In August, Bremen will be busy running, swimming and cycling: The "Gewoba City Triathlon" enters its ninth round. Around 1,100 participants will be at the starting line. The head of the Europahafen harbour serves as the central action point. The start and finish line as well as the catering facilities are located here.
The "Gewoba City Triathlon" will be accompanied by presenter Roland Kanwicher, a DJ on stage, catering for participants and spectators and entertaining games and activities for children. The Gewoba City Triathlon will also host the German age group championships for the sprint distance.
A total of three competitions with different distances are held as part of the "Gewoba City Triathlon". This means that top athletes and amateur athletes will find the right challenge for them. Those who are not yet confident enough to take on all three disciplines alone have the opportunity to compete in a team in the company relay triathlon, women's relay triathlon, men's relay triathlon or mixed relay triathlon.
The following requirements are available:
People's triathlon: 500 m swim | 20 km bike | 5 km run
Relay triathlon: 500 m swimming | 20 km cycling | 5 km running
Bremen state championship Olympic: 1.5 km swim | 40 km bike | 10 km run

The opening swimming discipline starts at the pivotal point in the European harbour. A traffic-free 10 km course is provided for the subsequent bike race. The athletes complete the final run on a turning point course on the Weser promenade "Schlachte". After 2.5 km, the route leads back to the finish area at the Europahafen harbour.
