

Please pay attention to this information.

The starts take place every 15 minutes. That’s how long you have to swim the 380 meters Since we want to swim 380 meters (and not 400 meters), the start line is 20 meters from the front of the pool, this is the pre-start area. Like a swimmer’s highway, 10 friends swim simultaneously and one after the other. It is a water start. You will have the opportunity to slowly enter the water and swim in before the start. If you don’t manage to finish the 7.5 lanes within 20 minutes, the race will still go on and can be finished regularly. There is no cut-off times – you will be in the pool for a short time with the following team.

18 kilometers cycling - 3 laps - shady & varied

The bike lap at the Beginner Triathlon Frankfurt is 5.6 kilometers long and will be run 3 times. With the feeder we come to a distance of 18 kilometers. The route is on wide, partly developed forest roads, so-called forest highways. The bike course is flat and suitable for beginners. Ordinary “Holland bikes” or city bikes are suitable. There is a ban on overtaking in the area of the feeder road The bike course is not suitable for racing bikes. If you want to ride your road bike on an asphalt track, then check out our other race in Darmstadt. Under Pictures & Videos (in the menu) you will also find pictures of the bike course.

Safety advice from the responsible forestry: Please do not use the tracks as a test – race track before the competition! We would like to reduce the restrictions for residents, nature and animals to a necessary minimum. Thank you for your support.

4.2 kilometer run - 2 laps

The 2.1-kilometer running loop will be run twice. In the area of the swimming pool and after the finish there will be a refreshment point with water and fruit. The course is flat and suitable for beginners. You will pass an aid station a total of 3 times during the entire race!

Directions & Parking

Like almost everywhere in Frankfurt, there is limited parking available. We recommend the Frankfurt starters to travel by public transport or by bike if possible. The red areas directly by the pool are expected to be occupied by the early starters -. Fritz-Schubert-Ring 2, 60388 Frankfurt.
