It always starts with two athletes with 2 sec. Distance. Please always move up so that everyone is let into the water from the same spot. You then walk over the timing mat at the start, so that the time measurement starts at the same place for everyone. If you do not start or do not finish the swim, please contact a judge or helper.

To swim:
When swimming, you swim anti-clockwise, which means you swim up the dike on the right side from the perspective of the start and down again on the left side (you leave the buoys/floating jetty/SUP on the left). Each distance is swum near the edge of the lake. Half the distance from the swim entry, around a buoy and back again. A graphic is attached to the swim start.

transition zone:
The transition zone is located above the competition area (approx. 800 m) and below the swim start (150 m). The transition zone can only be entered by athletes and is only possible after collecting the starting documents and the prepared bike.

In competition, the bike may only be picked up after the helmet has been put on and the chin strap has been fastened. The bike must be pushed up to the ascent mark (line) at the end of the transition zone. On the way back to the transition area, you have to get off the bike in front of the descent marker (line) and then push the bike further to the transition area. The helmet may only be opened after the bike has been parked and the helmet removed.

Special note for relay participants:
The cyclist waits at his bike in the transition area for his swimmer and takes the chip. He already has his race number on his back. The runner will later wait there for the cyclist and take the chip.

To go biking:
The start number must be worn on the back of the bike. The road traffic regulations (StVO) apply, in particular the right-hand drive! The bike tour is on public roads, except for a short part on the feeder and the way back to the transition area (200 m before the transition area). There is also a point here where there is a narrowing, this is equipped with warnings. Please be particularly careful in these areas and reduce your speed appropriately. Crossing the center line in this area will result in direct disqualification.

All distances will be held with a slipstream ban. The slipstream zone is 12m long, measured from the front edge of the front wheel to the front edge of the following competitor's front wheel. An overtake must be made within 25 seconds. A rider is considered to be “passed” when the overtaker's front wheel is in front of the overtaken's. The overtaken must fall back and get out of the slipstream zone within 25 seconds. The lateral distance when overtaking must be at least 1.5m. A competitor who does not indicate clearly enough that they will comply with these regulations will be penalized with a time penalty.

Each distance runs a different number of laps, each athlete is responsible for counting his laps and then turning into the transition zone. The way from the transition zone to the cycling circuit and back (feeder at the lake) is 1 km each.
