World Triathlon Championship Series Hamburg

July 13 - 14, 2024

The "World's Biggest Tri" takes place in the heart of Hamburg. With around 8,000 participants and 300,000 spectators, this spectacular sporting event is the biggest triathlon in the world and attracts both professional and amateur athletes to the Hanseatic city every year. The elite individual races take place on Saturday. On Sunday, the mixed relay, where the relay world championship title will once again be awarded. Defending champion is Germany!

750 meters of swimming, 20 kilometers of cycling, 5 kilometers of running - some people break out in a sweat just thinking about each individual discipline. But for triathletes, the sprint distance is the real deal. The pros among them are on the hunt for important points for the world championship title in Hamburg, as the Hanseatic city is one of the six stops in the World Triathlon Championship Series, which runs around the globe from March to September.

But it's not just the top athletes who can jump into the Binnenalster at Jungfernstieg this weekend: Recreational athletes can also compete in the "Jedermann" competitions on the sprint course (500 meter swim, 20 kilometer bike ride, 5 kilometer run) or as a relay team. What they have in common with the professional athletes is not only their sporting ambition, but also the unique experience of swimming in the Alster, cycling along the wide streets through the most beautiful city in the world and crossing the finish line in front of an enthusiastic audience at the Rathausmarkt - if that's not motivation for top sporting performance! The spectators are the crowning glory and perform at their best every year at the world's largest triathlon.
