ITU World Triathlon

ITU World Triathlon Hamburg
09.00 - 18.00 City Wide

The ITU World Triathlon is world’s biggest triathlon with more than 10,000 top athletes heading to Hamburg this summer to compete for the title.

There are quite a few different races from the fast and furious sprint distances to the marathon distances plus team replays and paratriathlon. The whole city will be turning out to support these extra tough athletes and as the course stretches from the top of the Alster Lake to Flottbek you can bet that anywhere you end up you will be able to see some action.

So where can you get the best view? It really depends on what you want to see. The swimming section will be in the Binnenalster Lake so the Jungfernsteig or in the park by the Lombardsbrucke should give great views.

If running is your thing this course runs up and down the west side of the Alster Lake with a turnaround in the affluent area near Bellevue. You could pack a picnic head to the Alsterpark and make a day of it.

The cycling section follows the banks of the Elbe from the Altstadt all the way out to Jenischpark with the only significant hill on the course at the turnaround. You will probably get some good pics if you head to St Pauli Hafenstrasse and you can get in a spot of sightseeing too.

You can keep up to date with the latest results and info as the triathlon is on twitter.

It is worth remembering that as the race is on many of Hamburg’s roads public transport may be reduced in some areas and it could be a good idea to get where you need to go early.

Heading out from Generator Hamburg the Jungfernsteig and Altstadt are both only about a 15 minute walk. If you are looking to get to somewhere further away then the Hauptbahnhof Nord is your best bet.
