HYLO® TRIATHLON 2021

Online registration for the Hylo Triathlon Saarbrücken opens on July 7

After intensive discussions with the local authorities and all partners involved, it is now certain that the Hylo Triathlon Saarbrücken will take place on August 29, 2021, on the site of the Olympic Training Centre in Saarbrücken. Online registration opens on July 7 at 10 am on the website https://www.hylo-city-triathlon.de/anmeldung.

The event can celebrate its premiere not least due to the tireless commitment of the Saarland Triathlon Union (STU) and its partner URSAPHARM. “We are very happy to be able to offer triathletes in Saarland and the surrounding area a competition this summer. Due to the pandemic, some events already had to be cancelled, so it is all the more important that the Hylo Triathlon Saarbrücken can take place,” says Rüdiger Sauer, head of the organizing team. “For all measures to be taken, we are guided by the hygiene concept of the German Triathlon Union, which was developed last year and recently adapted to DOSB standards.”

“The HYLO Triathlon Saarbrücken is an important event for us in the summer of 2021. We hope that the athletes will have fun and give their best in the competition, despite the hygiene measures that are still in place,” says Boris Röder, Head of Corporate Communications at URSAPHARM.

In consultation with the authorities, it was decided to hold the triathlon on the site of the Olympic Training Centre and the University of Saarbrücken, thus moving it out of the city centre. Up to 300 participants will be able to compete over a slightly shortened sprint distance (400 metre swim, 14.4 kilometre bike, 4 kilometre run).

The swim will take place in the 50 m indoor pool at the Olympic base. This provides ideal conditions – without current or waves. The bike course is a compact circuit over the L252 highway and the campus of Saarland University. While the course takes a few curves on the grounds, you can pick up some serious speed on the long straights of the highway. The running course also runs as a circuit on the site of the Olympic Training Centre and through the adjacent forest, which provides shade on sunny days and offers a soft surface for running.

The announcement of the Hylo Triathlon with all important information can be downloaded from Wednesday and is available on the website https://www.hylo-city-triathlon.de/. In the coming weeks we will inform you regularly about everything you need to know about the Hylo Triathlon 2021 on this website.
