The TriStar format started in 2017 after a break in Switzerland on the shores of Lake Constance. Founded in 2009, the triathlon series organized 25 events in different countries with an attractive format at distances. The restart took place in September 2017 in Switzerland in Rorschach, in the strategically interesting border triangle (CH, Ö, D) on Lake Constance. The management was reshaped and even shines with a star cast of professional sports, the Olympic champion in the time trial, Fabian Cancellara complements the trio of the new TriStar leadership.

In Rorschach the following distances are offered (Sunday 15 July 2018):
TriStar 111: swim 1km – 100km bike – 10km run
TriStar 55.5: 500m swim – 50km bike – 5km run

Additionally to the Sunday races there will be activities and competitions for Kids and Family members on Saturday 14 July 2018.
