One of the biggest triathlon events in Europe begins in the east bay of Lake Wörthersee here in Klagenfurt. These “Ironmen” athletes first hit the course for a 3.8 km swim, followed by a 180 km bike ride and a  42.2 km run. And thousands of fans will be there to cheer them on ...

Probably the most popular leg of this race takes place in the crystal-clear water of Wörthersee. By the time they make it to the biking and running stages, of course, the athletes will have precious little time to enjoy the idyllic scenery. Not least because thousands of exciting fans will also be blocking their view. But that’s the way it should be .... and one of the main reasons these triathletes love to return to Klagenfurt am Wörthersee time and again.

The next Ironman gets underway on Sunday, 02 July 2017 when the starting shot will be fired at the Klagenfurt lake resort.
