The crowd in Panevezys saw two finishers in the men's field, who beat the 20-hours-mark and a fantastic new world record from the polish athlete Robert Karas at the Double Ultra Triathlon. In the woman's category, Alina Ranceva from Lithuania won the IUTA world championship race in an exciting battle with the current world champion at the Triple-Ultra-Distance Marie Veslestaul from Norway.
Sensation at the 28th Triple-Ultra-Triathlon in Lensahn/Germany. Mareile Hertel set a new world record on the triple ultra triathlon distance.
The IUTA-familiy sorrow for the founder of the first ever held Ultra Triathlon in the world. Our friend Dr. Raymond "Ray" Sheppard died at the age of 73 in June 2019 after a brief illness. Together with his wife Nancy he organized the Double Ultra Triathlon in Huntsville, Alabama, USA from 1985 until 1996. Above you find the official tribute and obituary … rest in peace.
