Attending the race meeting approx. 20 minutes before the start at the pier will also be compulsory. Information will be announced via loudspeakers.

There will be different start locations, courses and directions for swimming for the different competitions.

You will have to swim approx. 1.9 kilometres: Due to the competition regulations of the German triathlon association DTU, the current velocity of the river Rhine has to be considered for the length of the swimming course. Thus, the distance has to be enlarged for a current in the direction of swimming. The distances of our swimming courses are calculated according to the distance modifications for current velocity (“Distanzänderungen bei Strömungsgeschwindigkeiten”) in the appendix of the organiser regulation [Veranstalter-Ordnung (VaO)] of the DTU: 1,900m = 2,100m (with current) + 400m (without current/in the inner harbour).

For all competitions the swim exit will be at Rheinpark. Please make sure you will pass the timing mat and we can be sure that you will be safely back on land.

We, the organiser, will be entitled to withdraw you from swimming when it will be obvious that you cannot finish the swimming split or you will hazard yourself.

Should swimming not be possible due to low or high tide or other unpredictable reasons the race will be modified to a duathlon. Please take note of the loudspeaker announcements on race day.
