Region: Southern South Tyrol
Swimming, cycling and running – for these three disciplines you should be quite fit, if you would like to gain the title "Montigglman". The triathlon that goes with it is scheduled for the end of the summer in the area of the Little Lake of Montiggl.
The section triathlon of the runners’ club Bozen organizes this challenge for versatile jocks in Montiggl. The lake district south of Eppan is just made for it. However, you shouldn’t be fooled by the idyllic nature, because the competitions are fastidious.
Three demanding distances
The go-ahead for the Montigglman Triathlon is given on Saturday, 8th September 2018 at 2 p.m. next to the lido of the Little Lake of Montiggl. The water temperature will be about 20 to 24°C, but the participants won’t have a lot of time to enjoy it. After all, they have to do the 400 meter long course in the water as fast as possible.
This first discipline is followed by a 10 kilometer long mountain bike course with some short, but demanding ascents. Last but not least, the sportsmen have to do at a run three laps or rather 2.5 kilometers around the Little Lake of Montiggl.
The triathlon is hold as individual competition for men and women in different age groups and as relay race. Afterwards, there will be a pasta party and round about 4.30 p.m. there will be the presentation ceremony.
