Rorschach: Würth Haus, Rorschach, Switzerland
A different approach to triathlon & easy understandable formats.
From short to long distances – individuals, corporate teams for the relay discipline and professional athletes. For every athlete the right distance!
The concept should offer triathlon races to broader range of athletes due to the attractive formats. New formats open up new opportunities for amateurs and allow beginners to stand side by side with top athletes. Beginners have the opportunitiy to take part in relay classes and thus focus on a discipline. On the other hand, TriStar can be used as a preparation for a long distance race. Shorter swimming and running distances require a shorter recovery time, giving the athlete the opportunity to participate in more races than before. More TriStar, more fun!
After a break the TriStar triathlon series has been relaunched in 2017. The series was founded in 2009 and 25 events were held in different countries with this attractive format. The relaunch event has been taken place in Rorschach in the border region where Switzerland, Germany and Austria meet.
The management consisting of the prestigious olympic champion Fabian Cancellara as one of the three co-owners. At the TriStar in Rorschach the following distances are offered (single and relay):
TriStar 111: 1km swim – 100km bike – 10km run
TriStar 55.5: 500m swim – 50km bike – 5km run
