In 2018 we will organize the 575 Triathlon race again in the wonderful Keszthely.
The successful halfdistance of the previous years has represented more and more competitors and supporters every year thanks to the great organization and the beautiful Balaton environment.
This year, Andreas Raelert proved to be the fastest one, who finished the race in three hours 47 minutes. Behind him shortly after the only 25 years old Thomas Steger ran. In the women's field, Michaela Herlbauer won with 4:19.
We feel good about the way they saw the race:
Not only this year, but last year there were star triathletes too, like David Plese scored second place and shortly behind him Timo Bracht became the third. In the women, Diana Riesler got the gold medal.
We will raise the bet in 2018, and we expect you to have an even better racing track where you can bike on a fully closed road with wide high-quality asphalt. We also re-plan our rinning course so the beautiful Festetics Castle will get a bigger role.
During swimming, boats and kayakers will take care of you while on the bicycle and on the runing course we will refresh you by high5. Not only isotonic drinks, but also gels and slices are waiting for you!
The 2018 575 Triathlon Sport Weekend welcomes everyone, not only for you, but for your friends, fans, and family too. If you are just getting interested about the triathlon, you can try out the Olympic distance on Sunday, but if you just want to run, on Saturday night the you can choose the 7 and 14 km long 575 run during the night. Running can only be register online, which starts on November 8th. Children are free to run (between 3 and 14), but they are also required to register and enter. We create shorter distances for the kids like 300 m, 600m, and 1200m.
We will soon provide more information on the entry of the Olympic Distance.
Of course, in addition to the many racing opportunities you can find many other programs in Keszthely. There are plenty of beaches at Lake Balaton, but there are also hiking trips, wine cellars, museums and restaurants nearby. The famous Hévíz Spa is just one step where everything has been given to relax after the competition.
