Your Experience

Challenge Roth is widely considered one of the most spectacular races on the calendar and is one that every triathlete should experience at least once in their career.

Entries to the iconic event sell out in minutes and that is credit to the wonderful job the organisers and the local community do in producing one of the best triathlon experiences on the planet.

Experience the energy of over 100,000 spectators calling your name and be part of our 2024 Challenge Roth Tour.

The race has long become a legend: The first edition of the triathlon festival in the European triathlon metropolis of Roth took place in 1984.

The competition starts with a 3.8 kilometres swim in the Main-Donau-Canal, followed by a 180 kilometres bike race and a marathon run of 42,2 kilometres. The flat and spectator-friendly one-lap route links the “traditional course” along the Canal with the inner city of Roth and Büchenbach. The winner of DATEV Challenge Roth powered by hep will probably again cross the finish-line in less than eight hours this year. The unbelievable world’s best time established by Jan Frodeno in Roth in 2016 is 7:35:39 hours.

As part of Challenge Roth’s commitment to be an international bucket-list race, entry slots have been made available as part of an international tour package that covers all your race week needs including a choice of event week accommodation and all your logistical and transport requirements.

You will be treated like a VIP as we deliver the Challenge Roth experience to you, your family, and friends, with special race week functions, course orientations and more.

The Challenge Roth Tours programme has been enabling international athletes to fully embrace the magic of Challenge Roth race week now for over ten years - ensuring a seamless race preparation for athletes and their supporting families.
