One of the toughest triathlons in the world comes to Frankfurt

One of the toughest triathlons in the world comes to Frankfurt


May 23, 2012

Visitors taking a car hire in Frankfurt this summer can see spectacular feats of strength during the Ironman European Championship, taking place July 8. More than 2,300 athletes from 55 countries will descend on the city to test their mettle and compete for the glory and adulation of the crowds.

The Ironman competition is one of the most intense and physically demanding triathlons in the world. Contestants first have to prove their stamina by swimming for almost 2.5 miles along the Waldsee Langen river. As if that weren't challenging enough, athletes must then endure a 112-mile bike ride around the Frankfurt countryside, before racing to the finish in a 26-mile run along the city streets.

In addition to the gruelling physical challenges, the Ironman competition will feature exhibitions of the latest athletic equipment from some of the world's most famous sporting goods manufacturers including Nike, Reebok and New Balance. Visitors can also relax in the designated party area, which will host a range of family friendly entertainment and refreshments.

A punishing test of skill, strength and endurance, the Ironman triathlon is truly a sight to behold. Visitors can take a car hire in Germany to reach the event and see some of the world's top athletes compete for glory this summer.
