Germany is calling – will you pick up?

If we wanted to put it simply, we’d say that the Datev Challenge Roth is the ultimate bucket list item for triathletes – but it wouldn’t fully do it justice. It’s also the kind of event that sells out in 40 seconds, and that should tell you everything you need to know. There’s something truly extraordinary about it. 

The setting? Multifaceted roads, a fast course and legendary places. The people? Cheering for you from start to finish. The family? Tightly-knit from having lived through this incredible experience together. The champions? Just think back to the Challenge Roth of June 25, 2023, where Magnus Ditlev defended his title in a new world best time of 7:24:40 and Daniela Ryf beat the 12 year old world best time of Chrissie Wellington by almost ten minutes.

So… how would you feel about a chance to take part in this mythical challenge and having your name called at the Datev Challenge Roth finish line?

Here’s your once-in-a-lifetime chance!

Athletes who have signed up to the Sail Challenge Cap Quebec powered by Argon 18 into the P113 km mid-long-distance are eligible to win one of 20 spots to participate in the 2025 Datev Challenge Roth triathlon. All you have to do is sign up to the Port de Québec lottery at the athlete check-in. 

After the closing ceremony on July 21st, we’ll be treating you to a preview of the Roth experience. Everyone will be holding their breath as 20 names will be picked at random – regardless of time or performance. We’ll be rooting for you. If your name is picked, you’ll be accompanied to make your payment and secure your spot while being awarded a Port de Québec participation certificate – and then, Roth will be yours.

Welcome to the biggest long-distance triathlon in the world!

Dreams come true in the triathlon dream factory. The sports festival in the triathlon stronghold has been home to triathletes from all over the world since 1984. Picture it: 3.8 km of swimming, 180 km of cycling and 42.2 km of running, all through Roth bei Nürnberg, in the heart of Bavaria.

Emotions run high and goose bumps are guaranteed, from the mythical swim start at the Main-Danube Canal, to the legendary Solar Hill, and all the way to the magical finish line party in the triathlon stadium.
