What is Tristar

TriStar takes the world's most popular sports disciples - swimming, cycling and running - to serve them in the most fun and enjoyable way.

The events are designed for accessibility by triathletes and all other kinds of athletes who want to participate in races combining the world's three most popular sports disciplines.

The TriStar event series is based on a simple and understandable concept, unlike many other triathlon race formats. New formats attracting amateurs widen the scope of people interested in participation, which makes us witness rookies standing side by side with top triathletes. Beginners are pleased by the possibility to join relay teams where they can focus on one of the three disciplines;professional can use TriStar as a preparation for long-distance races. Shorter swim and run distances enable shortened recovery times, giving athletes the possibility to participate in more races than before. More TriStar, more fun!



Compared to other triathlon formats the TriStar formats offers a short swim course which is very interesting for triathlon beginners or pro athletes.


The focus of the TriStar triathlon lays on the bike course. Breathtaking scenery and mostly hilly bike courses are the way to show your bike ability and gives you nice experience on the bike.


The running distance is formed to have a quick and short run on a mostly flat running course. This short running courses guarantee you a shorter recovery time to race more races.
