IRONMAN 70.3, Tri-Zell and triathlon in the Zell am See-Kaprun region

1.9 km of swimming through the lake, 90 km of cycling on the region's most beautiful cycling route and finally 21 km of running on an amazing running route around Lake Zell. Sounds like a week programme of sports activities of holidaymakers in Zell am See-Kaprun? Wrong: it's the day programme of ironmen and ironwomen who register for the Ironman 70.3 event in Zell am See every year. Triathletes combine three of the best sports in one amazing competition. If only there was one region offering the ideal conditions for preparing for a competition like this. Luckily, such region exists: Zell am See-Kaprun!

Where if not here

Looking around in the region, you immediately realise: Zell am See-Kaprun is made for triathlon. The lake nestles quietly in a beautiful valley, surrounded by the most amazing cycling routes of the Salzburger Land and with sensational running routes of all intensity levels in close proximity. Where if not here would you combine swimming, cycling and running to one sport. Plenty of motivated triathletes, who visit the region for training, preparation or participation in events every year, are aware of this.

The water temperature of Lake Zell is perfect, not too warm and not too cold. Lake Zell is ideal for swim training. The good stamina you build up when pedalling on the racing cycle tours around the Großglockner, Hochkönig or into neighbouring Tyrol will be of advantage when you take part in the next triathlon event. The same goes for the running routes. With view to the Hohe Tauern, training here is amazing. You have also the option to use asphalted roads, forest paths and meadow trails for your running training. The choice is yours. Your competitors will definitely find you quite difficult to beat.

Die Wassertemperatur des Zeller Sees ist perfekt. Weder zu warum noch zu kalt eignet sich der See hervorragend zum Schwimmtraining. Auf den Rennradtouren rund um Großglockner, Hochkönig oder ins benachbarte Tirol warten tolle Abschnitte für Grundlagen- und Intervalltraining. Das gilt auch für die Laufstrecken. Wahlweise findet Ihr Lauftraining auf Asphaltstraßen, Forstwegen oder Wald- und Wiesentrails statt. Sie haben die Wahl und Ihre Gegner werden alle Hände voll zu tun haben, mit Ihnen mitzuhalten.
