    Project Description

    Swimming, Cycling, Running – the Zell am See-Kaprun region is just made for triathletes

    The Zeller Lake – centre of the Zell am See-Kaprun Region. It all revolves around the lake. Whether you take to the shores of the lake or any one of the many quiet routes that branch out from it, this is the perfect place for triathletes from all over the world. Its no surprise then that the Ironman 70.3 has come to Zell am See-Kaprun, the very first event having been staged in 2014. Thousands of triathletes come to this Zell am See-Kaprun every year to train for and participate in Ironman knowing that they are going to encounter a region so perfectly cut out for this challenging as well as beautiful sporting event.

    Spectacular Stages – Swimming, Cycling, Running

    Ironman 70.3 usually starts off from the swimming pool area at Schuttdorf. The triathletes plunge into the pristine clear water to begin this endurance race with a 1.9km swim. The lake temperature is just right for an event of this kind, not too hot, not too cold. The athletes then exit the lake and commence a 90km cycle stage that will take them through some of the most beautiful landscape to behold. Cycling through the alpine towns of Maria Alm and Dienten and along the limestone mountainsides of the Hochkönig. The run stage is no less impressive. It follows the banks of the lake affording gorgeous views of Zell am See and the Hohe Tauern mountain range and the Kitzsteinhorn glacier reflecting the rays of the sun.

    27 August 2017 it all kicks off again – but get here earlier.
