Registration for the first ever Challenge Regensburg opens on Monday 1 June, with several hundred athletes already pre-registered – including two-time Ironman wold champion Chris ‘Macca’ McCormack.


The race start on 14 August with a 3.8km swim in Lake Guggenberger, just outside the former capital of Bavaria, Germany.

Athletes will then embark on a 180km bike around the local roads, followed by a marathon through the heart of Regensburg, a world heritage city thanks to its beautifully preserved mediaeval centre.
