There have been a few attempts now to spread the world of Deca into the UK. This was the latest event organised by Claire Smith and her Brutal team and saw the now customary selection of events for athletes to select from. The IUTA classified events were the continuous Deca and Quin.
Sensation at the 28th Triple-Ultra-Triathlon in Lensahn/Germany. Mareile Hertel set a new world record on the triple ultra triathlon distance.
The third race of the IUTA World Cup took place at the very charming and beautiful Rogner Bad Blumau in Austria. With 69 athletes at the Double, Triple and Quintuple Ultra Triathlon it was one of the biggest Ultra Triathlon Events ever.
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.
59 athletes at the start line, 44 at the finish line and one world record – that’s the result of the fourth Double Ultra Triathlon in Emsdetten/Germany.
1st race of the IUTA cup is complete: The Florida Double Anvil which took place on March 8th and 9th, 2019 in Lake Louisa Park, in Clermont, FL. Clermont is a small town just outside of the more popular city of Orlando. Clermont actually has some hills and elevation as is evidence on this race course which has a bike loop containing about 150ft (46 m) elevation per loop totaling an approximately 4,500 ft of climbing during the bike (1,370 m). Most people think of Florida as a flat terrain, edged with beautiful beaches and warm temperatures. But Clermont adds some altitude to the warm weather.
