ETU Triathlon Sprint Europameisterschaften 2017
Sunday, 25.06.2017
Start: Am Handelshafen - Ziel: Stromstraße (Gehry-Bauten)
    Altersklassen und Hobbytriathleten T³ Triathlon Düsseldorf

    Speaking about his participation in the ETU Triathlon Sprint European Championships in Düsseldorf on 24 and 25 June, Lasse Lührs says: “For me, it is the highlight of the season.” The 21-year old, who is taking part for Potsdam, has been a triathlete since 2010. He was the German champion and Junior European Champion in 2015. Lührs knows and likes the Düsseldorf route, seeing it as a “home race”.

    In total up to 2,000 athletes – top-class and in age classifications – will be competing at the MedienHafen for the European Championship titles. The competition routes are the same as those used for the T3 Triathlon Düsseldorf, and cover distances of 750 m for swimming, 19.5 km for cycling, and 5 km for running. The event will be rounded off with a three-day triathlon trade fair, a pasta party and a side programme for all the family on the Landtagswiese in front of the state parliament building.

    The T3 Triathlon will be staged this year as part of the European championships on 25 June – although there will only be open races for the sprint and sprint relay distances. According to Sonja Oberem, event manager of the Triathlon European Championships and herself a former triathlete, the three-part competition is becoming ever more popular: “A couple of years ago, everyone was mad about the marathon. Now a great many athletes prefer a sport with more variety.” The growing number of participants speaks for itself – as does the venue: while many competitions were previously staged out in the countryside, they are meanwhile taking place in attractive locations right in the middle of cities.
