At the premiere of the Ten Friends Team Triathlon Frankfurt in 2015, almost 600 beginners completed their first triathlon in the Riedbad.
Among them were many beginners, company teams, clubs and groups of friends who competed with each other over three disciplines. The fact that the Frankfurt Team Event is so well suited for triathlon beginners is due to the family atmosphere, the LIVE bands, the delicious food, the children's bouncy castle, the children's events and the cool drinks (beer and Ebbelwoi from the barrel), but above all to the super pleasant and relaxed conception of the three popular distance disciplines swimming, cycling and running.
As everywhere, 380 meters of swimming are on the program - 20 minutes are available for this in the 50m meter sports pool of the Riedbad Bergen-Enkheim. After that it is not 20 meters until the participants reach the transition area.
The second discipline, the bike course, leads through the Enkheimer Ried in Frankfurt on a varied 3-lap course. Even in midsummer temperatures, the dense treetops provide sufficient shade for the triathlon beginners. Needless to say that not only everyman, but also experienced triathletes and mountain bikers get their money's worth on this varied course...
The running course in the east of Frankfurt impresses with its richness of facets. The triathletes run 2 times over the atmospheric event area and may admire picturesque orchards and the Riedteich outside the open-air swimming pool, as far as the condition allows it.
