The new CGN City Triathlon – Where ”CGN City“ is labelled, ”Cologne City“ has to inside!

Everything will be different in 2020: a new organiser, a new format, a new location! In collaboration with the local Cologne clubs and in cooperation with the City of Cologne as well as the regional triathlon federation, the Nordrhein-Westfälischer Triathlon-Verband NRWTV, the new CGN City Triathlon will get a completely new shape:

The organisers of the Cologne Marathon took over the scepter and will put the new triathlon onto a professional basis as they will introduce their year-long experiences from implementing Germany’s #4 (closed) marathon.

Besides the middle distance there will be an Olympic and a hobby distance and also a relay team variant of the hobby triathlon.

And the biggest novelty will be the new event location: Where ”CGN City“ is labelled, ”Cologne City“ has to inside! As of 2020 the Cologne Triathlon will take place in downtown Cologne, therefore ”city”, and in front of the city’s landmark, Cologne Cathedral. The hub for the new triathlon in Cologne will be the Charles-de-Gaulle-Platz in Cologne-Deutz.
